- Achinth Babu
- Achinth Babu"I hardly had 9 classes in hand to prepare for my IELTS exam, and I did not expect the classes to be that interactive. My diagnostic tests resulted in a 32/40 in Reading and 36/40 in Listening. With the subsequent tests during the coaching and faculty’s guidance on how to approach my point of errors, I achieved a perfect score in the actual test. Not only did I exceed the expected score of 8.5 band, but also got the exact inputs I was looking for. Thank you Manya - The Princeton Review!".
Understand the question, make an outline, organise ideas, use recommended structure to write, focus on language aspect (grammar) and proofread.
For ideas read different questions and brainstorm ideas or read writing sample answers. Another method is to find relevant information on a few question types.

You must write more than 150 words for task 1 and 250 words for task 2.
You will lose scores in the task response and task achievement sections.
