Band 7.5 IELTS report sample

The two pie charts show the contribution of various sources to the generation of electricity in Scotland in two years – last year and 20 years before that. Overall, while the proportion of the given energy sectors differ in the two years, coal, gas, and nuclear represent the most significant sources of energy in both the given periods of time. Coal was the most significant source of energy in both years accounting for 41% and 32% of the energy generated in 2001 and 2021. The contribution of gas didn’t change much and in both years and was nearly 22%. Meanwhile, the contribution of nuclear power increased by almost 7% from 19.6% in 2001 to 26.4% in 2021. Just like gas, the contribution of hydro natural flow didn’t change much in both years and hovered around 8-9%. Similarly, hydro pump storage was used to make 3.1% of Scotland’s electricity 20 years ago and its contribution dipped to 2.2% in the last year. Conversely the amount of energy generated from oil and other renewable sources, though negligible, nearly doubled over the last 20 years.
