Avoiding mistakes in your IELTS Writing answers will bring you closer to getting the IELTS score you want and need.

Learning how to self correct and edit your Writing is an important skill to have.

Think about common mistakes you make in your writing and make a list. When practicing your Writing, look out for these mistakes in your drafts and correct them. Keep doing this every time you write to improve your editing skills.

Here are four more tips to make sure you don’t make avoidable mistakes and decrease your score in Task 1 of IELTS General Training test:

1: Make your letter the right length: you must write at least 150 words
2: Stay on the topic: write an answer that wholly related to the topic of the question, check that you are on track by re-reading what you have written regularly
3: Don’t use notes or bullet points: write a whole, connected piece of text with full sentences and paragraphs
4: Get the style of writing right for your audience: for example write formally to a bank manger, and informally to your friend.

Remember to practice your Writing daily and you will improve your skills and IELTS Writing score.
