    From what I researched, and what I did in my test, the essay part is all about splitting it up into sensible sections for the discussion. This might help as it goes through the structure - I found it fairly okay to deal with once I knew how to present it:

    I also think using academic language and good descriptive text is key as well - so going beyond normal day to day words to show you have a wider grasp of the language.

     

    ​Best of luck!

    I've got some tips on a post I did a while back on our website:

    I really really recommend the cambridge book (at the end of the post) as well its really good and has some marked examples as well for you - I've done a bit of IELTS tutoring since doing the test myself both here and in the UK and all my students have done really well, so think I've got a handle on it now :D

     

     

    If you want me to 'mark' something for you and give some feedback I'd be more than happy if you want, just let me know :)
