Practice drafting a clear and concise thesis statement

If the question does not ask our opinion explicitly, would my mark be reduced if I use the phrases like”I believe, I think” couple of times in the essay (spesifically in introduction and conclusion) ? While writing introduction after paraphrasing the question I wrote ” In this essay, I will outline the reasons etc…) and I am worried now it will prevent me from getting band 8.

Hi Liz. Thank you so much for your valuable advices. Just a small question. If the essay asks us to discuss both sides and give your opinion, where should I state my opinion? Do I state it in the introduction paragraph as my thesis statement? or do I have a seperate paragraph for my opinion after discussing both sides impartially?

Hi Liz,
thank you for your beautiful free lessons and advance lessons too for writing task 2.
i am confused about Disction essay with opinion, in your example or model eassy explanation, you said: should state opinion in thesis statement ….well, thats clear.
in my previous IELTS preparation course,the teacher said in this type of question, should state your opinion only in conclusion. not in introduction!!!
which is right way for IELTS
Thanks again for your effort and easy way to explain it to us.

See the main writing task 2 page:

Liz, your work is outstanding, helpful and useful. Thanks a lot. I’ve been studying for IELTS by your videos and site.
I’ll take the Academic IELTS, and now I’m learning how to do my essay (task2). I found your tips for giving opinion essays, but I wasn’t able to find tips for other kinds of essay (giving solutions, evaluate both sides, arguing, etc..). For example, I guess the introduction doesn’t have a thesis statement as you show in your video.

You give it in the introduction, in the BP and conclusion.
