Dian, when you write a Task 1 essay, information accuracy is of the utmost importance. When you present the wrong information in your essay, which can be seen by comparing what you wrote with the illustration provided, you will automatically fail the test because you will not get a passing TA score. You made a serious information dissemination error in this essay when you wrote your opening summary. The information you provided was inaccurate and would have misinformed the reader had this been used for an actual report. The proper summary is:

There are 2 data representations provided in this essay. One is a numerical chart that indicates the total billion dollar value of fish imported to the United States. The second, is a pie chart depicting the percentages of fish imported by the United States from 3 different source countries namely China, Canada, and others. The data covers the individual years of 1988, 1992, and 2000. This essay will report on the provided information from the charts.

The information is about fish "imported" to the US via the 3 countries. It is not about the US exporting fish to those countries. Your information is faulty and therefore, does not properly represent the prompt requirement. You also reported that the information comes from 4 years, indicating a continuous cycle of information sharing. However, the information is broken into specific years within both charts. Therefore, it does not come from 4 years. Rather, it comes from 3 specific years of measurement. A failing TA score will be given in this instance.

Be aware of your grammar rules when it comes to capitalization. Proper names of countries, such as China are always capitalized. You were inconsistent and have a lower case spelling of the country name in the essay. I know, it seems minimal to you, but to the examiner, that is a glaring lack of grammar accuracy and you will lose points accordingly.
