How to Score IELTS Band 7+ Writing?

You'll have to write an almost ideal essay to do that in IELTS writing.

We will examine what you are labeled for each criterion in order to understand how we can score IELTS band 7+:

  • Task Response / Achievement
  • Coherence and Cohesion
  • Lexical Resource
  • Grammatical Range and Accuracy

In order to achieve IELTS band 7+ for Task Response / Achievement, you need to answer all parts of the topic.

You need to develop and support your ideas very well. If something is unclear or not well supported in your essay, you can't get 7+.

Your writing should also be very easy to read and all aspects of it are managed properly in order to ensure Coherence and Cohesion. You can't get a band 7+, therefore, with one single error.

There will also be a level of sophistication. If you have a lot of simple linking words like firstly, secondly, thirdly, for instance, for example, you are less likely to receive a 7+.

This can be good for a six-and-under essay, but a great writer is able to combine ideas that do not appear to be noticeable or mechanical.

You must also think about your vocabulary when you plan on scoring IELTS band 7+, as the examiner expects to see a large range of words that are so prominent.

You should use words that are not common in an everyday conversation.

However, it is pointless to learn many high-level words unless you can use them without making mistakes because mistakes are rare for a 7+ candidate

Again, as with the vocabulary, the candidate for a band 7+ makes just a few mistakes in the entire essay, which are only minor, not quite apparent or confusing, errors.

An interesting mix of complex grammar structures will also have to be produced.
