**IS WRITING TASK 2 MORE**

**IMPORTANT THAN WRITING TASK 1?**

In fact, it is very important to do well on both tasks, but your band score is based MORE on writing task 2 than on writing task 1.

Writing task 1 is worth 1/3 of your total mark and writing task 2 is worth 2/3 of the total.

**Let's do the MATH**

**CASE 1**

Imagine that you get the following scores:

Writing task 1 = 7

Writing task 2 = 4

In this case, the total score is:

7 X 1/3 + 4 X 2/3

= 7/3 + 8/3

=15/3

=5

**CASE 2**

Imagine that you get the following scores:

Writing task 1 = 4

Writing task 2 = 7

In this case, the total score is:

4 X 1/3 + 7 X 2/3

= 4/3 + 14/3

=18/3

= 6

Therefore, it is more important to do well on writing task 2 than on task 1. However, the BEST is to get high scores on both.

WHAT does this tell you about the WRITING EXAM???

It is VERY IMPORTANT to FINISH BOTH WRITING TASK 1 and TASK 2 on time.

Therefore to get a HIGH SCORE on the IELTS EXAM, it is very important to have good skills in TIME MANAGEMENT.
