    My guess is you have some more immediate problems to worry about. Correct capitalization and spacing will certainly help you improve your writing scores.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: writing problems

    Your profile shows that you are currently in the UK. Look at all the writing around you - newspapers, magazines, books etc. You will see correctly written English all around you. As charliedeut said, you need to concentrate on capitalisation and spacing before you worry about anything else. If you have been incorrectly using capital letters and spacing in your IELTS tests in the past, you will have lost many marks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
