This post will show you how to write a strong IELTS thesis statement. It will also explain why you should vary your thesis statement according to the question type you are given in the IELTS writing test.

This post will look at:

what a thesis statement is;

how to identify the different question types;

how to write a thesis statement for each question.

What is a thesis statement?

“A thesis is an idea put forward for consideration, especially one to be discussed or analysed.”

A thesis statement is the most important sentence in your IELTS writing task 2 answer. It is contained in the introduction and each introduction should have one; along with a paraphrase of the question and an outline statement.

A thesis statement is your main idea. I often describe it to students as “the way you feel about the whole issue in one sentence”. It tells the examiner that you have understood the question and it will lead to a clearer, more coherent essay.

Let’s look at an example of an IELTS thesis statement:

Question: There is a good deal of evidence that increasing car use is contributing to global warming and having other undesirable effects on people’s health and well-being.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Thesis statement: This essay agrees that increasing use of motor vehicles is contributing to rising global temperatures and certain health issues. How do I know what to write?

As you can see, this sentence makes it absolutely clear to the examiner how you feel about the question. The rest of your essay should support this statement.

The first thing we need to do is to identify which type of question it is and look at the action words. For example, in the question below the action words are ‘do you agree or disagree?’

Question: There is a good deal of evidence that increasing car use is contributing to global warming and having other undesirable effects on people’s health and well-being.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Therefore, we need to tell the examiner clearly whether we agree or disagree and this will influence our thesis statement.

Computers are being used more and more in education.

Let’s look at other examples:

Computers are being used more and more in education. Some people say that this is a positive trend, while others argue that it is leading to negative consequences. Students are becoming more and more reliant on computers.

Discuss both sides of this argument and then give your own opinion.

What are some of the problems associated with reliance on computers, and what are some of the possible solutions?

In each of the three questions above the main keywords are more or less the same- education and computers. However, if we look at the action words we can see that we are required to answer the three questions in very different ways and this will affect our thesis statement.

Discuss both sides of this argument and then give your own opinion.

What are some of the problems and what are some of the possible solutions?

The action words are:

How do I write a thesis statement for each question type?

It is therefore important to take some time to analyse the question and establish what the question is actually asking us to do.

Opinion Question (Do you agree or Disagree)

Discussion Question (Discuss both points of view)

Problem and Solution.

Once we have established what the question wants us to do, we can now think about our thesis statement. Below we will look at how to write a thesis statement for four different kinds of question:

Opinion Question Some aspects of celebrity culture have a bad influence on young people. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

You should remember that although IELTS writing part 2 questions normally follow a standard format as above, they sometimes change and you should be ppared for that.

We have three choices with this kind of question:

I tell my students to only choose options one or two. Choosing option three will often lead to a confused and/or very long essay. If you have just one opinion and you stick to this, it will lead to a clear and well-argued essay.

I agree that some aspects of celebrity culture have a bad influence on young people.

I disagree that some aspects of celebrity culture have a bad influence on young people.

Therefore, you have two choices.

All of your thesis statements for this kind of question should start with:

This essay agrees that…..

or

This essay disagrees that…..

We should try to avoid using personal pronouns like ‘I’ and we therefore use ‘This essay….’ instead.

Also remember that we should not copy the question as this is not allowed in the IELTS writing test and instead we should paraphrase.

Second Example Opinion Question Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

For example, ‘ This essay agrees that the some famous people’s lifestyles have a detrimental effect on the youth of today.’

Discussion Question Computers are being used more and more in education. Some people say that this is a positive trend, while others argue that it is leading to negative consequences. Discuss both sides of this argument and then give your own opinion.

Thesis Statement: This essay disagrees that the best way to resolve increasing pollution and congestion problems is to raise the cost of fuel.

For this kind of question we need to clearly state both sides of the argument and state our own opinion.

We do this by simply paraphrasing the question; thus stating both sides, and then giving our own opinion. Our own opinion will be just one side of the argument.

Thesis statement: Some argue that schools and universities increasing use of computers is a beneficial trend, while others are opposed to this view. This essay agrees that growing use of technology by educators is a positive development.

Second Example Discussion Question Some people think that parents should teach children how to be good members of society. Others, however, believe that school is the best place to learn this. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

As you can see, this student has clearly stated both sides of the argument and stated which side of the argument she pfers.

Cause and Solution Question In some countries the average weight of people is increasing and their levels of health and fitness are decreasing. What do you think are the causes of these problems and what measures could be taken to solve them?

Thesis statement: The principal problem is students allowing machines to do all the work for them without thinking for themselves and a possible solution is to have stricter supervision from teachers and parents.

Next Steps

Thesis statement: The principal cause of this problem is peoples’ sedentary lifestyles and a possible solution is to educate society about the dangers of not keeping fit.

This is just a broad overview of IELTS thesis statements and it should be read in conjunction with my article on how to write an effective introduction in order to be fully understood.

**Please note**

It should be reiterated that these are the four most common question types that come up in the IELTS writing test. HOWEVER, these question types sometimes do vary and you should be ready to change your IELTS thesis statements and introductions accordingly.

To do this with confidence on the day of your exam, you need to have practised many times beforehand.
