My Writing Score In The IELTS Doesn’t Go Beyond A 6. Or A 7. What Can I Do?

You don’t need to worry. Global Colliance is your way out. No need of taking a gamble anymore. Be rest assured the Writing task will not be an encumbrance anymore. It is our responsibility to help you overcome this hurdle.


The writing task is divided into 2 sections, Task 1 and Task 2. The total time for both the tasks is 60 minutes. You should ideally try and write Task 1 as fast as possible, and give more time to writing Task 2

Task 1: You are asked to describe some visual information such as a (graph/table/chart etc.) in your own words. The minimum word limit is 150 words and has to be completed in 20 minutes.

Task 2: It is an essay. The minimum word limit is 250 words and has to be completed in 40 minutes. There is more weightage in this task which is double as much of the writing band score.

How are the Writing tasks marked?

Both the tasks are assessed independently. Scores are given in bands. The task responses are marked on 4 criteria.

  • Task achievement – It is how you achieve the task which is asked in the question.
  • Coherence and Cohesion – It is how you organize your essay and connect your ideas together
  • Lexical Resource – Is the wide range of vocabulary that you use.
  • Grammatical range and accuracy – It is how perfect you are in your grammar and punctuations.

One of the most feared part of the exam is the Writing exam, which is formulated to assess an aspirants writing skills.

Writing Structure & Format

Be it the Task 1 or Task 2 each has a specified structure and format. This is usually a bone of contention. You will be taught the proper structure and format to follow for the exam. The correct structure and format are very important for your marking criteria. Task 1 differs from Task 2, as far as the structure and format is concerned.

Task 2 comprises of 7 different types of essays, and for every essay there is a format which you need to follow. Once you have mastered these formats for these essays, you have won half the battle.

Lexical Resource

It is another name for Vocabulary. Most of the time students’ struggle with insufficient vocabulary, especially those whose mother-tongue is not English. But you don’t have to be worried about how you are going to learn enough vocabulary. Global Colliance provides you with a plethora of Vocabulary, Collocations, Linker Words and Synonyms, which would be useful to you for your IELTS exam. Regular conduction of mock tests on different topics would upgrade your vocabulary.


Another area in the writing task which students’ have an issue, is with the Grammar. They find it very difficult to form sentences properly. Your writing would be corrected regularly by the faculty. The marking criteria for Grammar also includes Spellings, punctuation marks, Compound sentences, Embedded Sentences and Complex sentences. All these would be taught to you, since they are very important in scoring a 7 band.


Usually, students are taught that they need to paraphrase the question, but they find it very tough to tackle this problem. You will be taught the correct method on how to paraphrase the question, both for Task 1 and Task 2. This will help ease the stress a little by writing a perfect introduction.

Body Paragraphs

Before writing the body paragraphs it is important to make an outline, in order to write a crisp essay. Once you have understood the format perfectly, it will be very easy for you to write the body paragraphs. Depending on the type of question asked you would accordingly write the body parts.

But taking a look at Task 1, you would be writing the main details paragraphs. It is very simple if you follow exactly what is being explained to you.


Writing a Conclusion is not as hard as it may seem. Again, based on the type of question, you would be required to write the summary, which would be the gist of the body paragraphs.

Essay Topic Ideas

It is quite difficult at times for students, as to what content to write. You will be given with all the possible ideas on different topics, thus making it easy for you to write a good essay.

There you go, now that you have read through this entire blog on IELTS writing, you would have got a general understanding about what the writing task is all about. So, what are you waiting for? Just Call the Experts, we guarantee that you won’t regret it.
