Not Finishing the IELTS Writing Task 1
I've done the ielts test this morning. I had no problems with all the sections, but writing test one: I ran out of time and I didn't finish the first task. Now, are there any chances for me to achieve good marks (5.5 at least) in this section?
Task 2 was ok, I did everything coherently, so I wonder: how much the previous one could penalize my mark?
Thank you in advance
Can you write less than 150 words in IELTS Task 1?
What if one completes the writing task 1 in less than 150 words? (All the points are covered). Does that affect the final band score?
About word count of writing task 1
I've written the task 1 by following this structure by covering all the information.
paragraph 1 - intro by paraphrasing.
paragraph 2 - Overview.
Paragraph 3 - body by using comparisons.
Paragraph 4 - remaining body by using comparisons.
I've written a total of 18 lines with approximately 140 words.
Is it a problem for my assessment. Please help me by answering.
Task 1 and 2 Under Length
1) I didn't cope with 150 words in task 1. Will they will validate it or not?
2) And in task 2 I wrote above 330 words. Could that be a problem in validation?
3) I have used mix of both simple and complex words in both tasks. Will i get band score of 6 and 6+?
Pls clarify my three doubts
Waiting for your response...
