For an IELTS agree disagree essay you can either agree with the statement, disagree with the statement or give your opinion which contains a balanced approach to the issues in the statement.

Firstly, *cough, cough*, I would like to thank you kindly for such an extensive effort into providing such detailed and straightforward information. Your lessons and tips are clear and concise, and really useful.
After having lived the first 14 years of my life in an english speaking country, when asked to take the IELTS for immigration purposes, I focused on the test style, namely listening and reading, having given little thought to the writing aspect of the test, thinking it would be unnecessary. My overall band score was 8.5, however, the writing score was 6.5, and the department of immigration looks only at the lowest of all band scores. Unfortunately that score is insufficient, so this time, I am making sure I do not make the same mistake.

Hello,
Thank you for sharing so much information about IELTS. Your method of explaining things is very effective.
I wanted to ask if it’s okay to write over 50 words in the introduction in task2 writing. Would there be any negative marking for going beyond that limit?
Also, I would like to know if you can just simply change active to passive or viceversa to paraphrase along with keeping a few original words as it is to write background statement?
Thanks,
