What is Tested?

The IELTS Writing test features two distinct question types, each designed to assess specific writing skills.

Task 1: Summarizing Facts or Figures from Graphic Information

In Task 2 of the IELTS Academic Writing test, you will be asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, an argument, or a problem. The essay should be written in an academic or semi-formal style, and the topics will focus on a particular aspect of a relevant issue.

The task instructions will provide you with information about the question, telling you how to discuss the topic in your essay. You may be asked to provide factual information, outline and present solutions, justify an opinion, or evaluate evidence and ideas.

It is essential to complete the task carefully, using relevant ideas and examples to support your position. Your ideas should be organized clearly, using paragraphs for each idea. You must write a minimum of 250 words.

The word “edify” means to mentor, counsel, and educate. In my recent career as an entrepreneur (IELTS trainer), the primary challenge is to educate the parents of the students aspiring to study abroad. Counseling and mentoring go hand-in-hand with education. There is a dire need to edify the people of our nation and contribute to its development and growth. This inspired me to initiate the global campaign under the hashtag #edifyingyoungminds. I realize that my contribution is just a drop in this vast ocean, but every drop counts! I believe that we only age chronologically, while we always remain young in our hearts and minds. So, let’s embark on this journey together.
