Focus on Task Achievement(GT)

Your task achievement on GT comprises of some pre-defined elements.

  1. Word Count
  2. Clear Purpose
  3. Content Addressed
  4. Style and tone

Although writing a short letter may seem quite simple, the test requires you to think very carefully about the recipient (the person reading the letter) the content (the ideas and details you create), the purpose and style of the writing meeting the minimum word count you are instructed(150 words.)

If you can get these four things right, you answered the task fully, you should get a high score, even if there are some mistakes in your English. On the other hand, if the IELTS examiner thinks you are confused about these elements, you will get a low score – even if your English is quite good.
