IELTS Academic Writing Task 2 Vs. IELTS General Writing Task 2 - what are the differences ?

Most of the General IELTS test takers used ask this question in the classes . Main difference between the AC-Writing task and GT-Writing task is the mode of Task 1 of the both exams .

While you need to think about various types of charts,presented data and technical terms for them to describe the flow of information  given in the Academic Task 1, just  worry about  a handful of formal and informal letter types for  General Module Task 1.

in a nutshell ,Task 1 is  bit more different among the both modules .But task 2 is almost same for both modules .

IELTS Academic writing task 1 and General writing task 1, both require you to spend 40 minutes,and have 250 words . Moreover topics are almost same and both papers are assessed by the same examiners .

When you Google for IELTS writing task 2 (Academic or General) you get plenty of titles treat both lists equal , you may follow all the good tips there (only from authentic sites).

Both writing Task 2 s  have the same marking criteria

1) Task achievement [25%]
2)Coherence and cohesion (flow )[25%]
3)Grammatical accuracy[25%]
4)Lexical resources (High quality vocabulary and phrases )[25%]

Thus ,I would say , all GT test takers dont take the writing task 2 very light . It is heavy as AC module .

Good luck in your exams
