Sample Writing Task 1

Graduate numbers rose during the 15 years and reached their highest levels in 2007, but there were always more female than male graduates. In 1992, the difference was less marked, with just over 70,000 males and about 100,000 females. However, by 2007 there had been more significant growth in female numbers. That year, they rose to 147,000, compared to just 95,000 males. Thus the gap between the number of male and female graduates had widened.

A more detailed look at the graph reveals that the overall growth in numbers was not always steady. Between 1992 and 1995, there was a slight increase. That was followed by a period of about five years, when numbers fell, then flattened out at just over 70,000 for men and 100,000 for women. After 2000, however, graduate numbers saw their strongest growth rate, and this was well above the increases that had been seen in the early 1990s.

Clearly, there were similar trends for male and female graduates over this period, but the number of women graduating increased at a higher rate than the number of men.

Sample Writing Task 2

Style of dress in work place is a very important for many organization. They encourage their employees to wear casual clothes or even designer clothes to look more smart and beauty, while others prefer to improve the performance of their employees. The latter believe that the quality of working is more valuable. So, which one is more important?

Many of famous organizations assign a remarkable budget to the clothes and uniforms of their members. According to their annual estimate indices, their success directly is in relation with members appearance. Moreover, those indices show that people have tendency more to that organization have attraction in the appearance. It seems that smart dresses and good looking in work place not only increase the success, but also they make there more beautiful and it may lead to better performance of the members.

On the other hand, other organizations value the efficiency of their employees, more. In their belief, the performance of each one is in prior of their looking. For example, employees in many companies wear a very simple uniform, however the mentioned companies program many professional courses to enhance the employees ability.

Personally, I believe the question depends on the organization activities. I mean the ones are directly working with people, like shopping centers and department stores, hospitals, and so on, value the appearance more. People expect the beauty and they have to answer to this request in the best manner. In contrast with this the organizations, which work with people indirectly, tend to focus on the performance. Employees of companies, workshops and so on have to improve their ability, not to dress smartly.

Other Sample Writing Task 2

Smart dressing style of workers is creating a controversy assumption .Few organizations are supporting this while others are opposing it and confessing as efficiency of work should be considered than their look.I believe,good looking appearance of workers is important,nevertheless,quality of work also plays a crucial role.

Now a days,lots of diversification can be seen in technology which is allowing people to work from their places without reaching to company.For instance,work from home.In such situations,candidates capacity will be more considered than how they appear.There are variety of facilities available in present day as per above example,where the customers,co-workers and companies don’t even see their employees,they are only focusing on the quality of work done by them at such conditions people are not judged on their outward look,which most people are contradicting.

On the other hand,some companies offer jobs and gather their staff under one roof at this place they are expecting their employees to look greatly.To exemplify,regions where people usually work there according to schedules and return back to their residence after work.Organizations are very restricted on this concern because having a good appearance will not only make them feel good but also their surrounding.Which is prioritized for healthy environment in working place,by doing so,companies are presuming that they can excel in their work throughout the day.Moreover,exquisite out look when meeting other organizations will create a impression in positive manner and business can also be developed inadvertently.

To conclude,depending up on the categories people are working they should be very cautious about how they are presenting themselves and however work quality will be preferred more than anything.
