Our aim is for all our children as they move through school to become increasingly aware of the own strengths as learners and to work on those areas in which they are not so strong. It is our intention that by the time children go on to secondary that each of them not only knows how they have developed across the 10 learning principles but also that they have collected evidence of themselves demonstrating these principles during their time at Watercliffe Meadow. All the latest educational research shows that children who know how to be a ‘good learner’, and can apply this knowledge, are successful. We feel strongly that if we equip our children with this ‘Passport for Learning’ then we are giving them the best life chances and the ability to really make a difference in the world.
Thanks a lot for all the valuable info posted in the site.

If you don’t have paragraphs, you will get band 5 for Coherence and Cohesion, which is 25% of your marks in task 2 (this also applies to task 1). You MUST use logical paragraphs and use linking devices well to get a high score. In fact, you must have done very well in task 1 and also in the other aspects of writing task 2 to have got band 7 overall. I can’t say if it will certainly raise your score as it will all depend on your performance on the day. The fact that you don’t seem to be aware of what the examiner is looking for and how your writing is scored suggests that you are taking risks for the writing component of the test.

Hello Liz, I regularly follow your posts and your lessons and its very helpful. I have given IELTS couple of times and have scored an overall band of 7.5 every time. But my writing doesn’t reach 7. I am only able to score 6.5. Will be great if you or anyone can help me review my essay and give some feedback on how can I improve my writing skills.

How many paragraphs in an IELTS Writing Task 2 Essay
Hi Liz, I did my exam tod2ay but I am worried. For my essay paragraphs, I made sure the paragraphs ended at the middle of the line.
However I did not indent or leave a blank space. It’s very obvious that it’s a different paragraph but no space and indentation. Would I be penalised for this? Should I forget it and just write another ielts?
Paragraphs are marked by the examiner in IELTS writing task 2
Thanks for the reply.
Took my IELTS few days ago. The Speaking section didn’t go well, I could speak for around 30 sec only for the cue card, apart from that the rest was ok. The LRW was good enough.
Your blog has been really helpful. For the writing task 2, the task was to discuss two views, and that was very similar to the model essay posted by you under the agree /disagree model answer.
How much will the cue card task affect my speaking scores?
