All are important but in recent exam diagram or map questions are becoming popular.With this type of question , one of the difficulty is getting word limit of 150 words because most of us do not know how to show similarity , difference or unchanged.
So, i would go to questions no 5 & 6.
sir, please start from Cam 14 , some questions of this type are
1) Test 3 : The diagram below shows how electricity is generated in a hydroelectric power station. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
2) The plans below show a public park when it first opened in 1920 and the same park today.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Sir, I also request you to do latest IELTS speaking and writing questions.

I vote for table, especially those with lots of numbers.

Table chat seems more difficult which contain lots of information so i refer to solve them out for us

I vote for number 5 and 6. thank you very much!

Hi Simon
Hope you had a great time on your trip!
I have a hard time writing Diagrams/maps that compare things.



Hi Simon,

First of all, thank you for everything that you do for people.

I think the most difficult ones are process diagrams and especially, maps.

Hi Simon:

i am recently wondering a interesting question about tenses: is 'will be', 'need to be', or 'should be' used in flow chart writings?

i am so glad to waiting for your reply! thanks !

I do not see any of the phrases you have mentioned cropping up in Simon's model answers.





I vote for table

Diagram is little bit difficult for me

process, definitely

Hi, I vote for mix of two charts like table and pie chart.

In my opinion; Its some bar chảt or line graph including 4,5 collumn, line.

Hello, participants and our loved Simon. I will sit the test for the fourth time the upcoming August 24th. I realized that I spend a lot of precious time analyzing the title of the visual and then more figuring out how to start writing. Please, Mr. Simon could you please give some ideas on how can we manage our time to do the above in 5 mnts? I already completed the the process and the map of Cambridge 14. I just followed the suggestions many mentors said: list the steps and highlight how begin and how end the process. As for the map, quite the same, that is describe a little bit the old picture in the BP1 and BP2 to describe the new or future plan making relevant comparisons.

number 5 and 6
