Student’s essay writing sample.
The Internet is one of the Major inventions of the 21st century. Some people think that it is an excellent method for transferring information but others believe that it is not the best place to get information. Communication was fast and effective with the use of the internet. However, this contains most of the information accessible only to people who have knowledge of electronic usage.
Firstly, the Internet is assists in communication between individuals from a different part of the world promptly. In addition to that transfer of information is effortless. For example, the main communication use of internet are websites, social medias like Face book, What’s app, Skype. Also, with the aid of these anyone from different nations can see, talk and exchange information.
On the other hand, Internet information is not everyone with minimum electronic usage. Also, it is not available in many developing nation mainly Indian and African subcontinent where less than 15 % of people have access to internet facility. There most of them are not receiving enough basic education. Hence it cannot be considered as the best method for receive information.
In conclusion, I personally think that the internet can be used as the best method of communication. Also, even though it had not reached to all parts of the people. However, today it is one of the major growing means of communication. Development of nations and education of its people help the improvement of internet usage . Also, and later a generation which has access to immediate communication can be full filled.

(The connector ‘Firstly’ is used to begin and is followed by ‘In addition to’. Connectors like secondly thirdly etc which were supposed to be followed in the later part of the essay are missing).
Trainer notes – If the sentences are long and incoherent, marks will be deducted. Even if a
single sentence is incoherent give 7.5. If every paragraph is in-coherent, give 6.5 or lower bands
depending on the level of incoherency. The lower the quality of sentence formation, and the
higher the frequency of writing incoherent sentences, the lower the band

I personally think that the internet can be used as the best method of communication. Hence, even though it had not reached to all parts of the people.
Grammar is essential for describing a topic . So, if each sentence consists of a grammatical error there is high possibility that you will score a band 3.
Trainer notes – If the answer has less than 3 unwitting or spelling errors, give 8. If the errors are
more than 3, deduct more bands. Higher the frequency of grammar errors, lower the band. More
than 50% of Indian student fall between 4 to 6 band, because they make anywhere between 5
to 10 errors in the entire essay
- uses only basic vocabulary which is insufficient for the task.
- has limited control of word formation
- Has spelling errors.
This essay doesn’t present a wide range of vocabulary and unnecessary words are used to elongate the sentence. Hence, the meaning is lost. This is the reason for scoring a 4 band in this category.
Overall Band: 4.0
