I emailed IELTS official(UK) and the below is what they responded (However, since I didn't take the exam in UK, I'm not sure if the standard is the same worldwide)
Greetings from the Helpdesk and I hope all is well with you.
We recommend that candidates follow the instructions given in the question paper and write their answers in full. However, "T/F/NG" may be used instead of "True/False/Not Given" and "Y/N/NG" may be used instead of "Yes/No/Not Given", as long as candidates make sure it is clear which answer they have chosen.
Candidates can write "Yes/No/Not Given" for questions where it is specified that the answer should be in the format "True/False/Not Given" and vice versa. Candidates will not be penalised for this.
I'm happy to help where I can with any further questions.

15 dec reading passage
READING PASSAGE 2
You should spend about 20 minutes on Questions 14-26, which are based on Reading age 2.below.
Evolutionist Charles Darwin first marvelled at flesh-eating plants in mid-19th century. Today, biologists, using 21st-century tools to study cells and DNA, are beginning to understand how these plants hunt, eat and digest - and how such bizarre adaptations arose in the first place.
A The leaves of the Venus flytrap plant are covered in hairs. When an insect brushes against them, this triggers a tiny electric charge, which travels down tunnels in the leaf and opens up pores in the leafs cell membranes. Water surges from the cells on the inside of the leaf to those on the outside, causing the leaf to rapidly flip ir shape from convex to concave, like a soft contact lens. As the leaves flip, they snap together, trapping the insect in their sharp-toothed jaws.
B The bladderwort has an equally sophisticated way of setting its underwater trap. It pumps water out of tiny bag-like bladders, making a vacuum inside. When small creatures swim past, they bend the hairs on the bladder, causing a flap to open. The low pressure sucks water in, carrying the animal along with it. in one five-hundredth of a second, the door swings shut again. The Drosera sundew, meanwhile, has a thick, sweet liquid oozing from its leaves, which first attracts insects, then holds them fast before the leaves snap shut. Pitcher plants use yet another strategy, growing long tube-shaped leaves to imprison their prey. Raffles’ pitcher plant,from the jungles of Borneo, produces nectar that both lures insects and forms a slick surface on which they can't get a grip. Insects that land on the rim of the pitcher slide on the liquid and tumble in.
C Many carnivorous plants secrete enzymes to penetrate the hard exoskeleton of insects so they can absorb nutrients from inside their prey. But the purple pitcher plant, which Jives in bogs and infertile sandy soils in North America, enlists other organisms to process its food. It is home to an intricate food web of mosquito larvae, midges and bacteria, many of which can survive only in this unique habitat. These animals shred the prey that fall into the pitcher, and the smaller organisms feed on the debris. Finally, the plant absorbs the nutrients released.
D While such plants dearly thrive on being carnivorous, the benefits of eating flesh are not the ones you might expect. Carnivorous animals such as ourselves use the carbon in protein and the fat in meat to build muscles and store energy. Carnivorous plants instead draw nitrogen, phosphorus, and other critical nutrients from their prey in order to build light-harvesting enzymes. Eating animals, in other words, lets carnivorous plants do what all plants do: carry out photosynthesis, that is, grow by harnessing energy directly from the sun.
E Carnivorous plants are, in fact, very inefficient at converting sunlight Into tissue. This is because of all the energy they expend to make the equipment to catch animal's - the enzymes, the pumps, and so on. A pitcher or a flytrap cannot carry out much photosynthesis because, unlike plants with ordinary leaves, they do not have flat solar panels that can grab lots of sunlight. There are, however, some special conditions in which the benefits of being carnivorous do outweigh the costs. The poor soil of bogs, for example, offers little nitrogen and phosphorus, so carnivorous plants enjoy an advantage over plants that obtain these nutrients by more conventional means. Bogs are also flooded with sunshine, so even an inefficient carnivorous plant can photosynthesise enough light to survive.
F Evolution has repeatedly made this trade-off. By comparing the DNA of carnivorous plants with other species, scientists have found that they evolved independently on at least six separate occasions. Some carnivorous plants that took nearly identical turn out to be only distantly related. The two kinds of pitcher plants - the tropical genus Nepenthes and the North American Sarracenia - have, surprisingly, evolved from different ancestors, although both grow deep pitchershaped leaves and employ the same strategy for capturing prey.
G In several cases, scientists can see how complex carnivorous plants evolved from simpler ones. Venus flytraps, for example, share an ancestor with Portuguese sundews, which only catch prey passively, via 'flypaper’ glands on their stems. They share a more recent ancestor with Drosera sundews, which can also curl their leaves over their prey. Venus flytraps appear to have evolved an even more elaborate version of this kind of trap, complete with jaw-like leaves.
H Unfortunately, the adaptations that enable carnivorous plants to thrive in marginal habitats also make them exquisitely sensitive. Agricultural run-off and pollution from power plants are adding extra nitrogen to many bogs in North America. Carnivorous plants are so finely tuned to low levels of nitrogen that this extra fertilizer is overloading their systems, and they eventually burn themselves out and die.
I Humans also.threaten carnivorous plants in other ways, The black market trade in exotic carnivorous plants is so vigorous now that botanists are keeping the location of some rare species a secret. But even if the poaching of carnivorous plants can be halted, they will continue to suffer from other assaults. In the pine savannah of North Carolina, the increasing suppression of fires is allowing other plants to grow too quickly and outcompete the flytraps in their native environment. Good news, perhaps, for flies. But a loss for all who, like Darwin, delight in the sheer inventiveness of evolution.
Complete the notes below.
Choose NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS from the passage for each answer.
Write your answers in boxes 14-18 on your answer sheet.
How a Venus flytrap traps an insect
* insect touches 14 on leaf of plant
*small 15 passes through leaf
*16 in cell membrane open
*outside cells of leaves fill with 17
*leaves change so that they have a 18 shape and snap shut

How would you guys answer this one?
Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 10:13
Most of the youth today prefers to spend their leisure time in shopping centers instead of organised activities like sports or music. Do you think it is a positive or negative development?
Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 10:14
@beachplum I wrote about negative results. The first one is about finances(my example was like "consumable things will cost you when you get old") and the second one is about habits and success in the life( I included the PISA results). But I remember that I accidentally wrote one time habbit instead of habit. I hope grader would miss that :D

I have just recently found out this website, so just wondering if Simon has mentioned how to practice writing by ourselves before? Or anybody knows how to? How do we realise our mistake if we mark the writing ourselves? Also, it would be hard to come up with any improvement because it was your idea right?
