Sample Band 8 Answer

People smoke, be it in a form of cigarette, tobacco or e-cigarettes, for a variety of reasons. It could be as a means of stress relief, for pleasure or just when they are in a social situation. Many nations have already taken the initiative to at least limit smoking in it’s people. These countries, in an effort to reduce the negative consequences brought about by smoking, have came up with ways in which to make people cut back on this addictive habit, I should say that smoking should be banned not only in public places but should be everywhere entirely.

It has been known that there is huge correlation of smoking to lung cancer and most cardio-pulmonary diseases in the human body. The nicotine and tar, among which are the main hazardous components of each cigarette sticks, that one can get when the fumes are inhaled, are the ones responsible for the harmful effects, as these are toxic to the body. Even if these facts are made aware to the public with all the health-related advertisements and gentle reminders, people still have the choice to continue smoking, given that these products are just readily available for purchase in most retail stores.

Moreover, in the scope of environmental issues, the people are made aware of the damages inflicted by the tobacco industry go far beyond the effects of the smokes that cigarettes put into the air as when they are inhaled in the body. The industry itself and the production of them, accounts for the deforestation, climate change, cigarette butt litters and wildfires, which all have damaging impact to nature. They create environment hazards beginning from the use of pesticides, fertilizers, toxic chemicals that depletes the soil of its nutrients. Added to the list is that tobacco cultivation and farming balded our forests leading to hotter climate or global warming. The trash created by cigarette butts is also destroying our oceans and poisoning our marine animals.

In conclusion, a day would not be enough to discuss why smoking should be banned entirely. And it is just right when sometimes, the government will put the reins in it’s own hands and induce measures in putting a stop to smoking by banning it entirely. This way, mortality rates from smoking-related illnesses will be significantly reduced and the environments will be much more conducive and healthier place for all it’s inhabitants to live in as well as for the next generation of human race to come.

Examiner Feedback

There is too much information in the introduction. It is enough to show the examiner that you understand the questions. But at least there are no serious language errors in the introduction. TA – (I suspect that is i an IELTS Liz question). You answer well but there are aspects that you do not consider// CC – the writing flows and ideas are expanded on. Members reading this essay will notice that very few conjunctions are used// LR – there are a few minor slips/non-native speaker word choices (eg accounts for (really?)/ each cigarette sticks/induce measures)// G – there are a couple of ‘clumsy’ sentences and a couple of dependent prepositions I feel are not ‘right’. But I can’ t see anything that is obviously ‘wrong’/unacceptable

So, I’d say:
//TA – 8
// CC – 9
// LR – 8
// G – 9
//Overall = 8.5.
