Hi Sam,

It's always difficult to say for sure if someone should get a remark.

However it's not uncommon for native speakers to actually do worse than they thought in the writing.

There are certain things that you should and should not do in the Task 1 and 2. If you end up doing something that you shouldn't it could pull your score down even if your grammar is perfect.

That's why it's important to look at tips and strategies before the test, however good you are at English.

I can't explain it all here. Did you go through websites such as this one before the test to check what you should do in the essay and graph / letter?

If not, go through the lessons and model essays and double check you are doing everything as you should.
