Model Answer 1:
The plans, A and B, illustrate the refurbishment of a health centre in two different years (2005 and the present). Overall, there has been massive changes in the health centre over the period given. The centre has clearly been enlarged and its layout has also been changed to meet the demand.
In 2005, the main entrance was located in front of the health centre with 12 car parking spaces outside. From the main entrance, there were some seats along the hallway for clients to wait for consultation. At the end of the hallway, there was a reception desk for clients to register. In addition, an office and a consultation room were located on the left of the desk, and on its right, there were two more consultation rooms. Finally, a physiotherapy room was built behind the desk.
In the present day, the layout of the centre has been revised. The main entrance is now situated in the left corner of the centre with a reception desk and an area for children to play. Meanwhile, there is a large common area in the middle of the centre for clients where seats are available alongside the wall. All original rooms and a newly added room called the minor operations room, on the other hand, are now allocated to the common area. Finally, the size of the car park increased by twice with 30 spaces.

Sample Answer 2:
The plans illustrate the development of a health centre from 2005 to the present day. Overall, it is clear that some major changes have been taken place to the health centre.
First of all, the only room which remained unchanged in health centre since 2005 is physiotherapy room. There is an extra minor operations room being added next to it, thus the size of the garden has decreased. In the present day, there are more seats available to the patients than that in 2005. In addition, there are 4 consulting rooms now compared to that in the year 2005 which had only 3 rooms. The main entrance is, noticeably, shifted to the bottom left corner of the health centre with additional children's play area. The reception desk is now placed near the entrance which is opposite of children's play area.
Lastly, the car park slots have been increased to 30 spaces in the present day from only 12 spaces in the year 2005.

Sample Answer 3:
The two illustrations show the previous and the latest plans of a health centre in 2005 and in the present day.
In 2005, the main entrance was located in front of the health centre with 12 car parking spaces outside. From the main entrance, there were a number of seats where clients could sit and wait for consultation. Moreover, there were three large consulting rooms and an office where clients could be accommodated and a reception desk in the far corner from the entrance. From there, there was a physiotherapy room, located behind the reception desk where clients undergo musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
In the present day plan, the health centre is revised in this way. Both the entrance and reception desk are transferred in the left corner of the health centre and a playing area created opposite to the reception desk. They added another room for consulting purposes but not as large as the previous plan before. Likewise, spaces are expanded for car parking up to 30
slots. While the office and the physiotherapy room are in their original structure, a minor operating room is added beside the latter. To sum up, the present day plan is constructed with more rooms added although smaller in size compared in the past.
