Sample Band 6 Answer

Education is basic need, yet it is important for all to become educated whether it is of according to their choice or having science and technological subjects as majors . Both points will be analyzed before reach a conclusion.

On the one hand, all pupils have their right to select their course which they want to pursue in future, because self interest will tend them to work hard. In addition, the field they are interested in will shape up their personality. Since, at university level they are not children any more although they have awareness of what actually is right or wrong for them as well as know how to survive in times of hardship.

On the other hand, science and technology both play a vital role in our daily lives. Both are increasing exponentially. Since, teaching plans made by university should not be considered as useless, because it is made by professionals under certain rules and regulation taking unemployment under consideration. For instant, in order to reduce unemployment ratio, most of Chinese Government third-level institutions are not allowing them option for elective.

In conclusion, no doubt choosing subjects according to them selves has benefits, but perhaps key does lie with science and technology education under the umbrella of university standards.

Why is para 4 1 sentence?// I only see 2 examples of strong collocation but there are also 2 good uses of idiom (are you aware of them?)// G – there is one perfectly correct sentence. All the others have (careless?) slips. Care needs to be taken with articles. Punctuation is faulty// So, Id say: TA – 7 (might be 6)// CC – 6// LR – 7 (just)// G – 6 (so careless)// = 6.5 (6.0 wouldnt surprise me).
Para 4 isnt a paragraph, its one sentence – so no development// both there is only one point – education is a basic need. You havent highlighted anything else/open A window of opportunities & under the umbrella of
