Hello everybody,

I learned the toefl writing template (THANKS A LOT) and I did some essays but i just realized that I typed around 300 words for each essay.
Whereas ETS mentioned that the first essay requires 160-225 but other website say that 300 is fine.

Can someone tell me if 300 is fine for the first and/or second essay ?

what is the right number of word to write for each essay ? any limit ?

Thanks a lot !

You are required to write a minimum of 150-225 words in the first task and 300-350 in the second.

I suggest you to write more words than that, I would say 250-300 for the first and 350-400 for the second.

However, do that only if you have plenty of time to review it and if it doesn't affect the quality of your essay. I think it's far more important to have 5 minutes to review and to improve the structure of the essay, than adding words.
