@wuchunhung0927 You can probably score a 4 with this essay. The reason that I believe you can only get this score is because you did not accurately use all of the data that was provided in the pie charts and you did not accurately represent the requirements of the overview statement either.

The opening paragraph, also known as the summary overview, should have included a reference to the 6 countries that were to be compared, as well as the instructions regarding how the information given is to be compared and presented to the reader. Without these outline details, your summary was incomplete and not so informative to the reader.

You made references to possible figures on some parts of your essay. That is not necessary because the precise percentages were presented. Therefore, a sense of factual presentation should have been found in the paragraphs where the information is discussed. By the way, you left out a tremendous amount of information from the pie charts in your essay. That is why you feel like it is redundant and not so informative. Grouping the discussion by section of water use was a good move on your part. Not providing the percentages per country was a mistake. There were a number of observation and comparison points that you missed out on presenting because of that error in your presentation.

Not all of your paragraphs are complete. As far as the Coherence and Cohesiveness requirement of the essay is concerned, you are required to present complete paragraphs in order to prove a developed discussion. A complete paragraph carries a minimum of 3, maximum of 5 sentences with which to allow you to completely and accurately present the information previously provided.
