IELTS Writing Tips

1) Word count

Learn how many words you usually write on a line, and how many lines = 150 and 250 words, so you don’t waste time counting words in the test

2)  Subjective statements

Learn to identify ‘factual’ lines and ‘subjective’ lines.

Example statement:

1. Some people prefer to live in a house.

2. Others think that there are more advantages living in an apartment

3. Are there more advantages than disadvantages living in a house rather than an apartment?

Question given to you:

Are there more advantages than disadvantages to living in a house rather than in an apartment?

It is the subjective statement that determines the main theme of discussion in your topic.
