Don't give up on getting an IELTS writing band 7

Don't give up climbing!

Don't give up climbing!

Hey Guys!

I've just got back my IELTS result recently. It wasn't the result that I want but I'm really happy with it.


R - 8.0 (Roughly the same as the previous ones)

L - 7.5 (I've scored 9.0 before as long as it's pass 7.0 I'm happy)

W - 6.5 (It's always been 6.5 after my first IELTS which I've got band 7.0 but my result is expired, I know..it sucks)

S - 8.0 (Roughly the same)

I was quite frustrated each time when I got my result back only to find that my writing was still stuck at 6.5. I know my writing skill isn't that bad.

However, I found out the reason why after going through the essay writing lessons on this website. It was really what I was looking for.

The types of essay, scoring, and writing techniques just to name a few, they are all very useful.

Well, I'm sitting for another IELTS test this coming Saturday and I have confidence to say that I can certainly get all band 7.0 this time!

Wait for my good news! Thanks for sparing some time to read this.

PS Just a little encouragement for you guys who are trying out there! Don't give up! Believe in yourself, that's what I'm doing currently. Keep on practicing and you'll get there one day.

That's all from me :)

Regards,
J

Getting a Writing Band 7
by: IELTS buddy

Hi Miss J,

Thanks for your comments on trying to get a writing band 7, and I'm glad to hear that this site has been useful to you.

As is your case, a lot of people do get stuck at band 6.5 and want to give up.

I explain here in this lesson a bit more about getting an IELTS Band 7 and why it is difficult to get past 6.5.

This is often because of grammar / vocabulary errors.

You need most of your sentences to be grammatically correct to get over a band 7 for grammar / vocabulary, and that is quite a difficult task for many students.

Most will make fairly regular small errors which is enough to bring the score down.

Anyway, good luck with the test this week and it would be great if you could report back here to say how you found the test and to let people know what score you got when you receive your result.

Stuck at 6.5 bands in Writing Module
by: Neel

Dear All,

First of all thank you so much for the invaluable comments being put on website which are really full of guidance!!!

My name is Neel and from India. I started giving IELTS from July,2015 and till date, I have attempted 5 times. In each attempt, I have got overall 7.0 bands, but 6.5 in writing module! From last 2 months, I have been practicing through IELTS BUDDY website and i got impressed with the very organised information needed to tackle the exam.

I have bought Writing task-2 book and it is helping me a lot. I am about to finish the book having gone through 9 chapters. It gives me immense pleasure to let you know that I have gained so many tactics from this book in order to efficiently and effectively answer task-2 question. I am really confident this time that I am going to get 7.0 band in writing module with 7.0 in each other section that I need.

I got so many responses that I should give up now giving additional attempt, but I have never given up and will continue to follow this trend till I get 7.0 in each. My next attempt is on 24th September,2016. I will do let you know my report, but need blessings from you all that this time I crack this exam with flying colors!!!

IELTS Buddy, you have been fascinating friend in this journey. Thank you for making Task-2 book in a very simple understandable, effective and easy-to-deploy manner. Truly appreciate the efforts put in by your team. Royal salute to them!!!

That's it from my side. I will be in touch with this site and you all.

Keep trying
by: Onyx

Hi,

I took the ielts exam 4x and writing was always the problem. 1st time 6.5, again 6.5, the third one, 6.0 and finally 7.0. Am glad I kept trying. Ielts buddy's sample essays were an excellent marking scheme for both Task 1 and 2. Keep practicing essays, keep at it and one day 6.5 will be in the past, and 7.0 will appear in ur test form.

Thank you ielts buddy. Keep doing what you do.
