what's your opinion?

I hear a lot of people asking, "in task 2 writing, should I save my opinion until my conclusion?"   The answer is no.  Take a look at the band descriptors for task 2.  In Task Response, at band 7 it clearly says, " presents a clear position throughout the response."  If you leave your opinion until the end of the essay, then it is not clear throughout.  "Throughout the response"  means starting from your introduction.  Even if you present the opposing point of view in your first body paragraph, it is clear from your introduction what your opinion is.
