Timing and preparation in IELTS Writing
One of the biggest concerns for people doing the IELTS exam, particularly the writing section, is timing.
Many candidates who do the exam get to the writing section and start stressing out because their time management becomes an issue. You only have around 40 minutes to write a 250 word essay, so straight away this tends to create anxiety, and then there is writing task 1 which should only take 20 minutes. That’s 1 hour in total.
