Today, we’ll learn 3 characteristics of your writing that the examiner MUST see in order to consider a high score for your Task 1 essay.

It’s important to note that IELTS Writing Task 1 is a unique animal! It is like no other essay you’ve ever had to write, and it does not mimic anything on other standardized English exams.

Therefore, you need to know what the IELTS examiner is looking for in order to fulfill the criteria for high scores.
