Sample Band 8 Answer

It is true that there is a growing number of wild animals that are predicted to extinct in near future, and are on the list of endangered species. There are a variety of possible reasons for this, but steps can definitely be taken to tackle the problem.

In my opinion, there are three major factors to blame for the rapid decline of wildlife. Firstly, the destruction of natural habitat has been a threat to the wild animals. The growth of global population has encroached the natural habit of wild faunae such that they do not have a suitable environment to thrive. Secondly, the food supply is scarce for wild animals. With global warming, a number of plant species have declined. This, in turn, has affected the ecosystem to the extent that many animal species – both herbivorous and carnivorous- to decline as well. Lastly, the animals that manage to survive under all these adverse circumstances are hunted. Wild animals are poached for their skins, hoof and meat- most of which are believed to have aphrodisiac powers.

There are various steps that can be taken to mitigate the problem. Enough forests and natural habitat to the wild should be conserved so that wild animals can survive and live naturally. Also, the effect of wildlife and good effect they have on the environment should be educated to people by incorporating them in school syllabus and promoting television programmes, so that they work hand in hand for wildlife conservation. At the same time laws have to be made, and also strictly implemented against poaching, thus letting the remaining species survive.

In conclusion, there are various reasons why wildlife species are at the verge of extinction and there are solutions that when implemented can definitely help to address the problem.

Examiner Feedback

TA – it’s unfortunate you don’t give specific examples of animals or develop your ideas further in para 3// CC – firstly/secondly/lastly is likely to limit the band but para 3 ‘flows’// LR – “letting” in the conclusion isn’t the right word. “hoof/hooves” is a G error// G – a couple of dependent prepositions are incorrect. There could be more evidence of complex grammar structures

So, I’d say:
//TA – 7
// CC – 7 ( I considered 6 for a short time)
// LR – 8
// G – 9 (?)
//Overall = 8.0.
