    The table reveals the ratio of pupils of homeschooled in several country within a time span of six years.
    To sum up,kindergarten,grade 3-4 and grade 7-8 witnessed a linear pattern in the upward direction,whilst other had zig-zag pattern over the period of six years. (plz see sir my conclusion is correct?i do not know how to write conclusion in table.if it is wrong let me know sir how to correct it?)
    According to the table,proportion of students of kindergarten was 2.4% in the first year and it raised by 0.1% point in the following two years.Furthermore,pupils remained plateau in 2002 and 2003 and again slightly increase to 2.9 in 2004.Moreover,percentages of grade 1-2 went through several fluctuations from the year of 1999 to 2006.
    With regards to proportion of homeschooled students in some country,it stood at 1.6% in the grade 3-4 at first year, while it grew up by 0.1% point till 2004.Additionally,in 1990,the proportion of pupils of grade 5-6 was 1.5 which was higher than 2002 and 2003.However,in the end of the period pupils of grade 5-6 studied twice as much pupils that of 2001.Also,1.6% students admitted in grade 7-8 which remained stable in the next three years and again it passed through upward pattern from 2002 to 2004.

      For zig-zag please use the phrase ebbed and flowed. Overall seems fine. Not pupils remained plateau but percentage of pupils plateaued. Not percentage of grade but students in those grades increased or decreased. Not in the end of the period, at the end of the period. Not passed through upward trend, it witnessed an upward trend from 2002 to 2004.

    sir let me know here in last para,last 2nd line i wrote twice as much but i didnt mention number.is it ok?can i write it in bracket?

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Yes it is fine if you have mentioned the number earlier because examiner would understand from that the next number you are talking about is double of that number.

    The given table compares the number of children in percentages who were given home education in different classes of a certain nation for a period of six years.

    Overall, it can be observed that the proportion of kindergarten pupils educated at home in each of the years were the majority, whereas those in Grade 1-2 were mostly the least. However, the number of the various classes increased over the period.

    In 1999, 2.4% of homeschooled people were in kindergarten being the highest, the percentages of Grade 3-4 and Grade 7-8 persons who attended classes in their houses were 1.6% each,and the proportions of Grade 1-2 and Grade 5-6 stood at 1.5% each. By the year 2001, the amounts of home educated children in kindergarten and Grade 3-4 rose by 0.2% each, while that of homeschooled people in Grade 1-2 and Grade 5-6 dropped by 0.2% each, however the number of children in Grade 7-8 remained constant.

    In 2004, the percentages of each class went up with the number of kindergarten pupils taught at home stood at 2.9%, the proportions for Grade 5-6 and 7-8 rose to 2.6% and 2.5% respectively. The amount of Grade 3-4 home educated people was 2.2% whereas the least number was homeschooled persons in Grade 1-2, being 2.1%.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘2.4% of homeschooled people’ not people, it is not used for children and same for persons. ‘the amounts of home educated children’ it is not the amount but the percentage of, amount is used for absolute numbers. ‘taught at home stood at 2.9%’ this number is for which grade. ‘the least number was homeschooled persons’ the least ratio of homeshcooled children were in grade 1-2. The sentence formation in this attempt is very weak with a lot of grammatical mistakes.

    In recent times,public libraries are becoming more and more redundant due to advances in technology, hence no need to use state resource in maintaining them. I personally disagree with this view since libraries still play some significant roles in our societies. This essay will explore the importance of libraries and need to maintain them with public funds in detail.

    First of all, there are still several functions of libraries despite being in a computer age and one principal benefit is that they serve as a learning and research center. To elaborate further, in most parts of the world, libraries are the only places that provide the conducive environment for people including students and teachers to study and also do their research works.

    Furthermore, libraries can be sourced of income for the state and can also employ large number of people across the globe. To explain further, aside their core function of being a learning center, libraries can be expanded to add things like internet cafe,book and stationery shops which will generate funds for the country and this can create employment for more people.

    To conclude, by dint of the aforementioned observations, I utterly disagree with the point of view that libraries should not be maintained with public funds.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘hence no need to use’ hence there is no need to use. Your introduction is wrong because in the first line it gives the impression that you are stating your opinion that libraries are redundant but in the second line you say you disagree so you need to frame first line in the form that it is believed by other people. ‘can be sourced of income’ source not sourced. ‘utterly’ do not use this word some examiners consider it informal.
