Your writing assessments are timed as you would expect in the exam and once submitted, you will receive your feedback within 48 hours.
Our feedback is very detailed; we give you overall comments and we use a correction code to show you where the specific errors are in your writing. We also give you an indication of how well you did on a range of criteria that match the criteria of the test. For IELTS you will get your equivalent test score (i.e. a band score from 1-9).
Our teachers feel strongly that the correction code should be used to show you errors without giving you the answers - it is a good learning process for you to try to work them out yourself! You can always book a tutorial with a teacher to discuss further if you need. For more information: How do I book a tutorial?
You will receive additional comments from the teacher on how to improve each of the writing criteria, then you will receive an overall score and advice about whether you should book a tutorial to practice further.
VIDEO EXPLANATION: Our head of IELTS, Alex, has made a short video explaining how our feedback system compares with the real IELTS scoring system. You can watch the video here : https://e2language.wistia.com/medias/ttm6l0ikni
