0:05Skip to 0 minutes and 5 secondsOK. So I think I understand what I have to do in the Writing test.

So how can I write better and improve my score? The writing that I've seen can be improved in three
different ways, I think. Firstly, reading and fully understanding the question to make sure you answer
it, secondly, planning carefully before writing, and thirdly, leaving enough time at the end to check
your writing. What about you Gad? Well, I think it's also good to remember the criteria on which
you're getting assessed on. So there are actually four different criteria that IELTS examiners are
looking for. OK. Makes sense.

0:46Skip to 0 minutes and 46 seconds So how do IELTS examiners assess my writing because there
are no right or wrong answers like in reading or listening tests, right? That's right. And it isn't an easy
task. There are specially trained examiners. And they're trained in how to assess your writing based
on four different criteria, four different elements, which as Gad said - these are called criteria. The
first of these is task achievement, for Writing Task 1 or task response, for Writing Task 2. And that
looks at how well you've answered the question. And the second criteria is what we call coherence
and cohesion. And that looks at how well you communicate your ideas and how well your ideas are
connected together.

vocabulary, and then grammatical range and accuracy. When I write, I worry a lot about using
correct grammar. But actually, there are a lot of other things I need to think about. Yes. So as Pauline
has mentioned, there are all these different criteria. So you just want to make sure you are
responding to the task. And then perhaps one other way is to just make sure you check your work so
that if you're worried about grammar you're able to look at those things.

2:10Skip to 2 minutes and 10 seconds Keep in mind too, it's not just about getting grammar
correctly, but using a variety of different grammatical structures because if you just say I woke up, I
brush my teeth, I went out - Yes. - it doesn't sound very good, doesn't it? No. So the same thing with
writing in IELTS. Where I can find more about this? Well, if you look at the bottom of the page, you
can find some more information about writing assessment. And in the next few steps, you're going
to look at how the assessment is carried out, and you're going to look at some writing samples so
that you can see how the different criteria are applied by the examiner in the test. OK. That's great.
