    So here’s the idea.

    Go ahead and search through if you have been preparing for the IELTS for a while, it’s possible, it’s probable you have some essays written already.

    Choose your best one or choose one that you would like to possibly get some feedback on, and all you need to do is copy and paste it in the comments below this video and you’re entered.

    That’s all you need to do.

    If you don’t have an essay, or if you’d like to write a new one, you can go if you look at the link at the bottom in the text box there, and you can click on that link and go to a sample question that you can write about.
