Timing and preparation in IELTS Writing
One of the biggest concerns for people doing the IELTS exam, particularly in the writing section, is time management.
Many candidates who are doing IELTS 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. Then there is writing task 1 which should only take 20 minutes. That’s 1 hour in total for the writing section. It is easy to feel pressure in this situation.
