INTRODUCTION – Paraphrase the title. If you can’t think of any synonyms, try to change the structure.

Title – The charts show the sources of electricity produced in 4 countries between 2003 and 2008.

SAMPLE – “The charts outline how power was generated in four nations over the period from 2003 to 2008”

OVERVIEW – Give a general summary of the main points. Normally you should talk about major differences, similarities, highs, and lows. This part is ESSENTIAL so don’t forget!

SAMPLE – “A general review of the charts indicates that hydro power was the major source of electricity in Sweden and Morocco, while India and Vietnam relied largely on fossil fuels.”

BODY – Use data from the charts to support your overview. Use a range of descriptive vocabulary and link your points.

SAMPLE – “A massive 95% of Morocco’s power was sourced from water, while only 14% of India’s electricity production came from hydroelectricity. In contrast, just over four-fifths of India’s power originated from fossil fuels, whereas the related figures for Sweden and Morocco were only 4 and 5 percent, respectively. Vietnam also obtained a significant amount of  electricity from hydro sources at 44%, although the rest of its power was provided by fossil fuels.”

In terms of nuclear power, Sweden was far out in front with 44% of its electricity coming from nuclear. India generated a minimal 4 percent from the same source, while Vietnam and Morocco had no nuclear production.”

CONCLUSION – Provide a general summary of the main features. This will be similar to your overview, so be careful with time management and try to avoid repetition.

SAMPLE – “Broadly speaking, it seems that developing economies, like India and Vietnam, rely the most on fossil fuels as a source of electricity.”
