Sample Band 6 Answer

It has often been argued that whether public places like museums and art galleries should be entry free or there should be an imposition of entrance fee. In my opinion, such places should be free to the public so that everyone must avail the opportunity to visit them.

Some argue that museums and art galleries should be levied even if is a small amount. There are few reasons behind this. Firstly, these places are visited by many people this way it’s a great source to boost the economy of a country, by implementing entry free they would generate a large amount, this money could be used for the maintenance and renovation of museums and galleries and could be used elsewhere as well. Moreover, some people are not interested in arts and museums but they only visit because it’s free to enter, by charging such people would refrain from visiting. Thus, overcrowding would be minimised.

In my opinion, places like these should be entry free. They represent our art, culture and historical values and everyone should visit them regardless of their financial situation. To illustrate, there is a heritage museum in my city which is well equipped with historical data, it is a great source of learning for every individual. However, due to the high cost of entry, many people are unable to visit. This is why government ought to make them free in my opinion.

Concluding this, I would say undoubtedly charging would help to keep a decorum and these place up to date by investing on them, but I strongly favor to make entry free so everyone gets a chance to visit and learn something.


This is the answer is written by the real student who appeared on IELTS exam and got band 6 for this answer. now, let’s us look forward to the essay feedback given by the IELTS Examiner.

Examiner Feedback

Why do you answer the question in the introduction when it’s a discussion question. Can you see the serious grammar error in the first sentence? TA – “few” = not many/ “a few” = some. You are already giving the examiner a bad impression of your language skills and it’s only the third sentence. Where do you discuss both views? I see one side and your opinion. The conclusion contradicts itself// CC – there is some cohesion is para 2 but most of the sentences are linked by basic conjunctions// LR – there’s enough collocation. Carrier nouns would help (and with CC). The conclusion is weak in terms of word choice and would prevent 8+//G – there are very few grammar errors (hardly any). But faulty punctuation has to limit the band. And don’t use contractions (it’s)
So, I’d say:
//TA – 6 (an examiner under pressure might give 5)
// CC – 6
// LR – 7
// G – 6 (I considered 5 because of punctuation, particularly para 2)
//Overall = 6.0. Was the overuse of commas a typo or lack of control?
