Hello mariana, I have taken the liberty to edit the whole essay for you. Here is your essay :

The charts illustrates the data regarding the water usage for three different purposes ...

Firstly, the developing areas such as South America, Africa, Central and South East Asia have the largest consumption of water for agricultural use. This accounts for about four fifth of the total usage for these localities with Central Asia having the highest percentage of 88%. Europe and North America, however, have much less usage at 32% and 39% respectively.

On the other hand, the usage of water for industries is most significant in developed areas like North America at 48% and Europe having the greatest amount of 53%. In contrast, this percentage is extremely low from 12% to 5% usage for the other developing areas.

When it comes to the domestic category, compared to the other two usages of water, there is tenfold drop in the percentage to 7% for Central and South East Asia, 9% for Africa and 13% to 19% for the three other locations.

Some advice I would give to you is that :
1. You should mention the actual numbers and percentages from the charts.
2. No need to write personal opinions like (developed or developing areas).
3. Learn to use more synonyms.
4. It is not necessary to give a conclusion.
What matters is the details and comparisons of the figures in the charts.

For more help use these websites :
1. ielts material (Good for writing task 1 and 2 samples)
2. ielts-mentor (Good for speaking samples)
Use these websites to read high band score samples and learn from them.
Practice and practice. By the the way I got 7.5 in IELTS and currently trying to get study visa for Canada. Wish me luck and pray for me.

Hi Mariana13!!

The way you write this essay depends on what it's for. I'm presuming it's a regular school/college essay.

The Pie chart given below shows the distribution of water for agricultural, industrial and domestic usage in six major regions of the world.

Firstly, looking at the developing areas such as South America, Africa, Central and South East Asia, it is evident that major potion of the available water ie. over 70-80% is utilized for agriculture. Water for industrial and domestic use is only a small fraction of the whole. This gives us an idea about the majority of the population is involved in agriculture for the livelihood.

The developed regions such as North America and Europe show a different picture. The total available water is more uniformly distributed for all the fields, with maximum utilization by Industries. This indirectly tells us that most of the population is involved in skilled labour.

This chart thus makes the comparison of developed and developing nations easier using a simple modality like water usage.
Like Doel says above, you can add more content by stating the % of water utilized.

Ana, the instructions clearly state that you are to present at least 150 words, nothing less. Yet you are presenting a 139 word count essay for our review here. Be cognizant of the instructions given in the test. Submitting an essay that is less than the word count will result in an automatic failure during the actual test. The mere lack of word requirement for this essay already tells me that the essay has major content issues and does not fully present the information in the strongest manner possible. When tasked to write at least 150 words, you should strive to submit an essay that is at least 175 - 200 words long in order to have a better chance of proving your task accuracy, lexical resource abilities, grammar accuracy / range, and most importantly, your coherence and cohesiveness in providing the summary report. Your work suffered tremendously due to your carelessness. Remember, always check the word count. That is the vital first step in passing this test.
