Planning an essay is the best way to achieve a band 7 score on the Task 2 IELTS writing task. The essay takes 40 minutes to complete but you should take at least 10 minutes to plan your essay before you start to write.
NEVER START UNTIL YOU’VE COMPLETED YOUR ESSAY PLAN.
Examiners will give you a higher score if your essay is clear to read. If the essay is well planned your essay will be easier to follow.
Make sure your essay uses ‘information chunking’. This is the way you can write by separating your essay into logical sections or ‘chunks’ so it is easier to follow.
Creating ideas for your essay
The examiner will give you a high band score if you present a number of clear relevant ideas to support your argument or point of view.
Ideas should be organized into three basic categories: positions, main ideas and supporting ideas. These will form the order and content of each of your paragraphs.
