Proofread your essay to check for spelling and grammar errors is one of the steps.

1. Identify what the essay question/ title is asking you to write about; check with friends or your tutor that you really understand the question.
2. Divide the task into sub-tasks e.g. library search, planning, making notes, and draw up a timescale for completing these tasks.
3. Brainstorm ideas and make an initial plan for your essay.
4. Search for and select appropriate information; read and make notes.
5. Make first draft of essay. Remember to include an introduction, a well sequenced middle and a conclusion. Remember your tutor has to be able to follow your argument, so put it in a logical order.
6. Read your essay; alter parts you are not happy with; check spelling and grammar.
7. Write final version, proof read. Complete essay self-evaluation and submit on time.


Hope this helps you out :)
P.S.:when brain storming write clearly and seperate a page into a couple of boxes one for each idea.

In this day in age, I recommend putting your essays into an AI to check for grammatical errors.

Not suggesting getting an AI to write for you, but simply check.

While I am not too familiar with the IELTS criteria, I highly suggest you take the time to check your spelling and grammar. Always remember to double check!
