Thanks to our generous subscriber TS from Sri Lanka, today we are sharing the writing questions she remembered from a recent IELTS exam.
Preparation Tip: Make sure to write your own essay and report under timed conditions, spending no more than an hour in total on both Writing Task 1 and Task 2. Simulating real exam conditions will help you get better at time management and perform well under pressure. Happy studying!
Writing task 1 (a report)
The chart below gives information about European people of different age groups who went to the gym once a month or more, between 1990 and 2010.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
* Note: this isn’t the actual chart given in the test, it was recreated for the purpose of demonstration.
Writing task 2 (an essay)
Some people believe that hard work and determination are the main requirements to become successful in life, while others say there are other factors that lead to success.
Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
