As you probably know, Andrew is the new IELTS professional I hired to correct your essays. Not only will he help you improve your work by returning your essays within 24h, he’ll also offer you some valuable feedback to help you pass the exam.
In this tutorial Andrew and myself both review a Band 9 essay that an EX-IELTS examiner wrote. This examiner placed her comments next to the essay. These comments will help you understand what the examiner is looking for, what scores points and how to structure the essay.
By listening to this podcast you will get an insight into the examiner’s mind that will help you when you start writing your essays. This tutorial mainly focuses on IELTS Writing Task 2, if you are looking for sample Band 9 IELTS Academic Task 1 reports and questions, have a look here. By the way, here is an immensely valuable site for getting the right type of vocabulary for the exam, and text book examples on how to describe graphs.
