10 Dạng Đề IELTS Writing Cần Biết – Dạng 3: Mixed Charts –  Useful Writing Task 1 Guidance

Trong bài viết này, IPP sẽ hướng dẫn chiến thuật viết bài dạng Mixed Charts để đạt band điểm cao trong IELTS Writing.

1. Nhận biết dạng bài Mixed Charts

Các bài Mixed Charts là bài có 2 hình, mỗi hình sẽ tả thông tin về một khía cạnh. Bài mixed charts có thể bao gồm:

  • 02 hình đều là comparative charts
  • 02 hình đều là trend charts
  • 01 hình trend chart & 01 hình comparative chart

Dạng bài này, không khác nhiều với hai dạng bài trên, bạn cần nắm comparative & trend language & structures, nhưng điều khác biệt nhẹ là bạn cần phải có overview cho cả 02 hình:

  • Overview sẽ gồm 02 câu: S01 – overview hình 01 + S02 – overview hình 02
  • Với mỗi hình, bạn chỉ chọn Overview tiêu biểu nhất (đại lượng lớn nhất, có thể bỏ qua yếu tố tăng – giảm nếu quá dài)

The diagrams illustrate a country’s distribution of the four most popular film genres and their box office revenue between 1996 and 2000. Overall, drama dominated the release scene, while comedy reigned supreme in terms of ticket sales in the given period. Despite the general surge in production and audience demand across all film genres from 1966 to 2000, romance remained the least popular and profitable genre.

In terms of the publishing of films, the drama genre constantly led the chart from 1996 to 2000, with the most noticeable growth of around 10%, accounting for more than one-third (35%) of national films released by 2000. Similar growths were recorded for Both comedy and fantasy films in the given period, with the percentage of released comedy movies rising from 20% to 25%, while the figure for released fantasy movies climbed from 12% to 16% by 2000. By contrast, the romance genre defied the pattern by remaining stagnant at roughly over 5%, making this type of film to be released the least by 2000.

Regarding the sales of cinema tickets, comedy films were the best-sellers, with 20% of ticket sales in 1966, followed by a rise to nearly 23% in 2000, retaining its top position. The drama genre, which consistently held second place throughout the given period, witnessed a slight increase from 16% to 17% of tickets sold by 2000. While fantasy film ticket sales tripled to about 6% in 2000, the figure for romance movies halved to merely 2% in 2000 from its roughly 5% share in 1996, making it the least profitable genre.

The bar charts compare the target and actual performance of a bus company with regard to train punctuality, and the number of passenger complaints received from 1999 to 2003.  Overall, the percentage of punctual buses fluctuated wildly and was consistently lower than expected except in 2003. Meanwhile, the bus company received an increasing number of complaints from passengers for its delays.

In terms of the rate of punctual trains, the company planned to have 86% of their services arriving on time in both 1999 and 2000, but actual figures were lower with a drop from 85% to a low of 82% respectively. In the two subsequent years, the company lowered its target to 85%, which was still slightly higher than the actual figures of about 84% in 2001 and 2002. Only in 2003 did the company overtake its target by setting it at 84.5% yet running 85% of their services on time.

Concerning negative feedback, about 70 complaints were sent to the company in 1999, prior to a sudden rise to 100 complaints in 2000 and a slight fall to 90 in 2001. This rate then grew steadily to reach 120 dissatisfied passengers issuing complaints in 2003.
