What’s more important in grammar, range or accuracy?

Let’s take a look at grammatical range and accuracy in writing.

Many IELTS test takers think that they need to have a wide range of grammar for a high score in grammatical range and accuracy in the writing section. This is only partly true. If you have a wide range of grammar but it is not accurate then it will not score very high.
