IELTS has four English skill components. Writing is the hardest exam, which some students re-do up to 5 times.
Writing, Comprehension, Speaking and Listening exams cause students a lot of angst. Failure in any one will drag down your overall score. Practice with the right level of support is critical across all skills.
Many students fail their Writing exam up to five times. To be confident in writing you need to practice your writing skills often, with feedback to help lift your skills each time you write. Bad habits need correction and a change in writing direction, and spell checking will not give you that.
