Everyone knows that the writing test is the hardest part of the IELTS exam, but how can you find out what your score is and learn how to improve? The best way is to use a writing correction service and have an expert give you professional feedback. However, some people want a free IELTS writing assessment.

I have developed the test below in order to predict your score. That’s right, I believe that if you do this test, I will be able to estimate your band score for IELTS writing task 2.

This quiz contains many questions about the four sections of the IELTS writing marking rubric:

These questions have been carefully designed to test your knowledge of each part of this test. The final score will be a mark out of 100 points. Some questions are quite easy, so they are worth 1 point while others are more difficult, so they are worth 2 or 3 points.

IELTS Writing Score Calculator

The only way to really know someone’s IELTS writing score is for an expert to read their essay/letter, but this quiz has been designed to give a good prediction of what your score would be if you took the real test.
