Hi, I'm Liz. Welcome to my IELTS tips, model answers and practice

Question: Many students take a year off between finishing high score and going to university. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
Into: Having a gap year before starting tertiary education is becoming increasing popular. I believe that although there may be problems with this, in the long run it is more beneficial and helps students developing into more rounded characters.

I will really appreciate your guidance. Many thanks.

It is asking directly what you think. Therefore, you must answer it directly. Do you think the advs outweigh the disadvs – state what you think.

Many thanks for your fast answer…
