Andri, you have presented some pretty good reasons for the discussion of the prompt. You have some grammar issues that the others have already addressed so I won't get into that anymore in my response. What I would like to call your attention to however, is the way that you discussed the essay. There is a problem with the conclusion that you presented.

I do not know if your tutor told you this or not but, you have to remember a very important point about developing your conclusion. You must never introduce new ideas or discuss an opinion within the concluding paragraph. Those points should always be discussed in a separate paragraph from the conclusion. The conclusion should only contain a proper summary of the discussion, restated prompt, and your personal opinion of the topic, if warranted. That said, the conclusion of this essay doesn't follow that requirement and thus, will lose you point during an actual test. Please practice writing the proper conclusion topics and format in your succeeding practice essays in order to ensure that you do not make the same mistake during the actual test.
