Sample Band 7 Answer

It has long been a hot topic for cross-talk that whether or not the various types of information coming from science, academia, or commerce may be shared with others, with some being in its favor while others going against it, finding it as a loss of information of utmost importance. This essay will throw light on both of these views before a reasoned conclusion shall be drawn at the end.

At one of this discussion lies the view of sharing the data from studies in various walks of life with anyone around. This would hold true of the information that is meant for the benefit of general public and which must be shared as widely as it goes. For instance, research articles, field surveys, disease treatment guidelines, new arrivals in the literature, new statistics etc. are all valuable and precious but must not be kept from their audience and anyone they are meant to have an effect on.

However, at the other end of this bipolar view lies a rather stricter approach of a different school of thought, stating that the facts and figures obtained from studies should be kept secret as they are too important to be given away that easy. However, this attitude is far too negative to gain any positive views since spreading knowledge is what it is meant for and any information, no matter how much valuable, must be disclosed to credit its origin. For example, if the results of an important medical investigation about the mechanism of spread of a contagious disease are not published for the public, it is, in no way, going to serve its purpose of conduct resulting in loss of the so called “important and precious” information.

In conclusion, the spread of information should never be limited and a restriction on giving away data based merely on ill well is a despicable waste of knowledge and a set back to the motivation for scientific and academic pursuit.


This is the answer is written by the real student who appeared on IELTS exam and got band 7 for this answer. now, let’s us look forward to the essay feedback given by the IELTS Examiner.

Examiner Feedback

TA – the response is too general// CC – a good use of cohesion but some of the writing is in a spoken style. Why do you use “However” twice in para 3?// LR – there is adequate collocation but some odd word choice (bipolar/ cross-talk/etc)// G – why “shall ” in the introduction? One missing article, There is one long, clumsy sentence that prevents me from saying 9

So, I’d say:
//TA – 6
// CC – 7 (just)
// LR – 7
// G – 8 (9??)
//Overall = 7.0.
