These days, it’s easy to get your IELTS checked online for free, and it takes just a few seconds.
However, the problem with these free online essay checkers is that they are generated by A.I. (Artificial Intelligence).
A.I. essay checkers can correct your grammar and tell you how many times you’ve repeated the same word but they mostly they take a very superficial look at your essay.
Although they are a good way to start identifying areas that you can improve, they are often very inaccurate.
The feedback is ‘generic’, meaning it’s the same for everyone, and not specific to your needs. Their understanding of IELTS band criteria is also limited. So the feedback is not detailed enough to help you improve your score.
In the comments below, you can see me give quick reasons why candidates are missing the Band 7 score they need.
I’m sorry I had more submissions than I expected, so I am not offering feedback at the moment.
FAQ: Is this feedback right for me?
My feedback will help you if you’ve taken the IELTS Writing test several times, and cannot understand why you’re not getting Band 7.
If you haven’t taken the test yet, it’s better for you to get some basic feedback from an online IELTS essay checker (A.I. or human, free or paid) while you’re preparing.
IMPORTANT! Check your writing before you submit
The aim of my feedback is NOT to check your grammar or spelling. You can do that for free, using any AI tool.
If there are too many grammar mistakes, that’s why you’re not getting Band 7.
Also, do a word count check – many of the problems I’ve seen so far come from students writing TOO MANY WORDS, which leads to more grammar mistakes. Stay below 320 WORDS absolute maximum.
No more than one submission per person please.
