Writing Task – IELTS General 
There is a difference between a Band 6 task response and a Band 7 response in IELTS writing section. Do you know what this difference is? Unless you know, it would be just impossible for you to upgrade your band score from Band 6 to Band 7.
Let us try to understand this difference with a question:

  • What action you are requesting from authority

Following is the response of a student who got 6 Band in writing:
let   us see the task response of a candidate who received Band 7 in writing.
Band 7 Answer:
Dear Sir/Mam,
I am writing this letter to file a complaint about my suitcase that I lost in the flight during my travel.
Last Sunday night at around 10 O’clock, I was travelling by Air India from Bangalore to Delhi. I was carrying a laptop bag in my hand while my suitcase was kept under my seat no. A101. The flight had an unexpected stay for around 1 hour, so I slept as I was already tired enough due to hectic schedule for the whole day. When I woke up, I saw the flight had reached London and sub-consciously, I left the plane with my laptop and forgetting my suitcase there. This suitcase is actually a trolley bag and black in colour with brand name “VIP” printed at its left top corner. In addition to this, it contains some of my official documents such as two blue and two green colored files along with a “Parker” pen.
I request you to please take action on my complaint and help in recovering back my suitcase as soon as possible.
Yours faithfully,
Rajesh Verma
