Sample Band 6 Answer

It is believed by a few people that all third-level institutes should conduct lectures on various types of things which are necessary to become a good professional, others,however, think that it is not responsibility of any university to provide, because universities aim is to provide only field related knowledge, which I believe, is not an appropriate way to reduce unemployment.

Taking other skills other than field related under consideration is road directly to unexpected success. Pupils having only information of their subjects are often rejected by Multinational Companies due to lack of confidence and unawareness of practical work. For instance, taking an example of two ISO certified universities of Pakistan, National University of Science and Technology(NUST) and Mehran UET (MUET), employment ratio of NUST graduates is far greater than the MUET. Although, MUET provides high quality education related to only their subjects but lack of effective skills to hunt a job and strategies to apply at work in MUET graduates is only reason behind their unemployment.

I do appreciate the opinion of those who think that lectures other than subjects are not quite important, and this is not universities cup of tea. To provide only field related education is key to make them able to concentrate only on particular area instead of unbearable load of multiple things at a time. Nevertheless, in order to achieve success in their life, other necessary things apart from field are equally important. Even though, seeking required skills useful at work place parallel with subjects will reduce unemployment rate in near future if we really take this problem seriously.

In conclusion, providing enormous knowledge about practical work and skills to apply at work place would help them at their workplace, and undoubtedly , it is workable solution to get rid of unemployment.


This is the answer is written by the real student who appeared on IELTS exam and got band 6 for this answer. now, let’s us look forward to the essay feedback given by the IELTS Examiner.

Examiner Feedback

third-level means poor quality. You mean tertiary. If its only a few people.whats the point of discussing the issue? Do not use things in the Ac module. What does field related mean? Is unemployment directly related to the question? There are article problems and faulty punctuation. So before you get into the main body LR & G are limited and possibly TA too. TA – unexpected success??? lectures other than subjects are not quite important, and this is not universities cup of tea??? Im afraid I dont understand the purpose of para 3. What is the topic sentence? Why do you use solution in the conclusion? I hope you can see that Im completely lost all the way through this essay because of your choice of vocabulary (the lack of carrier nouns and familiar collocation means the reader doesnt get guidance) and lack of relevant examples in para 3, Have you done what Varun suggests?// CC – sorry, I cant follow any development of an argument. In para 3 nevertheless is followed by even though but I cant understand why// LR- there is probably enough collocation but many of the key terms you use are alien to me, and being a native speaker this suggests there is major weakness in your vocabulary// G – articles are a major problem. As a result there is an error in almost every sentence so I have to .limit the band despite there being a good range of grammar patterns// So, Id say: TA – 5 (why do you dwell on unemployment?)// CC – 5 (there is not enough help for the reader and using although & but in the same sentence in para 2 is a very basic mistake)// LR – 7 (I feel I;m being generous)// G – 6 (because of the frequency of minor errors)// = 6.0. Sorry.
