Sample 4. IELTS Task 2 – Nature vs. Nurture (hand-written, 8.5)

This is an excellent example of writing by a non-native student. It is doubtful the IELTS would ask such a complex question (is genius learned or are people born that way?), but this student addressed it fully, with very good, concrete examples, and with a wide range of vocab and expressions. This would easily score an 8.5 (there are some lapses in spelling and grammatical points, but not enough to distract from the message).
