The IELTS Writing test is more than just an English composition assessment. It is essentially a time management exam. Test takers must wisely use the given one hour to accomplish two tasks, which vary depending on their chosen format.

The first task requires at least 150 words in 20 minutes while the second item requires at least 250 words in 40 minutes.
