Sample Band 6 Answer

People in a few countries support adults to do job or take tour after completing their Intermediate-level education for period of a year. This essay will discuss that how it will be beneficial to select right field for study before taking admission to universities also, how it will affect on their job in future, and giving less amount of time to serve their country.

On the one hand, the main advantage of giving pupils free hand for one year to work or travel will be helpful in choosing proper field of study. Thus, they will then work in that field with the core of their heart. For instance, a person who has little bit time for choosing his future field might select the course which society wants, not according to his wish, so giving them 12 months for work and travel around country will place mirror in front of them and will teach that what they have actually made for. In addition, having practical knowledge regarding subject which they will seek in university is really good to have, they will not require more time to study this particular subject.

On the other hand, as we know everything has two sides, this is not an exceptional case. Everyones life period is not fixed, it is however, pre-written, it will be better to use it by giving service to beloved country rather than wasting on tours. Let us take and example of our country Pakistan, according to our countrys constitution: no one could do job after 60 years of age. Thus, wasting time on tour will affect their job in future as they have spend one year on doing work or take tours which means they will be given one year less to serve their country.

On balance, sometimes it is beneficial to take gape of one year in between High school and third-level institute in order to select right field for study, but also it has disadvantage of wasting one year on tour and work as in results you will be given opportunity to serve your country for less amount of time.

Examiner Feedback

Intermediate -level education? Where did you learn that term? According to the introduction you are going to discuss 3 points. Is that your intention? Will the examiner think you have answered the question? TA – why do you emphasise serving ones country? Even though you have examples the writing is too general and your argument is not convincing// CC – you rely on too many conjunctions to link sentences and the punctuation (which is penalised in G) has a negative effect on cohesion inside some sentences//LR – I challenge you to find thee phrases/word combinations in model Task 2s & academic writing. IELTS is not the place for poets// G – articles remains a major weakness & punctuation is faulty. These errors combined with a few other basic errors means there is a mistake in every sentence// So, Id say: TA – 6// CC – 6 (close to 7)// LR – 7 ? just)// G – 6// = 6,0. Sorry you had to wait
