This article is the last part of the series 3 Topics for Essay Writing IELTS: Argument, Hidden Argument, Situation. And we will talk about Situation type in this article.

3.    Situation
For example: Due to change of women’s role in modern society, men are now the ones suffering from sexual discrimination. Do you agree?
Here you can see the description of situation and you have to write what you think about it.

In this type of topic, you need to explore situation, and the reasons why it is what it is, and assume what will happen in the future and suggest solution to problems if required. Here is the sample of structure for this type of topic.
  • Introduction: state the situation and explain it. You do not need to give your opinion here. 
  •  Body : The detail, contain the reasons for the situation. Write at least 2 reasons. Write at least 2 paragraphs that each talk about each reason that lead to the situation. 
  •  Conclusion: Write the summary of the points you made in the essay. If the task requires suggesting solution to problems, recommendations, advice - this is the place for it. If your opinion is required – you should also give it in conclusion paragraph.

  1. Write on given topic directly. Is it situation, argument, or hidden argument topics?
