Sample Band 6 Answer

Nowadays, a number of countries have recently outlawed smoking in public places such as parks and working buildings for the welfare of the community.However, some countries seem to have no implementation for addressing this issue.In this essay, I will discuss about this debate from both sides and draw my own conclusion.

On the one hand, some poor countries have to struggle with financial problems especially to provide infrastructure for the public in particular.In this case, it might be said that as a government, there would be less emphasis on legislation concerning health care management system when it comes to the problems of smoking.Another widely-observed factor is that other countries have no school curriculum for health education particularly at primary education level.As a result, children appear to have no knowledge for healthy habits and start trying to smoke in their early ages and must be difficult to control smoking when they grow old, and there would be some challengings for the authorities to impose rule of law on such populace.

On the other hand, law enforcement has been carried out effectively by many countries ,for instance, the UK in light of banning smoking in crowded areas for the interests of the public.In those countries,there seem to have wide range of media coverage for health educations with regard to health benefits of non-smoking and complications of smokings such as respiratory tract diseases ,for example, lung cancer and exacerbation of other non communicable diseases like heart disease ,hypertension and dibetes ,and meaning that from children to older generation , they can have a proper knowledge of negative consequences of smoking.Finally, it would be easy for the government to enforce laws on such people.

Overall, it is logical to conclude that prevention of smoking tobaccos or cigarettes by the government would create a country to become much healthier and more prosperous ,and there must be substantial drawbacks for those countries which do not prohibit smoking in public.

Examiner Feedback

From the wording, this is not an ‘authentic’ question. TA – paragraph 2 is far too general.Para 3 is similar in style and “it would be easy for the government to enforce laws on such people.” is puzzling for a number of reasons. Do you reach a clear conclusion?// CC – you use cohesion well but only 3 long sentences in paras 2 & 3 suggests something isn’t right// LR – there is good use of collocation but not all the writing is ‘natural; in style. “challengings”?// G – I have to penalise faulty punctuation here. There are some excellent “chunks” of language but also places where there is a lack of control

So, I’d say:
//TA – 6 (it is very “woolly” so an examiner with a pile of papers might be 5)
// CC – 7 (just)
// LR – 7
// G – 6
//Overall = 6.5 (but 6.0 wouldn’t surprise me).
