IELTS Writing Answer Sheet

Advertisements

There are two types of writing tests that can be given. The first one is the paper-based IELTS test and the second one is the computer-delivered IELTS test. The test taker takes the paper-based test on the sheet given by the examiner. Thus, it is advisable to take the practice test based sample answer sheets that are available online. You can download the answer sheets for each section and practice your IELTS test in the answer sheets itself so that you do not have to struggle while actually taking the IELTS test. In this article, we will look into the IELTS answer sheets in which the candidates have to write their answers of Task 1 as well as Task 2.

Importance of using Answer sheets while practicing

The test taker should use the answer sheet in the manner that the examiner wants him/her to use it or else there is a chance of missing the information as well as the danger of writing the correct information in the wrong places. This may, in turn, result in wastage of the whole answer sheet. Apart from this, if you know where to write the exact information, you will get some extra time to review the information. So let us examine the importance of practicing for IELTS examination on the answer sheet.

  • The importance of practicing the IELTS exam on the answer sheet is that you will know how many words can fit into a single answer sheet so that you do not have to sit and count the words. By this, you will also be able to save time in the actual IELTS exam.
  • If one answer sheet is not enough you can take a print of another answer sheet and check for the word count. So you will get an idea of the word count while practicing itself.
  • By knowing this information in advance, you can concentrate more on the content, grammar, and vocabulary instead of getting distracted by the word count while writing the answers.
  • While practicing on the answer sheet you will also concentrate on your handwriting, you will not exceed the lines that are given which makes your handwriting look neat.

Different sections of the Answer Sheet

The answer sheet in which you are going to write your IELTS answers has different sections. They are explained below:

  • In the first section, the test takers have to fill up the general information such as the name of the candidate, number and exam centre number which is available in the slip given to you during the registration.
  • The candidate must enter the name exactly as it is entered in the given registration slip.
  • The candidate is asked to fill their name using block letters. They are also asked to tick the correct module which they are going to attempt, whether it is Academic or General training module.
  • You should also enter the test date. Put 0 in the first box if the date/month is less than 10.
  • In the lower right-hand corner, there is one more field in the same section where you are asked to mention the current sheet number as well as the total number of sheets used.
  • You do not have to fill it at the beginning itself because you do not know how many extra sheets you are going to use.
  • You can fill this field once you are done with the IELTS test and before submitting it to the examiner.
  • In the second section, you need to write your task or the explanation for the topic given.
  • There will be a warning written which says ‘do not write after this line’ where you have to stop writing on the first page and skip to the second page.
  • It is not compulsory to use these answer sheets while practicing, but if you use these sheets, you will be benefitted. You will avoid making mistakes and also you can save some time.

FAQs

Can I write where ” do not write below this line” is given?

No. It is not permissible. You should write only in the space alloted.

Why should I waste time by practising on the answer sheet?

If you don’t spend time practising now, you may be wasting time in the exam, when you can actually use it for priority tasks. You may be at a loss to know where to write a particular information.

What are the advantages of practising in the answer sheet?

You will get to know how many lines fit into a single answer sheet so that you do not have to sit and count the words in the actual exam. You will know when you have reached the expected word count in the actual exam.

Can I use both sides of a page in the answer sheet?

Yes. You can write on both sides of the pages in the given answer sheet.

Can I leave empty lines between paragraphs, because I think it will be more readable?

It will be readable otherwise too. By leaving empty lines, you will leave the examiner guessing what the empty lines are for!
