2. Don’t write any new ideas in conclusion
Some of the students think that i should write a new idea in the conclusion but that is their biggest mistake because you new idea is not mentioned in the body paragraphs. So the examiner finds it new and this looks like disconnected to the question. So, always write same ideas in the IELTS writing task 2 conclusion.

Writing the same ideas does not mean you need to copy them or writing in same language. Remember that, IELTS test is to check you english so to prove yourself, you need to change the sentences and add some vocabulary. Change the whole sentence but the meaning & ideas should be the same. As you know, IELTS writing task 2 conclusion is all about english skills.

Sometimes, students try to add all the information in the IELTS writing task 2 conclusion but this affects the length of conclusion and make it unclear. You have given all the detail in the main body paragraphs So you do not need to do this again in the conclusion. Just represent the mainpoints and shorten them in an understanding way.

This is not a pro tip but this should be. Some of the beginner students do this all the time. They think body paragraphs are mandatory but conclusion is not. But do not do that. Conclusion is the result of whole IELTS writing task 2. A exam without a result not looks professional.
