Sample Band 7 Answer

Well, Our preference for working enviorment vary from a person to person. Psychology teaches us that we all have indvidual differneces and no humans are alike. So automatically our prefernces and desires will also have differences. If I analyse myself, I guess I would like to work in large company. I would highlight the following reasons below in the essay.

First of all, the major factor which contributes in selecting our working enviorment is our personality traits. For example, extroverts would like to interact with people so eventually they would like to work in large company because they would get an opportunity to interact with more people and expand their social circle, whereas introverts are typically shy, so their priority would be to work alone.

Apart from this large company have an enormous amount of advantages over small companies. Firstly, Large companies are well known and recognised, so the person working in the large company can associate himself with the name of company he is working in and feel a sense of pride in it. Secondly, large companies can pay you more than small companies. And in this contemporary era, There are too many expenses that its nearly impossible to live a contended life without a good pay. Moreover, in large companies you’re likely to be given tasks which require group work. This gives the indvidual an opportunity to develp good social relations with his/her co-workers. Because large companies earn more, so they will offer you more fringe benefits and perks. Fringe benefits like, car from the company, free restauraunt coupans, trips and e.t.c. Hence, a person who will work in a large company with all these benefits would be more motivated to work hard than a person who works in small copmany.

Coming towards me, I am a typical extrovert and I make rational decisions on logical reasoning. According to me benefits of large company totally outweigh benefits offered by small company. Considering all of this my first priority would be to work in a large company.

Examiner Feedback

This is definitely not an ‘authentic’ writing question, IELTS will not ask you your personal preferences. I am therefore concerned about the preparation you have done,especially as you write like someone speaking, which suggests that you haven’t seen many models. TA – I shall assess this as an advantage/disadvantage essay, and as such you perform well and show your opinion throughout the essay// CC – . you begin para 2 with “First of all” but there is no second point. Are 2 sentences a ‘paragraph’? Then in para 3 there is only one use of cohesion and you rely on basic conjunctions to link sentences// LR – the vocabulary is appropriate to he topic and there is good use of collocation (eg ” a sense of pride”). There are noticeable spelling errors but these do not affect the reader understanding what you want to say// G – grammar is a strength but there are too many careless (?) slips. What’s wrong with this? – ” a person who will work in a large company with all these benefits would be more motivated to work hard than a person who…”
So, I’d say:
//TA – 7 (because of the 2nd part of para 3)
// CC – 6 “Coming towards me” & “According to me” are wrong
// LR – 7 (could be 6 because of spelling/would be 8 without spelling errors)
// G – 7
//Overall = 7.0
