The academic writing test in the IELTS exam lasts for 60 minutes.
The writing test contains two compulsoory tasks, namely Task 1 and Task 2. In Task 1, you are asked to describe graphs, bar charts, pie charts and diagrams and in Task 2, you are given an essay title on a fairly general subject.
Task 1 assesses your ability to analyse data objectively without giving an opinion, whereas Task 2 usually requires a subjective piece of writing on a fairly general topic. In addition, it is worth noting that the exam is not testing knowledge of English language, but rather competence in using English. In other words, it is not testing memory. Awareness of this might help reduce some of the problems that many candidates have in the IELTS exam.
