Thank you for asking this question.

Following tips can help you ace your scores in Academic Writing Task 1: 

-> You need to write 3-4 paragraphs within 150 words.

-> In the initial paragraph, you need to paraphrase the question. 

-> Decide if the graph you are describing is a comparison, progression or both. You will need to use the appropriate language for each type.

-> Change noun and adjectives phrases into verbs and adverbs to create a range of expressions. Also, try to learn a few different ways to write the same thing so you don’t have to rewrite yourself. Remember you will be marked on your language range and accuracy.

-> Describe the most general trends in second paragraph, including the most striking characteristics.

-> You need to add linker to help your response to help with its cohesion and coherence.

-> In the 3rd paragraph you need to give a more detailed description.  You still need to focus on main trends, but focus more on elements within each part of the graph. Add data to support your information.

-> Don’t describe all small details as this creates lists which sound mechanical.

-> You don’t have to write a conclusion, but it makes the writing seem more complete if you do.

-> Don’t forget spelling and punctuation count towards accuracy.

Hope this does the needful.

Thanks and regards,
