Marks deducted for misinterpretation
by Aditya Patkar
In Writing task 1, I misinterpreted one table (in all 2 were given) and wrote my answer based on that interpretation (actually I mistook 'number of potatoes in kg/person' as 'consumption in million tonnes' as the same unit was used in the other table).
Table 2 interpretation is fine and my overall writeup is fine English-wise but the interpretation is wrong. Task 2 went fine and I could get 8/9 in that.
What score could I expect in overall writing?
How much marks are cut if the table/graph is interpreted wrongly?
