Every week we get emails from dozens of students asking us what the secret to getting a high score in IELTS writing is. Our answer is always the same: write an essay that satisfies the IELTS Band Descriptors. Why?
Because they are the only thing the examiner will use to grade your writing!
So whether you are
- a test-taker who has been stuck at a 6.5 for a long time;
- a teacher who wants to grade their students’ essays more accurately;
- or a student who is totally new to IELTS and wants a trustworthy introduction to the IELTS writing Band Descriptors,
everything you need to know is clearly explained in my free 65-page e-book, which is based on my experience as an IELTS writing examiner for IDP 👇👇👇

- what the IELTS examiner considers when they calculate your band
- the most common mistakes made by IELTS test-takers and how you can avoid them
- top-tips that will immediately help you to improve your IELTS writing score
In fact, by the time you finish reading this valuable resource, you will not only know what the examiners are looking for when they mark your essay, but how you can use this knowledge to maximise your score.
