How to write a perfect Agree or Disagree Essay in IELTS Exam?

The essay type questions for Task 2 are usually asking about some general thing in society. The topic could be education, health, age, gender roles, the youth, the environment, technology, crimes, government, or anything. Therefore, you cannot learn a sentence that you can insert into an essay, as it is unlikely that you will be able to use it in the specific question that you have on the day of your test.

 However, there is a structure to use that gives you a balanced essay that will help you get a good mark for answering the question. Lots of IELTS candidates do not do this, as they are trying to impress the examiner with advanced words and forget to focus on actually giving a point of view with clear thought and examples.

Agree or disagree IELTS essay question type asks you to determine whether you agree or disagree with the statement. Unlike questions that ask you to what extent do you agree or disagree, this question asks you to have a super-clear opinion.

Now, let’s learn the structure for Agree or Disagree type essay. There are many ways to write an essay, but this one is commonly used and recommended by many IELTS examiners.


“Prevention is better than cure”. Researching and treating diseases is too costly so it would be better to invest in preventative measures. 

To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Introduction:

Point 1 - thesis statement (you can use ‘it is argued/considered/thought that’ to start) or Paraphrase the question in your own words.

Developing and buying medicine is expensive and some believe that money would be better spent on preventing the disease from arising in the first place.

Point 2 - say whether you agree or disagree with it and extend your opinion

I somewhat disagree with this notion.

Point 3 - Summarize your main ideas of your essay, or briefly outline what you are going to write in the next two paragraphs to support your opinion.

It would be a mistake to focus only on prevention as there will always be diseases to treat and spending money on the research and development of medicines might lead to more effective preventative measures.


Body Paragraph 1 

Sentence 1 (topic sentence): Tell the reader what this paragraph is about by introducing your first point. 

Preventative actions do not always stop the illness from occurring.

Sentence 2: Assume that the reader doesn’t know anything about this topic and explain your point clearly. 

One glance at the healthy living section of a book store shows that there are opposing opinions on what to do to keep illness away. 

Sentence 3: Give a real-life or made-up example that illustrates and supports this point. 

For instance, smoking is an identified cause of cancer but choosing not to smoke does not guarantee that you will not develop lung cancer because it still occurs in non-smokers. 

Sentence 4: State an opposing position but redirect to yours. 

So, although it is undeniable that preventative measures increase the chances of a healthy life, they will never ensure a disease-free world.


Body Paragraph 2

Sentence 1 (topic sentence): Tell the reader what this paragraph is about by introducing the second point. 

Instead, we need to continue funding the research and development of medicines to better understand the cause as well as the prevention of disease. 

Sentence 2: Assume that the reader doesn’t know anything about this topic and explain your point clearly. 

If we keep looking for ways to fight and treat sicknesses, we are more likely to find better ways to stop them from occurring.

Sentence 3: Give a real-life or made-up example that illustrates and supports this point. 

For example, while searching for ways to cure a cold, scientists discovered that an effective way to avoid catching one was frequent hand cleaning but, before the science, it was mistakenly believed that avoiding cold air would keep the virus away. 

Sentence 4: State an opposing position but redirect to yours. 
So, it’s true that it takes a great deal of money to develop new medicines, however, those investments lead to more informed methods for keeping people healthy.

Conclusion

Sentence 1: Rephrase your opinion and sum up your two supporting points. 

Prevention goes far in improving people’s lives and reducing suffering but we still are not certain that these methods work for all, so continued investment into research and treatment is important. 

Sentence 2: Make a prediction or a recommendation based on what you have said. 

Investing money in both tactics would be ideal
