Outline for ielts writing task 2


Whether or not someone achieves their aims is mostly by a question of luck. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Disagree: Luck has nothing to do with success

  • Good luck only comes when a person is prepared for it.

e.g. Every year, hundreds of scholarships are available, but only a limited number of qualified students can gain them.

  • Luck cannot guarantee other success later in life; can’t expect luck to keep you company all the time

Agree: Inborn talent and hard work are the contributing factors to success.

e.g. Steve Jobs in technology, Ngo Bao Chau in mathematics, Le Quang Liem in chess, etc.

They had to work more intensively than ordinary people to fulfill their dreams.

  • In some cases, they do not attain success despite their hard work (examples included).
  • In contrast, others reach their goals effortlessly (examples included).


Success is a result of constant effort which is largely based on the valuable accumulated experience and knowledge.
