In this video recorded by Ross IELTS Academy, we check out an Academic Writing Task1 written by one of our candidates, and see why he got stuck in band 6.5, and give you some useful tips on how to get 7 when writing a Pie Chart report.
Before doing that, remember 4 important things when you practicing IELTS writing:
1. First of all, in all kinds of charts like line charts, pie charts, bar charts, tables, and multigraphs you should mention 4 key features in 2 sentences. If you name more than 4 key features, you will lose points in task response.
2. Don’t do comparisons when it is not necessary. When you compare too much in detail paragraphs one and two, it can have a negative impact on the coherence and cohesion of your text.
3. Try not to use repetitive vocabulary. Instead, use synonyms in order to avoid repetition in your writing but always have in mind that if you are not 100 percent sure about a synonym, it’s recommended to use the same word again, that’s better than making a mistake.
4. Most of your sentences should be grammatically error-free. If you want to get 7 and above in your grammar, you should only use complex grammatical structures.
