During IELTS writing exam, many students find tempting to give their written exam. They get free hand to write as much as they can in the time allotted. In this time span, they can showcase their knowledge towards the language. But, do you think, this can help them attain a good band score? Well, not really, as there are other aspects as well which students need to focus on before appearing for their writing exam.
IELTS writing exam is divided into 2 parts: Task1 and Task2. Task1 consists of some pictorial and graphical information and students are required to write a description about the information provided of about 150-170 words. On the other side, Task2 is an important part of the written exam. If a student goes wrong with the answer, no marks will be given, thus loosing the way to score a good score. A topic will be given and students will have to produce an argument in written with examples. Time allotted will be of 40 minutes i.e. longer than Task1, so it is advised to spend the time accordingly.

It’s all about the quality that will matter the most.
