Sample Band 7 Answer

It has been argued by some that abstaining from consuming meat and fish in not only good for personal well being but also for the betterment of this planet. I disagree with this statement since eating meat has its own fruits for the human’s health as well as for the earth’s ecosystem.

To explain the view of total restraint from fish and meat, i would put forward the theory of absolute non-violence presented by a number of philosophers. They considered the use of animals for food an offence and took it for a manifestation of the violent behavior of mankind. Followers of these theories are popular nowadays as vegetarians.

However this view has been disapproved by modern scientific explanation of the classic philosophical theories. The positive impact of utilization of food from animal sources has benefits that are manifold, ranging from being a rich source of protein to being a natural method of biological control. Proteins are an essential part of human body and they must be taken in required amount per day in order to maintain the integrity of the cells. Missing them in food may lead to malnutrition. Similarly, the natural system of controlling the population of, and its effect on ecosystem, by one organism through placing it below another one in the food chain would be disturbed if we dont consume meat or fish in our food.

In conclusion, the view of not having meat or fish or meat in one’s diet has long been supported for its positive impact on personal and global health but is nullified by modern research for its negative consequences. it is no in fact promoted as an important measure to avoid malnutrition and to maintain balance in ecosystem.

Examiner Feedback

“Abstaining” has connotations that could change the focus of the question, Using a thesaurus is dangerous. TA – para 2 is interesting but irrelevant to the issue and to use it as a starting point sends you off topic to some extent. You move back on track in para 3 but the last sentence of the paragraph does not adequately cover that key aspect// CC – really good (apart from the intro). But para 3 is basically a biology text rather than a typical IELTS answer// LR – there is plenty of evidence of collocation. Some of the word choice in para 3 seems a bit odd to me but it might be appropriate for biology// G – 4 article errors & 1 incorrect preposition. Don’t (punctuation error) use contractions in formal writing

So, I’d say:
//TA – 5 (I can’t see how it can be higher)
// CC – 8 (the intro is the weakest part)
// LR – 8 (? The intro is the weakest part)
// G – 8
//Overall = 7.0.
