its my topic too and pretty confident with it

First of all, I've noticed that you have contractions which is not allowed (as far as I know) in writing such as "ppy".

Secondly, you used the word "now" which is not correct because it is from the past, try to use simple past tense if its referring to a time element. Always remember not to use present tense.

Please study more on transitional words and pay attention to the trend which you lack in writing task 1.

And most importantly you don't have a conclusion which is very important in every writing task.

PLS READ samples as well.

Conclusion
by: IELTS buddy

Actually you don't have to have a conclusion but you must have some kind of 'overview', which points out the major trend/s in the graph.

This could be placed as a conclusion but it could also go after the introduction.

You can use overall instead of conclusion?

overall instead of conclusion
by: IELTS buddy

Yes, you don't have to have a conclusion, but you must identify the main trend/s in the graph at some point.

compare and contrast

You have mentioned just factual information and didn't attempt to compare or analyse the data. That is what it should contain in part 2 or body that must have at least 5- 8 sentences.
