1 How to Get a Band 8.0 in IELTS Writing Task 2 Tips, Strategies and Band 9.0 Sample Golden rules: Use the question to help you organize your answer. Check the general topic of the question, usually, a problem, a point of view or a statement with two opposing views. Check how many parts there are to the question. Make a brief plan. Use the focus points in the question. Plan to write about four/five paragraphs. Keep this writing structure in mind: Introduction: The introduction should tell the examiner what the rest of the essay is about and also answer the question directly. This tells the examiner that you know what you are doing straight away and helps you write your main body paragraphs. Supporting body paragraphs: This is where you give the examiner more detail. You do this by stating your main points and supporting these with explanations and relevant examples. Conclusion: Here your provide a summary of what you have already said in the rest of the essay. Reminder: Make very brief notes about what you are going to write for each paragraph- one idea for each paragraph is enough. Aim to write around 270 words. Work out how many lines 250 words are in your handwriting, e.g. If you write about ten words per line, then you will need to produce at least 25 lines. Spend no more than five minutes analyzing the question and planning.

Band 8.5 Sample Essay In the last few decades, vegetarianism has entered the mainstream of many societies, most notably in western countries. It is suggested by those who side with vegetarians that meat is not a necessary element in a healthy diet and that going vegan is the way to go in modern times. Personally, I reckon that this view has flaws. In the first place, non-vegetarian diets are considerably higher in total intake of protein, which is highly beneficial for the body. As scientists show, protein can not only improve the overall health and fitness but also can contribute to reinforcing the immune system. As vegetarian diets hardly meet daily protein requirements, those who follow are generally more vulnerable to fatigue even when doing physically undemanding tasks or they can be more susceptible to common diseases such as flu or cold. In the second place, meat is also a fertile source of many nutrients such as iron or zinc. It is already recognized that while iron helps in producing tissues inside the body, zinc is indispensable in helping transporting oxygen to different parts of the body, thus allowing the proper functioning of all body organs. Besides, when consuming meat, the body will also be

    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.
