What do you think?

  1. It’s a fair and sprited attempt. However, you need to work on your mechanical accuracy and diction. Try to read more books, take courses, build your grammar base. It would help. The mechanical accuracy affected your ideas and your overall structure. I’d give 12 over 25. Don’t stop writing !

  2. Was really looking forward to your work Moshood.
    My first comment is on your profile. There are a number of grammatical errors which should not be there if you’d applied the lessons learnt from Mr Yusuf Akinpelu’s diction class.

    Coming down to your essay proper, I’d say that while it was a spirited attempt, it still lacked the essentials of a creative essay. You really didn’t paint a picture of the scourge of drug abuse. That would have been very key in getting your message across.
    I’d say you merit a 9/25.

    In addition, please please pay attention to your mechanical accuracy. The first word of your essay was an error. I believe you meant to say “it’s” which is the contracted form of “it is”.

    Don’t be discouraged though. You would shock the world with your writing some day. Just keep on practicing.

  3. Of 25, you have 11.

    You can do more by watching how you use capital letters and punctuation generally.

    Good luck.
