Sample Band 8 Answer

In our contemporary world, majority of the people like to view books on their electronic devices in comparison to its physical forms. This essay will firstly, discuss how user friendliness is one of the primary causes of it and secondly, outline the dire ramifications it holds for libraries in the form of them being closed.

The main reason for the growth in the trend of viewing books digitally is how easy it is to find a book online as compared to its paper form. With advancements in the field of science and technology, we can view any book written by a not so famous author which would otherwise not be available in the local book shop. For example, with websites like Google books and Amazon, one can directly download or view novels which would not be found in the local library.

However, this development has negative implications for libraries in a way that most people would abandon them. It would not make sense to waste valuable resources and efforts to visit libraries when all of the books would be available to us in our homes with all the comfort in the world .this will eventually result in libraries being shut down. Peshawar, my hometown in Pakistan is a prime example where a public library was shut down recently because it was not being utilized by the general public when e-books were introduced here.

In conclusion, the demand of books in online form can be attributed to how convenient it is for the reader to get any book and ultimately, it will have negative consequences for traditional places of reading, such as university and public libraries, resulting in them being closed.


This is the answer is written by the real student who appeared on IELTS exam and got band 8 for this answer. now, let’s us look forward to the essay feedback given by the IELTS Examiner.

Examiner Feedback

TA – it is sensible that you ‘limit your scope’ in the introduction so the reader knows exactly what you are going to deal with. The Pakistani library example isn’t particularly convincing.// CC – . there is a sense of development and a balance between cohesion & basic conjunctions// LR – plenty of collocation. The conclusion is totally natural// G – , “written by a not so famous author” ?

So, I’d say:
//TA – 7 (a bit strict?)
//CC – 8 (slightly kind?)
//LR – 9 (?)
// G – 8
//Overall = 8.0. You say what you are going to do and you do it. Thank you.
