IELTS Writing

IELTS Writing Duration and Format ielts-writing

The Writing Module takes 60 minutes. There are two tasks to complete. It is suggested that about 20 minutes is spent on Task 1 which requires candidates to write at least 150 words. Task 2 requires at least 250 words and should take about 40 minutes. Candidates may write on the Question Paper but this cannot be taken from the test room and will not be seen by the examiner. Answers must be given on the Answer Sheet and must be written in full. Notes are not acceptable as answers.


IELTS Academic Writing

In Task 1 candidates are asked to interpret a diagram or table, and to present the information in their own words. Depending on the type of input and the task suggested, candidates are assessed on their ability to:

 

• organize, present and possibly compare data

• describe the stages of a process or procedure

• describe an object or event or sequence of events

explain how something works
 

In Task 2 candidates are presented with a point of view or argument or problem. Candidates are assessed on their ability to:
 

• present the solution to a problem

• present and justify an opinion

• compare and contrast evidence, opinions and implications

• evaluate and challenge ideas, evidence or an argument
 

Part of the task realization is to respond appropriately in terms of register, rhetorical organization, style and content. Appropriate responses are short essays or general reports, addressed to tutors or examiners.

IELTS General Training Writing

In Task 1 candidates are asked to respond to a given problem with a letter requesting information or explaining a situation. Depending on the task suggested, candidates are assessed on their ability to:


• engage in personal correspondence
• elicit and provide general factual information
• express needs, wants, likes and dislikes
• express opinions (views, complaints etc.)

In Task 2 candidates are presented with a point of view or argument or problem. Candidates are assessed on their ability to:

• provide general factual information
• outline a problem and present a solution
• present and possibly justify an opinion, assessment or hypothesis
• present and possibly evaluate and challenge ideas, evidence and argument

The topics are of general interest and it makes no difference what subjects candidates study. Part of the task realization is to respond appropriately in terms of register, rhetorical organization, style and content. Appropriate responses are personal semi-formal or formal correspondence (Task 1) and short essays or general reports, addressed to course tutors or examiners (Task 2).


Marking and Assessment
Each task is assessed independently. The assessment of Task 2 carries more weight in marking than Task 1. Writing scripts are marked by trained and certificated IELTS examiners. Scores are reported as whole bands only. Detailed performance descriptors have been developed which describe written performance at the 9 IELTS bands. These descriptors are confidential. Task 1 scripts are assessed on the following criteria: Task Fulfillment, Coherence and Cohesion and Vocabulary and Sentence Structure. Task 2 scripts are assessed on performance in the following areas: Arguments, Ideas and Evidence, Communicative Quality and Vocabulary and Sentence Structure.Scripts under the required minimum word limit will be penalized.
