IELTS Academic writing task 1 - Bar Graph

A bar graph (also known as the bar chart) is a graph that contains either horizontal or vertical bars to present data comparison or contrast among categories or variables. In your IELTS Academic task 1, you might get a bar graph that will have numerical values of different variables shown by the length and height of lines or rectangular shapes or equal width. This bar graph will show the quantitative comparison of various data or categories and you are expected to write a report or summary of the diagram. Following are some of the bar graph examples to make thing clear:

» Objectively describe main information presented in the graph.
» Make compare and contrast.
» Report main features without the use of personal opinion.

Most teachers recommend you to write the overview at the end of the introduction. However, you can write it in the conclusion part as well. Do not explicitly write a conclusion like you do in an essay. Also, do not repeat the same overview both in the introduction and conclusion.
