Alex, could you please explain why one would get a 6.5 for 7 + 7 + 7 + 6 ? According to "If the average of the four components ends in .25, the Overall Band Score is rounded up to the next half band, and if it ends in .75, the Overall Band Score is rounded up to the next whole band.", so I thought it means 27 / 4 = 6.75 and should be rounded up to 7. Am I correct ?

The video is good, but there are way toooo much adds during the video! Its so annoying and a waste of time…

Line 1: extra 'however'
Line 2: should it be wastage rather than waste?
Line 4: income(s)
Line 9: thrown
Line 11: involves
Line 14: expanding (could I also write expanding to a global scale)
Line 16: them
Line 18: this is just me asking whether conscience would work instead of consciousness?

Just my doubts!

Also these videos are the best! Thank you for all the tips!!

Primarily focus is on UNDERSTANDING and the TONE of the essay, which is good as it helps alot to write a sensible essay.

Hi Alex, thanks for the video. I love the sample essay except for one question: you used a double negative in the second paragraph (since it is not uncommon to…". Please correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know, we should avoid using a double negative in formal writing.

I have adopted few things from your strategy which are simple and sensible. I have scored a band 7 in writing on 14th Feb 2019 IELTS exam but could not acheived overall score so I am going to appear again. Thanks alot for strategic writing.

Alex, this is the first presentation demo I viewed, I feel like I want to attend more classes as it is quite intriguing and informative.

I have scored a band of 8-9 in the rest of the modules in all of my attempts. However, I have been struggling to score a band of 7 in writing alone which I feel is my weak link, this session gave me self-confidence and I hope I do pass the barrier in my fourth attempt at least.

I think this video makes test takers confused… the 1st reason: "the average family had around $50 per month … now the figure is more like $2,000" in Body 1. Are you sure? It is a kind of statistics, and where is the reference? I mean, how the examiners can accept these numbers?; the 2nd reason: where are the keywords (shops and restaurants)? /// I'm not an instructor, but I think this essay is already off.

Thank you so so much!!!!! I gave IELTS GT 2 months back and got 998 and 6.5 in writing. I re-wrote it coz I needed 7 in writing. Literally, one night before the exam I chanced upon this link and I read this essay. Coincidentally something very similar came up in my writing section. I have scored 7 in writing now. My overall band is 8.5 :). I can't thank you enough
