(Model essay) A successful student shares his strategy for achieving band 8 in the written portion of his exam! Posted on March 14, 2012 by Ryan - 15 Comments I received an encouraging email this past week from an IELTS test taker who managed to score 8 in his writing. (For those interested, he shares the story in detail here .) Although he cites a number of things that he feels allowed him to score well, he stresses that ‘cohesive writing’ is a very key skill (and I would totally agree) . So in this model essay I’m highlighting the portions that help link the composition’s parts at the sentence, paragraph and essay level and hope you take note. Please notice how cohesive devices can be found in all sentences following our opening background sentence. Thus, every sentence in the essay links in some manner to information presented before it. The following essay question was seen in early 2012 in Guang Zhou, China.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
