Band 8 IELTS report sample

The line graph illustrates the weekly per capita consumption of fish & chips, pizza and hamburger in Britain between 1970 and 1990. Overall, it can be seen that while the popularity / consumption of fish and chips and hamburgers increased during the given period, consumption of pizza showed a downward trend / consumption of pizza decreased. To begin with, while pizza consumption was at 300 grams per person per week in 1970, fish & chips and hamburgers had a significantly lower consumption at around 90 grams and 20 grams per person per week respectively. The consumption of pizza steadily went down by about 100 grams /person/week over the next 10 years. On the contrary, the consumption of fish & chips soared from less than 100 grams/person/week in 1970 to about 150 grams/person/week in 1980, before spiralling up to 500 grams/person/week in 1990.  Fish & chips had become the most popular food by 1990.  In a broadly similar fashion, hamburger consumption showed an upward trend of nearly 90 grams/person/week from 1970 to 1985, and shot up to 300 grams/person/week in 1990, making it the second popular fast food in the UK.
