There are different questions which may occur in the first task of the IELTS writing test.

They include:

  1. graphs, charts, and tables
  2. processes
  3. maps

You are allotted 20 minutes to write a report of at least 150 words. Marks are not taken off for exceeding this limit. However, it is advisable not to write much more as it will definitely cut down on your review time.

What constitutes a word? words are basically everything you write: nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs as well as prepositions are all words. Numbers are even counted.


Graphs, charts, and tables

  • Pie charts

A pie chart (or a circle graph) is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating proportions.


  • Bar graphs

A bar graph or bar chart is a chart with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they present. It can be plotted vertically or horizontally.


  • Line graphs

A line graph or line chart is a type of graph, which displays information as a series of data points connected by straight line segments.


  • Tables

A table is a means of arranging data in rows and columns



A process is a series of events, one taking place after the other. Therefore, to connect your stages, you should use ‘time connectors’.



Generally there are two types of maps in the IELTS test.

  • First, they may give us two maps of the same place but in different times (e.g 1940, 2010).
  • Second, they give us one single map and ask us to describe two locations on them or even compare them.
