Upgrading to a Band 8 IELTS Essay
Updated: Feb 10
An IELTS essay is scored using 4 criteria:
1. Task Response 2. Coherence and Cohesion 3. Lexical Resource 4. Grammatical Range and Accuracy
Many test applicants are not clear about what they should do to score a 7 or 8 Band score in their essay
The flow and the content of the essay should be succinct as to let the ideas flow consistently and there being no need for the examiner to re read any part of the paragraphs.
This is apart from the basic criterion of forming paragraphs, structuring the essay etc.
