Writing Format (Task 2) Academic

Task 2 is an essay. (For Task 1, click here)
You should spend around 40 minutes on this task as it is worth 6 bands out of the total 9 bands for writing. (Click here for more info on the marking scheme)
The word limit is around 250-280 words.

In the basic format we can write 4 or 5 paragraphs.

The first paragraph is the Introduction to the question.
The second and third paragraphs are where we make the relevant comparisons, give our opinions, give relevant details and examples.
The fourth or final paragraph is an overview, a.k.a the conclusion.

There are 2 types of essays:
1. Account (Discuss/Describe)
2. Argument (Opinion/ Advantages & Disadvantages)

The basic principle of writing an essay remains the same. However, the wording and pattern of writing changes with every question. There is generally no predefined lines which can be "universally used" in all essays, however, by following a few tricks, the writing topic can be simplified to quite an extent!
