Are you a perfectionist? Trying to be perfect can hurt your IELTS score. How?

Today you’ll learn how IELTS perfectionism stops progress in your writing practice.

In a recent episode, we talked about the phrase, “Perfectionism leads to procrastination which leads to paralysis.”

In your IELTS studies, this can be so true!

With such an enormous goal and project in front of you, it’s difficult to know where to start, and then we simply do nothing.

The fact is, there’s no perfect time for anything! You just have to jump in right away and get moving toward your target.

Jessica likes to say, “Action cures fear!”

The money factor of IELTS also compounds your procrastination.

However, in order to make progress in life, you must invest in yourself and your future.

We recently had a great question from a student:

My biggest IELTS fear is Writing Task 1 and 2. I think I can’t accomplish the second task, even if it were in my first language. I’ve always struggled with my academic writing tasks, because I’m very meticulous and perfectionistic, but not in a good way. I never find the right words, and then, when I finally manage to write the first idea, I immediately want to change it and add more sentences to my paragraph. Now I’m really scared I won’t be able to complete Task 2 on time. I’m really lost.

Firstly, she’s too worried about sentence structures.

In reality, you don’t need tons of variety to get a 7 or higher for grammar. It’s more important to have a few completely correct compound/complex sentences, than to have tons of different types of sentences.

Also, you don’t need too many ideas!

If you add stuff while you write, which aren’t in your brainstorm, you usually tend to go off topic, or repeat yourself. Also, your paragraph becomes disorganized.

The solution starts in your brainstorm. Only write what you need in your brainstorm, reason + example + details, and don’t add anything else while you write.
