Video: Overview of the different graphic types
You are assessed on 4 criteria. One of them is Task Achievement. Task Achievement refers to the content of your answer. In this lesson, we will look at the different graphic types, and what examiners information your answer should include.
Many students lose marks because they miss an essential piece of information. For example, writing about 5 countries if 6 countries are mentioned. If you do not include these key features, you cannot get above a band 4 for Task Achievement (see public band descriptors below). This often happens when students run out of time- so give yourself enough time to do this task.
Remember, we recommend spending 20-25 minutes on task 1.
