The response has a clear overall progression and organization as it is introduced, the main features are identified, then it clearly compares the first map with the second. There is a mix of vocabulary, with the right language of location used to say where things were positioned and the language of comparison and contrast used to good effect to show how things differed or remained the same. It does not score well in GRA as there are several tense and conjunction errors in the answer which limits the score.
