I'm always worrying about my writting task2(academic).
A student who got a band 7.5 told me that it is important to show your opinion both at begining and the end.
I'm little bit confused,because sometimes showing my opinion tiwce makes my eassy too long(over 300words),and when I read my eassy again,I thought I was only repeat the sentence.(In fact,it is rather nonsense in my native language writting)
Is it okay that I only give my opinion once at the end of the eassy?
For example，"Should university accept equal numbers of male and female student in every subject",I'd simply say I don't think it make sense at 1st paragraph,and give my detailed opinion at the end of the eassy.
Or do you think the way that the student told me is better?

Just as simon mentioned before, it is better for you to show your ideas at the first paragraph. If not, the examer would not know which sides you stand.
This is my viewpoint for reference!

Hi simon, i'm very sad because i didn't get the score that i need to university application...what can i do? Do you think that one month of study is enough to apply the IElTS again?

To quote Simon "examiners do not like surprises". Your first paragraph tells the reader (in this case the examiner) what you will be writing about.
If you are asked for opinion, give it.
Support your opinion in the body paragraphs then, quickly paraphrase your introduction for the conclusion.

I'm afraid I no longer have time to answer everyone's questions individually. However, I do still read them all, and I try to answer some questions in a lesson once a week (usually Saturdays).
