How is the IELTS Writing Exam Score Calculated?

 

 

 

 

There are two tasks to complete in the IELTS Writing Exam.

Academic Stream

Task 1:  A 150-word Report analysing a graph, chart or diagram; and

Task 2: A 250-word Essay on a given topic, situation or problem.

General Training Stream

Task 1:  A 150-word letter on a given situation or problem; and

Task 2: A 250-word Essay on a given topic, situation or problem.

Assessment of the IELTS Writing Exam

Each task is assessed independently by the examiner, however, they are not of equal weighting.

  • Task 1 is worth approximately 1/3 of the overall IELTS Writing Exam Score; and
  • Task 2 is worth approximately 2/3 of the overall IELTS Writing Exam Score.

Therefore, candidates should allocate their Writing Exam time accordingly:

  • 20 minutes on Task 1; and
  • 40 minutes on Task 2.

We attach below a table which provides an indication of what overall Band Score you will achieve in the IELTS exam depending on the score you receive in each task in the IELTS Writing Exam.

As you can see from the table, it is important that you complete both tasks in order to score well in the IELTS Writing Exam.
