Why this Band 7.0 essay is really band 5.0..

Just made this video in response to a posting in the IELTS9.0 free preparation FB group…in it, someone had posted an essay and other group members had claimed this was a Band 7.0. The author was delighted naturally, however, when I read it, it was obvious that the essay was at most a 5.0. And in this video I will explain why that is…

However, the wider point I wanted to make is the danger of these groups on FB. People who have no idea of what they are talking about are making false claims and giving people false hope….I have said this time and time again, if you want to get a good score in IELTS, you first need to have your writings professionally assessed. That means you have to pay someone…I know a lot of you think you can get everything for free, but that is not the case.

You have to send your writings and get them correctly assessed then you will know exactly what you need to do to improve. If you do things on the cheap, you will fail..simple as that…so, don’t believe the opinions of randoms in online groups, go to someone you can trust and get them to assess your writing. You will have to pay, but it is an investment in your future…so think of it in that way.

Anyway, watch the video, and if you have any qs, you can write to me at kevin@prepareielts.com
