IELTS Writing has two tasks, which you'll see in both the academic and general training versions of the exam. The first, IELTS Writing Task 1, involves writing a summary of a visual or process (for the academic test) or writing a letter (for the general test). In IELTS Writing Task 2, you'll write a complete essay. You'll be tested on how well your ideas flow together, your vocabulary and grammar, and if you fulfilled all the IELTS Writing requirements. Learn more about this section of the exam, including IELTS Writing samples and tips.
