First paragraph includes paraphrasing the question and my personal opinion about the paragraph should contain the reasons why i disagree or disagree and its supporting details. Lastly, template, paraphrased question, my opinion, and recommendation must be found in my last paragraph which is the third one.
Make sure you learn the band score requirements for each band score in writing and speaking. You can find this information on the main pages of this blog.
