My IELTS Task 2 Writings

I took IELTS Academic in July 2014 and IELTS UKVI Academic in February 2016. I took both of these tests through Australian Education Office. I scored 8.0 overall both of these times. I scored 7.5 in writing in my first attempt and 7.0 in writing in my second attempt.

I took roughly 8 weeks to prepare for IELTS both the times, out of which 6 to 7 weeks were spent on writing.

I have been asked by a lot of people to share my IELTS task 1 and task 2 writings. In this post, I have shared some of my task 2 writings.

The writings that I have shared in this post were some of my better attempts, which I wrote just a few days before I took the test.
