Various steps involved in writing IELTS task 2 essays in a systematic way are sequenced in the given flowchart.

Overall, it is clear that the whole process is systematic and time-based.

It is clear from the chart that there are six crucial steps prior to writing the task 2 essays, which range from 9 to 15 minutes. Of these, the primary step is critical reading and understanding of the question, followed by realizing the motive of the question.

The careful isolation of the topic or topics from the question, to which the answer is related, is the next step. Thereafter, ideas and examples which are closely related to the topic are generated. The time allotment for these four steps is between 7 to 11 minutes. Ranking and organizing the selected ideas is the subsequent step and the ultimate step before writing the essay is outline framing.

The next 15 to 20 minutes is the most significant part of the process: writing the essay legibly in the correct format. The process is incomplete without proof reading (3-5 minutes) and an optional editing, which should fit to the available time left.
