IELTS Writing Task 2: extend, develop, progress...

You'll see these three words in the band descriptors for writing task 2. If you want a high score, you need to extend and develop your ideas, and your writing should progress from one sentence to the next.

How do you achieve this?

My tip is to make sure that each sentence says something new. The new information could be a reason, an example, a consequence, an alternative, a prediction...

It's easy to make the mistake of repeating the same idea in slightly different ways. Don't do this. Don't feel that you need to rephrase a point that you've already made. Instead, make your point and then extend or develop it.
