    Feedback:

    The response to the question is not long enough. For Task 1 candidates must write at least 150 words but this answer is below that number. The writing is presented in a satisfactory format but there is a serious error about the kind of chart shown in the introduction which greatly limits the score. The points made in the answer are relevant to the question but could be developed. The candidate does not complete the requirements of the task because there is no clear overview. The writer shows some awareness of sentence structure however, there are frequent grammatical errors throughout the answer The answer flows quite smoothly although connectives are used less, and some of the points do not link up well. The grammatical accuracy is lacking in subject verb agreement and tenses. Language of comparision and contrast has been used well.

    Band Score:1.5/3
