Hello in this lesson, I want to look at a very important question that many students ask me about IELTS writing task. 2. Here’S the question: do I get a higher band score if I have a longer essay now?
This is a very important question. How long should you essay be? There are a number of points I want to explain to you about the length of your essay, so the first point is, of course you must write over 250 words.
That is the task given to you. Those are your instructions and if you write under that, there could be problems and yes, the examiner will check how many words you’ve written number two – and here is a direct answer to the question. You do not get more marks for a longer essay now.
I know that for many of you at University, if you write a longer essay, you get better marks, but this does not apply to IELTS. The examiner is not looking for a long essay. The examiner is looking for relevant ideas. Number three.
The other point is you only have about 35 minutes to write you essay now they recommend that you have forty minutes, but at least 5 minutes should be spent planning your essay. Can you pay someone to write an essay? I guess, yes, it will be more quality essay.
You need to look at the statement given to you need to analyze it and you need to plan relevant ideas for your answer. It’S very important to have five minutes for planning your ideas and you answer are worth 25 % if your marks. So that means you only have about 35 minutes to actually write your essay so aiming for longer. Essay will not give you more marks and will be very difficult in the time you’ve got.
The next point is a lot of students often ask: “Can you pay someone to write an essay?” when they try to extend their writing to write over 300 words. They put lots of extra information in that essay, and this information is often a little bit relevant or it’s off the topic. Now in IELTS you will lose marks if you write irrelevant information or if you go off the topic in your essay.
So is a very bad idea to try to write 300 words. If the information you are adding will go off topic so the recommendation, I recommend you aim for between 260 and 280. That is enough words to extend and develop each main idea in order to get a higher band score. Well, if you found this lesson useful, please share it with your friends and don’t forget.
