Wages growth line graph

The describes the growth of wages in Somecountry from the year 1993 to 2003.

The growth started at two percent in 1993, but it didn’t stay there very long before it rapidly doubled in 1994. Further on, the percentages to three percent in 1995, stayed steady for year, before starting to rise slowly and ending up just under four percent in 1997. 1998 was the best year where the wages peaked at six percent.

However, after 1998 the wages declined nearly every year. Only a year , the percentage dropped to well under three percent, and stayed there on roughly three percent till 2000. In 2002 the wages reached the lowest point of just one percent growth. Luckily the growth rose in 2003 at under two percent.

This is a good report. It covers the task, is divided correctly into paragraphs and the vocabulary is suitable. Its problems are that it has fewer than 150 words (146) and there are some grammatical errors. Assuming the corrections were made, this looks like a Band 7 report.

The main trend is that all grades including kindergarten growing every year.

This is a good report; here is how you can make it better: the coherence needs improvement, meaning the logical connection between sentences inside a paragraph and between paragraphs. Use more connective words (Furthermore, However, etc).

The grouping you’ve done is fine, but try to use more variations describing those statistics: use words such as numbers, figures, percentages, etc. The grammar and the spelling need some extra attention.Overall, this report seems worthy of Band 7
