Academic writing task 1

You must use paragraphs to organize your response.

You must include a separate overview paragraph. If you do not do this, you cannot score 6 or higher for the Task Assessment component of your band score.

You can show the examiner that you have created a new paragraph in two ways.

  • Indent the first word of the new paragraph by a few centimeters.
  • Leave a blank line between each paragraph.


​Academic writing task 1 and 2

Try to finish task 1 and task 2 a few minutes earlier so that you can check your work and correct spelling and grammar mistakes.
