Tips for the Writing Task 1 of the IELTS Academic test

Make sure, it’s not how to write. What to write means what information you should convey while giving IELTS writing task 1. But before understanding what to write, let’s analyse, how the task 1 of IELTS Writing exam is conducted.


Let’s come straight to the point, the term completely deals with Information Graphic, Bar Chart, Diagram, Table, etc. In IELTS Writing task 1, the questions are asked in the form of Infographic and you are required to convert graphic visual into words.
Minimum word limit should be 150, however, to score well, aspirants should limit the words with in the range of 170 to 190 words.

What is need to be done –

1.The introduction regarding the asked question should be completed in 1 to 2 sentences. Elaborating the introduction will make a negative impression and you might loose marks.
For Example – Answer like, This table shows, This table illustrates, This table demonstrates.

Don’t give a brief illustration like. As the question is asked, the following table tells us following information. This is a wrong way of starting your answer.

2.While answering, never use I, ME, WE. The term is all about the graphic information and you are required to explain accordingly. Also avoid your Personal Opinion, Prediction and Over Explanation.

3.While answering you just need to talk about the facts and logic associated with the question in good English. One thing students need to remember is your analysis and conclusions will not help you to score well. Only your English writing skills will be examined in IELTS Writing Exam.

For Example – From the bar chart, explain how the decline in inflation affected the manufacturing sector?

Now in the above question, you must limit your answer impressively according to the information provided in the bar chart. You don’t need to answer like an economics professional.
