How to go about writing your task 1 report

Use appropriate style and tone. Task 1 Academic reports should be written in a formal and impersonal style. Write all verb forms in full. Do not use contracted forms like can’t or shouldn’t. Likewise, do not use abbreviations. For example, write information instead of info.

While writing your task 1 report, resist the temptation to volunteer information you were not asked for. You only have to report the visual information in your own words. You should not offer an opinion or make speculations. Likewise, you do not have to describe every single change shown in the chart or diagram. Just mention the overall trends.
