How to write an effective IELTS conclusion

A guide to writing a good conclusion for an IELTS essay.

This lesson will show you all about writing a good conclusion. The conclusion is very important in the essay, if you do not write one you will leave a weak impression on the examiner and you will lose a whole band score in task response.

Conclusion are pretty easy to write. You are just rephrasing your main points and restating your opinion. One way to do this is to paraphrase your thesis statement again. No new information should be added to the conclusion, and it must be concise and to the point. Do not just copy your introduction word for word either, do not repeat whole sentences or it will lower your score.

IELTS Advantage Disadvantage Essays

3 Types of Advantage Disadvantage Essays

Not only are there 5 types of essay questions in academic IELTS but there are 3 types of Advantage Disadvantage essays, here are some examples below and ideas on how to approach them.

Before we go further let me make something clear. IELTS tasks will ask in an advantage disadvantage essay something like:

  • Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of this?

Notice the plural form here, advantages and disadvantages. Many students (and IELTS teachers) think they have to write more than one advantage and disadvantage. Yes, you can certainly do this but you can also make it much simpler by writing about one advantage and one disadvantage. I have heard from examiners that this is ok as long as you are able to support and fully exaplin your ideas. With this approach you can still write over 250 words.
