    IELTS Essays, can I ask for assessment?

    Hi there,

    I'm a new member in the forum. I've just registered in order to improve my english (obviously). The thing is that as I read the rules, one of them is not to ask for corrections of assigments or sth like that, so I want to know if posting my essay here to get an assessment would be against de rules.


    btw, I'm taking the IELTS test in 2 weeks and I'm not pretty sure of what to expect from it. I've already taken the FCE by the University of Cambridge, getting a grade A as score. Are essays very different between both kind of exams? I mean, I know I'm supossed to write over 250 words (not a problem), but can the style resemble to cambridge?? like using the same structure, using the same connectors...


    thanks in advance!

    PS: It's not homework, I'm preparing for the IELTS exam on my own and I need some help, I don't know how prepared I am and I would like a qualified IELTS teacher to assess my essay and tell me what score do I get.

    I am not certain what you mean by "assessment" but I suspect you want us to help you with your homework. (I could be wrong.)

    Re: IELTS Essays, can I ask for assessment?

    Hi, thanks for the corrections.


    It's not really homework because I don't even have a teacher. I'm preparing the test on my own and I just need a little reassurance that I'm doing it right. If there's some IELTS professor here maybe they could tell me about what brand would I get with my essays, just that.

    I need to score 7 in each part of the examn. I usually get between 8 and 8.5 in both listening and reading, but there's no way for me to know what score would I get in the writing section. I would like to go to an academy and ask my teacher, but there's no academies that prepare the IELTS examn in my city, just Cambridge and Trinity academies. :(



    Thank you anyway!

    You can post things in the Writing section, and any language questions in Ask a Teacher.

    PS You may be asked about homework as it's a constant problem with people posting assignments, so maybe mentioning that you are self-studying for IELTS would help. Thanks.
