I often meet students who have no problem getting band 7 for listening, reading and speaking, but they get a lower score in the writing test. Why is this?
These seem to be the main reasons:
- They start writing without stopping to think first.
- Their essays lack organisation because they didn't do a plan.
- They don't develop their ideas in enough detail or depth.
The solution is to spend more time planning and organising your ideas before you start writing. Think and plan before you write!
