IELTS Academic Writing Task is made up of two tasks, Writing Task 1 and Writing Task 2. The questions in the Academic Writing test are different to those in the General training writing test.

In Academic Writing Task 1, you’ll be shown a visual representation of information; a graph, table, map or illustration, and you will be asked to epitomize, describe or explain the information you see. Make sure you organize your response into three main points, the preface/explanation, an overview, and the main features that are easily visible like the numbers in the illustration.

In Academic Writing Task 2, you’ll be presented with a point of view, argument, or problem wherein you need to describe in an essay format. The motifs can range from the terrain to immigration, culture, and indeed technology. You might be asked to, agree or differ with a point of view or argument, bandy two opposing views, chronicle the advantages or disadvantages of content, or explain a given problem or the cause of a problem and offer a result.

In IELTS Academic Writing Task 1,

you will be presented with a chart, map/visual description, a visual way to represent information. The visuals can either be anyone from the below-mentioned kinds or can also be clubbed. These different types of charts/processes are mentioned below: 








You’ll also be given instructions so summarise the information you see by opting for and reporting the main features visible, making comparisons wherever applicable.  You’ll need to do an information transfer task –the visual information you’re been presented with requires to be presented in the form of text.

To complete the task successfully, you will need to: 

  • Write an preface/introduction 
  • Write an overview (a summary of what you see) 
  • Present the crucial features with numbers(data) 

You will need to write a minimum of 150 words or further and answers must be written in full, no mention of ideas in points or notes.  


In Task 2 of the Academic Writing test, you are asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, an argument, or a problem. Essays should be written in an academic or semi-formal style. Motifs are about applicable issues and will concentrate on a particular aspect of the topic. To illustrate, if the content is about computers, the focus will be on a particular aspect rather than writing about computers in general.   

The task instructions give you information about the question telling you how to mention the content in detail in your essay.   You may be asked to submit figure and present results, justify an opinion or estimate substantiation and ideas. It’s important that you complete the task precisely using appropriate ideas and illustrations to support your position. Your ideas should be organized easily, using paragraphs for each idea. You must write a minimum of 250 words or more. 

You’re assessed on your capability to follow English essay-writing conventions to organize and link information in a coherent way using language correctly and clearly to express your ideas and opinions.

  • Let us first understand the frequently asked questions with regard to IELTS Academy Writing Task:-

  • Frequently I’ve come across the question wherein the candidates are on a cross road whether to select the computer-based IELTS or the pen-paper-based IELTS:

If you choose to complete your IELTS test on a computer, you will do the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts of the test using a computer. The IELTS Speaking test remains the same, with a face-to-face interview with an examiner. The Speaking test will be completed either just before, or just after the Reading, Listening, and Writing tests.

If you take IELTS on paper, you will complete the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts on paper. The Speaking test is completed in a face-to-face interview with an IELTS examiner, and this can be done one week before or after your test date. In the IELTS on the paper test, the Writing, Reading, and Listening tests are all completed on the same day with no breaks between each test.

Speaking tests for both paper and computer  are  face-to-face with an examiner. This is the best way  to measure  your  speaking skills  as it takes a more  realistic  approach: a one-on-one conversation.

The test format, question types, time allocated to each test part, and content is the same for both IELTS on computer and IELTS on the paper test. The only difference is in your test day experience. You can choose to take IELTS on a computer or paper for both the General Training and Academic tests depending on your comfort level.




  • The order in which you will have your IELTS writing test:

If you take the computer-based IELTS test, you will do the tests in the following order on the same day: Listening, Reading and Writing, with the Speaking test before or after this test session.


If you take pen-paper-based IELTS, you will do the tests in the following order: Writing, Reading and Listening. Depending on the test center, the Speaking test can be done on the same day, or up to 7 days either before or after the test date.

  • The word limits and does writing more than the limit give more marks:

The minimal word limit for both task 1 & 2 is important. You ought to write at least 150 words (which are more than 150 words) for Writing Task 1 and at least 250 words (which are more than 250 words) for Writing Task 2.


If you do not fulfill the minimum word criteria, it will indicate you have fewer ideas and may lose marks. However, if you write much more, this does not mean you will gain marks. It is more important that you use correct English, appropriate grammar, and a wide range of vocabulary and sentence structures.
Remember that Writing Task 2 is worth twice as many marks as Task 1. You can improve your Writing band score by practicing.
