The chart below gives information about global sales of games software, CDs
and DVD or video.
Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information.

You should write at least 150 words.

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

The bar chart shows how sales of CDs, DVD/video, and Games software have
changed among 2000 and 2003. The green bar represents the CDs category
and its the biggest one. The sales of CDs are around 30 to 35 billion per year.
The pink bar in this graph represents the DVD/video category and is the second
biggest due to sales which are around 18 to 31 billion per year. It is very clear
that the category of Games software occupy the third position due to smallest
quantity of money gathered among 2000 and 2003, the sales of Games
software in 2000 were around of 14 billion and in the next years it only
increased approximately 5 billion given a total of amount of 19 billion. Also its
notorious that in 2003 the difference between CDs and DVD/video is too small.
In spite of the CDs category is the biggest, its behavior has showed a
decrease, the bigger sales has been registered at the beginning of the period of
time analyzed.

Eating sweet foods produces acid in the mouth, which can cause tooth decay. (High acid
levels are measured by low pH values)
Describe the information below and discuss the implications for dental health.
You should write at least 150 words.

The graph shows the increase and decrease in the acid level inside the mouth
caused from consumption of sugar. The lines represent three different kinds of
sugar and shows the effect that caused the introduction of these foods in the
acid levels throughout time in the mouth.
As an overview the lines reach the maximum increment in acidity after five
minutes, however the food that has produced the highest levels in acidity is the
cane sugar, while fruit sugar and honey remained between 4 and 5 ph level. It
is quite clear that immediately after the five minutes has passed occurs a
slightly decreasing in acidity levels generated by cane sugar and fruit sugar,
nevertheless honey experimented and steady decreasing for five minutes
more.
It is interesting to observe how fruit sugar and honey returned and maintained
the 7 ph level after 30 minutes.
Cane sugar maintains for more time the acid levels at which tooth decay occurs
than the other two types of sugar, the consumption of cane sugar is the most
dangerous variety of sugar for dental health.

The chart below shows the employment rates across 6 countries in 1995 and
2005.
Summarize the information by choosing and describe the main idea, and make
comparisons where appropriate.
You should write at least 150 words.

The graph shows rates of employment between men and women in 6 countries
making a comparison in two different year, 2005 and 1995. The lapse of time
among this two dates are ten years so we can observe how has changed this
rate in any of this 6 countries. Switzerland and Iceland have the major rate in
2005 for male with an employ with ranges about 78% to 83%. In the other
hand the lowest percentage in 2005 for male category belongs to Australia with
a rate of 68%. While the percentages for UK, New Zealand and USA are about
81% to 83% this is not an important difference for men with work in 2005
category.
Female people with a job in 2005 have lot of variation among the six countries
the first place belongs to Switzerland with a 68 per cent of women working.
And in this category also Australia has the sixth position with a 39% in 2005 for
women with a job.

It is just remarkable the case of USA and New Zealand where the change from
one date to another, was about 14% to 16% of females enrolled in a job.
Another important issue is that in any country suffered a decrease on
employment rate and most of them experimented an important increase of 10
to 13 per cent in female and men category.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?


Businesses should do anything they can to make a profit.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

It is well known that a business that cannot make money is not a business but a charity center and
thats not the goal of a company or organization who has been working to create systems and
processes to obtain money. And also all this features of the company needs financial resources so
any businesses cannot survive in the actual competitive and difficult scenario that we experienced
nowadays without having financial benefits.
A person who directs the way of a business need to know how to reach financials goal through the
creation of a strong platform that supports business activities. This base in the business must be
planned with strategy and thinking about the changing economic environment.
When a business is not creating an adequate profit, business employers needs to act in order of not
lose the control of their place in the market. However I think that when in an organization you need
to start to considerer do anything to achieve your financial goals then you are in the wrong way, it is
clear that the consequences of losing the market or losing our profit are terrible but as I have said
this unwanted things are consequences and we dont have to strength to much ourselves because
of this manner we are going to create a poor environment and inside business world our role is
going to consist in survive. When we have troubles in a company or business we need to re-think
what we are doing wrong and how solve the root of problem without doing this we are going to put
limits in our organization and we are going to lose the opportunity of creating new modes of making
money.
Before think in solve the symptoms it will be necessary re-think what is changing the direction of our
goals and act according to the desire of stopping the deviation and maintained a good oriented way
of doing businesses.

It has been said, "Not everything that is learned is contained in books."


Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge
gained from books.
In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?

You should write at least 250 words.

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

You should give reasons for your answer using your own ideas and
experience

Books has been always considered as an important resource for knowledge, it


is well known that in order to learn new things and develop your imagination
you must read, also reading is one of the best activities to include in our
routine because through reading we can contact with an entire world of new
knowledge and we are going to find a relax time throughout books.
Every time that you read you are acquiring information and data that were
confirmed by people with a dip domain of the subject treated in the book. Thus
you can trust in the information from books but also you can have broad
perspective from certain topic therefore you can use books as guides to
achieve your tasks, you will have hints from the knowledge of scientist or
people specialized in the field of study. However this knowledge is not going to
be complete nor useful until you put it on practice, thats happen when you
confront the reality with your learning. The cycle is complete when you have
knowledge and you know how to apply it, you adapt the information that you
already have with a real situation. Experiences give the opportunity to develop
skills that permit apply new knowledge indeed when you confront a real
situation you are able of test what works better for a certain situation and what
does not work and then you can come back to books looking for what you need
and apply it and test it. Face up the problem it will give to us an extraordinary
feedback and most of the times we are going to realize that there are little
adjustments that we have to do in order of apply our knowledge adequately.
From my perspective acquiring experience is better than obtain knowledge
from books because when you face up problems you gain information key to
solve those problems and also you develop skills confronting real situations I

think that through solving real problem you obtain more benefits and in some
cases it will not be necessary read books.

The bar chart below gives information about the number of students studying Computer
Science at a UK university between 2010 and 2012.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart shows and compares the amount of students enrolled in
Computer Science at a UK university, from 2010 and 2012. The quantity of
students has been divided by gender and foreign or local students, which are
represented with red bars and blue bars respectively.

For the international students as much as in the men and women division was
registered a rise, men started with 20 and were increasing until 39 students in
Computer Science, while in women data was recollected data that presents a
similar result, but with a clear difference in size in contrast with men, because
women began with only 14 students and in 2012 they only reached the number
of 20.
In the case of British home students particularly women showed the highest
value of 45 students in 2012, whereas men were close with 43. British women
won the major presence in Computer Science and they had a sharply difference
with International women by almost twice the quantity.
British men remained close from international men students every year except
in 2010 where the difference between them were about 19 students more for
local students.

The graph below gives information from Annual Energy Outlook 2008 about consumption of
energy in the USA since 1980 with projection until 2030.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The line chart describes the use of different resources of energy in USA, from
1980 with a prediction until 2030. There are 6 sorts of energy that the graph
describes, the x-axis shows the progression in time with intervals of 5 years
and the y-axis describes the amount of units in a scale of quadrillion.
It is clear that petrol and oil as a source of energy occupies the first position
with the largest amount of units along time and also has a higher rate of
growing than the other resources. The prediction for 2030 reports a level of
consumption around 49 Quadrillion units.
In contrast, hydropower, solar/wind and nuclear energy have the lowest
positions just reaching the maximum level in the speculation for 2030 with 9
quadrillion units in nuclear energy but having only 3 quadrillion units in
hydropower.
The region in the middle of the graph is occupied by natural gas and coal
remaining very close among them. The major quantity is 32 quadrillion units
and the minor is 25 quadrillion units for natural gas and coal respectively.
The chart below shows the total number of minutes (in millions) of telephone calls in
Finland, divided into three categories, from 1995 2004.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart illustrates how have changed the consumption of minutes
between 1995 to 2004 in Finland. There are three categories which represent
local, national and mobile calls.
First of all, mobiles calls went up year after year and had a constant increasing
in comparison with the other categories also mobile calls obtained the lowest
rate in every year the amount. It is remarkable that the amount of minutes
from mobile cellphones started almost without presence and rapidly climbed
even in 2004 it was closely to national and international calls with only a
minimum difference in minutes of 400 million.
National calls had a steady growing and occupies the second place with a
maximum value of 10400 million of minutes in 2004. During 10 years was
registered an increasing of almost 4400 million of minutes.
And finally Local calls showed a different behavior because among the first 6
years was present an important jump where in 2001 were reached the amount
of 17000 million minutes, the highest level within the record. Since 2001, it was
reported a decline over the quantity of local calls per year until 2004.

People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new
experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge).
Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

The society has established certain mechanisms to prepare their members in


order of train them in a big variety of professions, one way to get a formal
preparation is having a scholarship education. Attend college or university has
different purposes, nowadays getting enrolled at the university is viewed like
manner of acquire new experiences, increase our knowledge and having a
career preparation. I would argue that the main reason for people that want
apply for a university or college is that throughout a higher education they
would increase their chances to get a better job. For example, when you are
applying for a job in a factory, having a degree related with engineering or
business pays off helpful, because you will have an elevate likelihood of being
considerate for better positions.
Having a degree or a certification is considered like a
In many countries today, the eating habits and lifestyle of children are different from those of
previous generations. Some people say this has had a negative effect on their health.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Healthcare in childhood has changed through the pass of the years and its been debating if
these changes have drawbacks on kids. As far Im concerned, the current lifestyle in
children is causing a damage in their health. The lack of physical activity due to an
excessive use of technology and also a diet with big proportions of carbohydrates and
sutured fats are having a cost for children in our society.
It is well known that movement has great benefits four us. As humans we have been
designed to have movement and the fact that kids remain in front of the cellphone screens
breaks a cycle where through physical activity a child will conserve his health and generates
hungry in them because he has spent energy. When a child eats with hungry generated by
exercise he will look for healthy food instead of just eating sugar and fatty food for whim.
In the other hand an excessive consumption of calories throughout the diet it will caused
that childrens body accumulate fat generating many illness, kids will suffer because they
will have a low self-stem and most important they will have a sick body that will not permit a
good development in their growing. Furthermore, several researchers that if a child suffer
overweight, he has more possibilities to develop obesity and diabetes when he reach the
adulthood.
Finally, everybody have to keep in mind that children are the future generation and they are
our responsibility as a society, so we have to act to avoid that these kind of behavior remain
constant in them.

changed among 2000 and 2003. The green bar represents the CDs category
and its the biggest one. The sales of CDs are around 30 to 35 billion per year.
The pink bar in this graph represents the DVD/video category and is the second
biggest due to sales which are around 18 to 31 billion per year. It is very clear
that the category of Games software occupy the third position due to smallest
quantity of money gathered among 2000 and 2003, the sales of Games
software in 2000 were around of 14 billion and in the next years it only
increased approximately 5 billion given a total of amount of 19 billion. Also its
notorious that in 2003 the difference between CDs and DVD/video is too small.
In spite of the CDs category is the biggest, its behavior has showed a
decrease, the bigger sales has been registered at the beginning of the period of
time analyzed.

Eating sweet foods produces acid in the mouth, which can cause tooth decay. (High acid
levels are measured by low pH values)
Describe the information below and discuss the implications for dental health.
You should write at least 150 words.

The graph shows the increase and decrease in the acid level inside the mouth
caused from consumption of sugar. The lines represent three different kinds of
sugar and shows the effect that caused the introduction of these foods in the
acid levels throughout time in the mouth.
As an overview the lines reach the maximum increment in acidity after five
minutes, however the food that has produced the highest levels in acidity is the
cane sugar, while fruit sugar and honey remained between 4 and 5 ph level. It
is quite clear that immediately after the five minutes has passed occurs a
slightly decreasing in acidity levels generated by cane sugar and fruit sugar,
nevertheless honey experimented and steady decreasing for five minutes
more.
It is interesting to observe how fruit sugar and honey returned and maintained
the 7 ph level after 30 minutes.
Cane sugar maintains for more time the acid levels at which tooth decay occurs
than the other two types of sugar, the consumption of cane sugar is the most
dangerous variety of sugar for dental health.

The chart below shows the employment rates across 6 countries in 1995 and
2005.
Summarize the information by choosing and describe the main idea, and make
comparisons where appropriate.
You should write at least 150 words.

The graph shows rates of employment between men and women in 6 countries
making a comparison in two different year, 2005 and 1995. The lapse of time
among this two dates are ten years so we can observe how has changed this
rate in any of this 6 countries. Switzerland and Iceland have the major rate in
2005 for male with an employ with ranges about 78% to 83%. In the other
hand the lowest percentage in 2005 for male category belongs to Australia with
a rate of 68%. While the percentages for UK, New Zealand and USA are about
81% to 83% this is not an important difference for men with work in 2005
category.
Female people with a job in 2005 have lot of variation among the six countries
the first place belongs to Switzerland with a 68 per cent of women working.
And in this category also Australia has the sixth position with a 39% in 2005 for
women with a job.
It is just remarkable the case of USA and New Zealand where the change from
one date to another, was about 14% to 16% of females enrolled in a job.
Another important issue is that in any country suffered a decrease on
employment rate and most of them experimented an important increase of 10
to 13 per cent in female and men category.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?


Businesses should do anything they can to make a profit.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

It is well known that a business that cannot make money is not a business but a charity center and
thats not the goal of a company or organization who has been working to create systems and
processes to obtain money. And also all this features of the company needs financial resources so
any businesses cannot survive in the actual competitive and difficult scenario that we experienced
nowadays without having financial benefits.
A person who directs the way of a business need to know how to reach financials goal through the
creation of a strong platform that supports business activities. This base in the business must be
planned with strategy and thinking about the changing economic environment.
When a business is not creating an adequate profit, business employers needs to act in order of not
lose the control of their place in the market. However I think that when in an organization you need
to start to considerer do anything to achieve your financial goals then you are in the wrong way, it is
clear that the consequences of losing the market or losing our profit are terrible but as I have said
this unwanted things are consequences and we dont have to strength to much ourselves because
of this manner we are going to create a poor environment and inside business world our role is
going to consist in survive. When we have troubles in a company or business we need to re-think
what we are doing wrong and how solve the root of problem without doing this we are going to put
limits in our organization and we are going to lose the opportunity of creating new modes of making
money.
Before think in solve the symptoms it will be necessary re-think what is changing the direction of our
goals and act according to the desire of stopping the deviation and maintained a good oriented way
of doing businesses.

You should give reasons for your answer using your own ideas and
experience

Books has been always considered as an important resource for knowledge, it


is well known that in order to learn new things and develop your imagination
you must read, also reading is one of the best activities to include in our
routine because through reading we can contact with an entire world of new
knowledge and we are going to find a relax time throughout books.
Every time that you read you are acquiring information and data that were
confirmed by people with a dip domain of the subject treated in the book. Thus
you can trust in the information from books but also you can have broad
perspective from certain topic therefore you can use books as guides to
achieve your tasks, you will have hints from the knowledge of scientist or
people specialized in the field of study. However this knowledge is not going to
be complete nor useful until you put it on practice, thats happen when you
confront the reality with your learning. The cycle is complete when you have
knowledge and you know how to apply it, you adapt the information that you
already have with a real situation. Experiences give the opportunity to develop
skills that permit apply new knowledge indeed when you confront a real
situation you are able of test what works better for a certain situation and what
does not work and then you can come back to books looking for what you need
and apply it and test it. Face up the problem it will give to us an extraordinary
feedback and most of the times we are going to realize that there are little
adjustments that we have to do in order of apply our knowledge adequately.
From my perspective acquiring experience is better than obtain knowledge
from books because when you face up problems you gain information key to
solve those problems and also you develop skills confronting real situations I
think that through solving real problem you obtain more benefits and in some
cases it will not be necessary read books.

The bar chart below gives information about the number of students studying Computer
Science at a UK university between 2010 and 2012.

comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart shows and compares the amount of students enrolled in
Computer Science at a UK university, from 2010 and 2012. The quantity of
students has been divided by gender and foreign or local students, which are
represented with red bars and blue bars respectively.
For the international students as much as in the men and women division was
registered a rise, men started with 20 and were increasing until 39 students in
Computer Science, while in women data was recollected data that presents a
similar result, but with a clear difference in size in contrast with men, because
women began with only 14 students and in 2012 they only reached the number
of 20.
In the case of British home students particularly women showed the highest
value of 45 students in 2012, whereas men were close with 43. British women
won the major presence in Computer Science and they had a sharply difference
with International women by almost twice the quantity.
British men remained close from international men students every year except
in 2010 where the difference between them were about 19 students more for
local students.

The graph below gives information from Annual Energy Outlook 2008 about consumption of
energy in the USA since 1980 with projection until 2030.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The line chart describes the use of different resources of energy in USA, from
1980 with a prediction until 2030. There are 6 sorts of energy that the graph
describes, the x-axis shows the progression in time with intervals of 5 years
and the y-axis describes the amount of units in a scale of quadrillion.
It is clear that petrol and oil as a source of energy occupies the first position
with the largest amount of units along time and also has a higher rate of
growing than the other resources. The prediction for 2030 reports a level of
consumption around 49 Quadrillion units.
In contrast, hydropower, solar/wind and nuclear energy have the lowest
positions just reaching the maximum level in the speculation for 2030 with 9
quadrillion units in nuclear energy but having only 3 quadrillion units in
hydropower.

The region in the middle of the graph is occupied by natural gas and coal
remaining very close among them. The major quantity is 32 quadrillion units
and the minor is 25 quadrillion units for natural gas and coal respectively.

Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart illustrates how have changed the consumption of minutes
between 1995 to 2004 in Finland. There are three categories which represent
local, national and mobile calls.
First of all, mobiles calls went up year after year and had a constant increasing
in comparison with the other categories also mobile calls obtained the lowest
rate in every year the amount. It is remarkable that the amount of minutes
from mobile cellphones started almost without presence and rapidly climbed
even in 2004 it was closely to national and international calls with only a
minimum difference in minutes of 400 million.
National calls had a steady growing and occupies the second place with a
maximum value of 10400 million of minutes in 2004. During 10 years was
registered an increasing of almost 4400 million of minutes.

And finally Local calls showed a different behavior because among the first 6
years was present an important jump where in 2001 were reached the amount
of 17000 million minutes, the highest level within the record. Since 2001, it was
reported a decline over the quantity of local calls per year until 2004.

People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new
experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge).
Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

The society has established certain mechanisms to prepare their members in


order of train them in a big variety of professions, one way to get a formal
preparation is having a scholarship education. Attend college or university has
different purposes, nowadays getting enrolled at the university is viewed like
manner of acquire new experiences, increase our knowledge and having a
career preparation. I would argue that the main reason for people that want
apply for a university or college is that throughout a higher education they
would increase their chances to get a better job. For example, when you are
applying for a job in a factory, having a degree related with engineering or
business pays off helpful, because you will have an elevate likelihood of being
considerate for better positions.
Having a degree or a certification is considered like a
In many countries today, the eating habits and lifestyle of children are different from those of
previous generations. Some people say this has had a negative effect on their health.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Healthcare in childhood has changed through the pass of the years and its been debating if
these changes have drawbacks on kids. As far Im concerned, the current lifestyle in
children is causing a damage in their health. The lack of physical activity due to an
excessive use of technology and also a diet with big proportions of carbohydrates and
sutured fats are having a cost for children in our society.
It is well known that movement has great benefits four us. As humans we have been
designed to have movement and the fact that kids remain in front of the cellphone screens
breaks a cycle where through physical activity a child will conserve his health and generates
hungry in them because he has spent energy. When a child eats with hungry generated by
exercise he will look for healthy food instead of just eating sugar and fatty food for whim.
In the other hand an excessive consumption of calories throughout the diet it will caused
that childrens body accumulate fat generating many illness, kids will suffer because they
will have a low self-stem and most important they will have a sick body that will not permit a
good development in their growing. Furthermore, several researchers that if a child suffer
overweight, he has more possibilities to develop obesity and diabetes when he reach the
adulthood.

Finally, everybody have to keep in mind that children are the future generation and they are
our responsibility as a society, so we have to act to avoid that these kind of behavior remain
constant in them.

slightly decreasing in acidity levels generated by cane sugar and fruit sugar,
nevertheless honey experimented and steady decreasing for five minutes
more.
It is interesting to observe how fruit sugar and honey returned and maintained
the 7 ph level after 30 minutes.
Cane sugar maintains for more time the acid levels at which tooth decay occurs
than the other two types of sugar, the consumption of cane sugar is the most
dangerous variety of sugar for dental health.

The chart below shows the employment rates across 6 countries in 1995 and
2005.
Summarize the information by choosing and describe the main idea, and make
comparisons where appropriate.
You should write at least 150 words.

The graph shows rates of employment between men and women in 6 countries
making a comparison in two different year, 2005 and 1995. The lapse of time
among this two dates are ten years so we can observe how has changed this
rate in any of this 6 countries. Switzerland and Iceland have the major rate in
2005 for male with an employ with ranges about 78% to 83%. In the other
hand the lowest percentage in 2005 for male category belongs to Australia with
a rate of 68%. While the percentages for UK, New Zealand and USA are about
81% to 83% this is not an important difference for men with work in 2005
category.
Female people with a job in 2005 have lot of variation among the six countries
the first place belongs to Switzerland with a 68 per cent of women working.
And in this category also Australia has the sixth position with a 39% in 2005 for
women with a job.

It is just remarkable the case of USA and New Zealand where the change from
one date to another, was about 14% to 16% of females enrolled in a job.
Another important issue is that in any country suffered a decrease on
employment rate and most of them experimented an important increase of 10
to 13 per cent in female and men category.

Businesses should do anything they can to make a profit.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

It is well known that a business that cannot make money is not a business but a charity center and
thats not the goal of a company or organization who has been working to create systems and
processes to obtain money. And also all this features of the company needs financial resources so
any businesses cannot survive in the actual competitive and difficult scenario that we experienced
nowadays without having financial benefits.
A person who directs the way of a business need to know how to reach financials goal through the
creation of a strong platform that supports business activities. This base in the business must be
planned with strategy and thinking about the changing economic environment.
When a business is not creating an adequate profit, business employers needs to act in order of not
lose the control of their place in the market. However I think that when in an organization you need
to start to considerer do anything to achieve your financial goals then you are in the wrong way, it is
clear that the consequences of losing the market or losing our profit are terrible but as I have said
this unwanted things are consequences and we dont have to strength to much ourselves because
of this manner we are going to create a poor environment and inside business world our role is
going to consist in survive. When we have troubles in a company or business we need to re-think
what we are doing wrong and how solve the root of problem without doing this we are going to put
limits in our organization and we are going to lose the opportunity of creating new modes of making
money.
Before think in solve the symptoms it will be necessary re-think what is changing the direction of our
goals and act according to the desire of stopping the deviation and maintained a good oriented way
of doing businesses.

It has been said, "Not everything that is learned is contained in books."


Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge
gained from books.
In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?

You should write at least 250 words.

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

You should give reasons for your answer using your own ideas and
experience

Books has been always considered as an important resource for knowledge, it


is well known that in order to learn new things and develop your imagination
you must read, also reading is one of the best activities to include in our
routine because through reading we can contact with an entire world of new
knowledge and we are going to find a relax time throughout books.
Every time that you read you are acquiring information and data that were
confirmed by people with a dip domain of the subject treated in the book. Thus
you can trust in the information from books but also you can have broad
perspective from certain topic therefore you can use books as guides to
achieve your tasks, you will have hints from the knowledge of scientist or
people specialized in the field of study. However this knowledge is not going to
be complete nor useful until you put it on practice, thats happen when you
confront the reality with your learning. The cycle is complete when you have
knowledge and you know how to apply it, you adapt the information that you
already have with a real situation. Experiences give the opportunity to develop
skills that permit apply new knowledge indeed when you confront a real
situation you are able of test what works better for a certain situation and what
does not work and then you can come back to books looking for what you need
and apply it and test it. Face up the problem it will give to us an extraordinary
feedback and most of the times we are going to realize that there are little
adjustments that we have to do in order of apply our knowledge adequately.
From my perspective acquiring experience is better than obtain knowledge
from books because when you face up problems you gain information key to
solve those problems and also you develop skills confronting real situations I

think that through solving real problem you obtain more benefits and in some
cases it will not be necessary read books.

The bar chart below gives information about the number of students studying Computer
Science at a UK university between 2010 and 2012.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart shows and compares the amount of students enrolled in
Computer Science at a UK university, from 2010 and 2012. The quantity of
students has been divided by gender and foreign or local students, which are
represented with red bars and blue bars respectively.

For the international students as much as in the men and women division was
registered a rise, men started with 20 and were increasing until 39 students in
Computer Science, while in women data was recollected data that presents a
similar result, but with a clear difference in size in contrast with men, because
women began with only 14 students and in 2012 they only reached the number
of 20.
In the case of British home students particularly women showed the highest
value of 45 students in 2012, whereas men were close with 43. British women
won the major presence in Computer Science and they had a sharply difference
with International women by almost twice the quantity.
British men remained close from international men students every year except
in 2010 where the difference between them were about 19 students more for
local students.

The graph below gives information from Annual Energy Outlook 2008 about consumption of
energy in the USA since 1980 with projection until 2030.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The line chart describes the use of different resources of energy in USA, from
1980 with a prediction until 2030. There are 6 sorts of energy that the graph
describes, the x-axis shows the progression in time with intervals of 5 years
and the y-axis describes the amount of units in a scale of quadrillion.
It is clear that petrol and oil as a source of energy occupies the first position
with the largest amount of units along time and also has a higher rate of
growing than the other resources. The prediction for 2030 reports a level of
consumption around 49 Quadrillion units.
In contrast, hydropower, solar/wind and nuclear energy have the lowest
positions just reaching the maximum level in the speculation for 2030 with 9
quadrillion units in nuclear energy but having only 3 quadrillion units in
hydropower.
The region in the middle of the graph is occupied by natural gas and coal
remaining very close among them. The major quantity is 32 quadrillion units
and the minor is 25 quadrillion units for natural gas and coal respectively.

The bar chart illustrates how have changed the consumption of minutes
between 1995 to 2004 in Finland. There are three categories which represent
local, national and mobile calls.
First of all, mobiles calls went up year after year and had a constant increasing
in comparison with the other categories also mobile calls obtained the lowest
rate in every year the amount. It is remarkable that the amount of minutes
from mobile cellphones started almost without presence and rapidly climbed
even in 2004 it was closely to national and international calls with only a
minimum difference in minutes of 400 million.
National calls had a steady growing and occupies the second place with a
maximum value of 10400 million of minutes in 2004. During 10 years was
registered an increasing of almost 4400 million of minutes.
And finally Local calls showed a different behavior because among the first 6
years was present an important jump where in 2001 were reached the amount
of 17000 million minutes, the highest level within the record. Since 2001, it was
reported a decline over the quantity of local calls per year until 2004.

People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new
experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge).
Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

The society has established certain mechanisms to prepare their members in


order of train them in a big variety of professions, one way to get a formal
preparation is having a scholarship education. Attend college or university has
different purposes, nowadays getting enrolled at the university is viewed like
manner of acquire new experiences, increase our knowledge and having a
career preparation. I would argue that the main reason for people that want
apply for a university or college is that throughout a higher education they
would increase their chances to get a better job. For example, when you are
applying for a job in a factory, having a degree related with engineering or
business pays off helpful, because you will have an elevate likelihood of being
considerate for better positions.
Having a degree or a certification is considered like a
In many countries today, the eating habits and lifestyle of children are different from those of
previous generations. Some people say this has had a negative effect on their health.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Healthcare in childhood has changed through the pass of the years and its been debating if
these changes have drawbacks on kids. As far Im concerned, the current lifestyle in
children is causing a damage in their health. The lack of physical activity due to an
excessive use of technology and also a diet with big proportions of carbohydrates and
sutured fats are having a cost for children in our society.
It is well known that movement has great benefits four us. As humans we have been
designed to have movement and the fact that kids remain in front of the cellphone screens
breaks a cycle where through physical activity a child will conserve his health and generates
hungry in them because he has spent energy. When a child eats with hungry generated by
exercise he will look for healthy food instead of just eating sugar and fatty food for whim.
In the other hand an excessive consumption of calories throughout the diet it will caused
that childrens body accumulate fat generating many illness, kids will suffer because they
will have a low self-stem and most important they will have a sick body that will not permit a
good development in their growing. Furthermore, several researchers that if a child suffer
overweight, he has more possibilities to develop obesity and diabetes when he reach the
adulthood.
Finally, everybody have to keep in mind that children are the future generation and they are
our responsibility as a society, so we have to act to avoid that these kind of behavior remain
constant in them.

The chart below gives information about global sales of games software, CDs
and DVD or video.
Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information.

You should write at least 150 words.

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

The bar chart shows how sales of CDs, DVD/video, and Games software have
changed among 2000 and 2003. The green bar represents the CDs category
and its the biggest one. The sales of CDs are around 30 to 35 billion per year.
The pink bar in this graph represents the DVD/video category and is the second
biggest due to sales which are around 18 to 31 billion per year. It is very clear
that the category of Games software occupy the third position due to smallest
quantity of money gathered among 2000 and 2003, the sales of Games
software in 2000 were around of 14 billion and in the next years it only
increased approximately 5 billion given a total of amount of 19 billion. Also its
notorious that in 2003 the difference between CDs and DVD/video is too small.
In spite of the CDs category is the biggest, its behavior has showed a
decrease, the bigger sales has been registered at the beginning of the period of
time analyzed.

It is just remarkable the case of USA and New Zealand where the change from
one date to another, was about 14% to 16% of females enrolled in a job.
Another important issue is that in any country suffered a decrease on
employment rate and most of them experimented an important increase of 10
to 13 per cent in female and men category.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?


Businesses should do anything they can to make a profit.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

It is well known that a business that cannot make money is not a business but a charity center and
thats not the goal of a company or organization who has been working to create systems and
processes to obtain money. And also all this features of the company needs financial resources so
any businesses cannot survive in the actual competitive and difficult scenario that we experienced
nowadays without having financial benefits.
A person who directs the way of a business need to know how to reach financials goal through the
creation of a strong platform that supports business activities. This base in the business must be
planned with strategy and thinking about the changing economic environment.
When a business is not creating an adequate profit, business employers needs to act in order of not
lose the control of their place in the market. However I think that when in an organization you need
to start to considerer do anything to achieve your financial goals then you are in the wrong way, it is
clear that the consequences of losing the market or losing our profit are terrible but as I have said
this unwanted things are consequences and we dont have to strength to much ourselves because
of this manner we are going to create a poor environment and inside business world our role is
going to consist in survive. When we have troubles in a company or business we need to re-think
what we are doing wrong and how solve the root of problem without doing this we are going to put
limits in our organization and we are going to lose the opportunity of creating new modes of making
money.
Before think in solve the symptoms it will be necessary re-think what is changing the direction of our
goals and act according to the desire of stopping the deviation and maintained a good oriented way
of doing businesses.

It has been said, "Not everything that is learned is contained in books."


Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge
gained from books.
In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?

You should write at least 250 words.

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

You should give reasons for your answer using your own ideas and
experience

Books has been always considered as an important resource for knowledge, it


is well known that in order to learn new things and develop your imagination
you must read, also reading is one of the best activities to include in our
routine because through reading we can contact with an entire world of new
knowledge and we are going to find a relax time throughout books.
Every time that you read you are acquiring information and data that were
confirmed by people with a dip domain of the subject treated in the book. Thus
you can trust in the information from books but also you can have broad
perspective from certain topic therefore you can use books as guides to
achieve your tasks, you will have hints from the knowledge of scientist or
people specialized in the field of study. However this knowledge is not going to
be complete nor useful until you put it on practice, thats happen when you
confront the reality with your learning. The cycle is complete when you have
knowledge and you know how to apply it, you adapt the information that you
already have with a real situation. Experiences give the opportunity to develop
skills that permit apply new knowledge indeed when you confront a real
situation you are able of test what works better for a certain situation and what
does not work and then you can come back to books looking for what you need
and apply it and test it. Face up the problem it will give to us an extraordinary
feedback and most of the times we are going to realize that there are little
adjustments that we have to do in order of apply our knowledge adequately.
From my perspective acquiring experience is better than obtain knowledge
from books because when you face up problems you gain information key to
solve those problems and also you develop skills confronting real situations I
think that through solving real problem you obtain more benefits and in some
cases it will not be necessary read books.

The bar chart below gives information about the number of students studying Computer
Science at a UK university between 2010 and 2012.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart shows and compares the amount of students enrolled in
Computer Science at a UK university, from 2010 and 2012. The quantity of
students has been divided by gender and foreign or local students, which are
represented with red bars and blue bars respectively.
For the international students as much as in the men and women division was
registered a rise, men started with 20 and were increasing until 39 students in
Computer Science, while in women data was recollected data that presents a
similar result, but with a clear difference in size in contrast with men, because
women began with only 14 students and in 2012 they only reached the number
of 20.
In the case of British home students particularly women showed the highest
value of 45 students in 2012, whereas men were close with 43. British women
won the major presence in Computer Science and they had a sharply difference
with International women by almost twice the quantity.
British men remained close from international men students every year except
in 2010 where the difference between them were about 19 students more for
local students.

The graph below gives information from Annual Energy Outlook 2008 about consumption of
energy in the USA since 1980 with projection until 2030.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The line chart describes the use of different resources of energy in USA, from
1980 with a prediction until 2030. There are 6 sorts of energy that the graph
describes, the x-axis shows the progression in time with intervals of 5 years
and the y-axis describes the amount of units in a scale of quadrillion.
It is clear that petrol and oil as a source of energy occupies the first position
with the largest amount of units along time and also has a higher rate of
growing than the other resources. The prediction for 2030 reports a level of
consumption around 49 Quadrillion units.
In contrast, hydropower, solar/wind and nuclear energy have the lowest
positions just reaching the maximum level in the speculation for 2030 with 9
quadrillion units in nuclear energy but having only 3 quadrillion units in
hydropower.

The region in the middle of the graph is occupied by natural gas and coal
remaining very close among them. The major quantity is 32 quadrillion units
and the minor is 25 quadrillion units for natural gas and coal respectively.
The chart below shows the total number of minutes (in millions) of telephone calls in
Finland, divided into three categories, from 1995 2004.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make
comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The bar chart illustrates how have changed the consumption of minutes
between 1995 to 2004 in Finland. There are three categories which represent
local, national and mobile calls.
First of all, mobiles calls went up year after year and had a constant increasing
in comparison with the other categories also mobile calls obtained the lowest
rate in every year the amount. It is remarkable that the amount of minutes
from mobile cellphones started almost without presence and rapidly climbed
even in 2004 it was closely to national and international calls with only a
minimum difference in minutes of 400 million.
National calls had a steady growing and occupies the second place with a
maximum value of 10400 million of minutes in 2004. During 10 years was
registered an increasing of almost 4400 million of minutes.

And finally Local calls showed a different behavior because among the first 6
years was present an important jump where in 2001 were reached the amount
of 17000 million minutes, the highest level within the record. Since 2001, it was
reported a decline over the quantity of local calls per year until 2004.

People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new
experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge).
Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

The society has established certain mechanisms to prepare their members in


order of train them in a big variety of professions, one way to get a formal
preparation is having a scholarship education. Attend college or university has
different purposes, nowadays getting enrolled at the university is viewed like
manner of acquire new experiences, increase our knowledge and having a
career preparation. I would argue that the main reason for people that want
apply for a university or college is that throughout a higher education they
would increase their chances to get a better job. For example, when you are
applying for a job in a factory, having a degree related with engineering or
business pays off helpful, because you will have an elevate likelihood of being
considerate for better positions.
Having a degree or a certification is considered like a
In many countries today, the eating habits and lifestyle of children are different from those of
previous generations. Some people say this has had a negative effect on their health.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Healthcare in childhood has changed through the pass of the years and its been debating if
these changes have drawbacks on kids. As far Im concerned, the current lifestyle in
children is causing a damage in their health. The lack of physical activity due to an
excessive use of technology and also a diet with big proportions of carbohydrates and
sutured fats are having a cost for children in our society.
It is well known that movement has great benefits four us. As humans we have been
designed to have movement and the fact that kids remain in front of the cellphone screens
breaks a cycle where through physical activity a child will conserve his health and generates
hungry in them because he has spent energy. When a child eats with hungry generated by
exercise he will look for healthy food instead of just eating sugar and fatty food for whim.
In the other hand an excessive consumption of calories throughout the diet it will caused
that childrens body accumulate fat generating many illness, kids will suffer because they
will have a low self-stem and most important they will have a sick body that will not permit a
good development in their growing. Furthermore, several researchers that if a child suffer
overweight, he has more possibilities to develop obesity and diabetes when he reach the
adulthood.

Finally, everybody have to keep in mind that children are the future generation and they are
our responsibility as a society, so we have to act to avoid that these kind of behavior remain
constant in them.
