Can you grade this short raw essay? try to take less than 2 minutes?

This is a response ot the SAT essay topic "Are even our best plans always at the mercy of unexpected, chance events?" PLease grade it :) (its my first attempt done in 20 minutes) Yes, even our best laid plans are at the mercy of unexpected, chance events. THroughout the play "A Doll's House" by Henrik Ibsen, various characters - Nora, Krogstad and Torvald - lays a plan in an attempt to enhance their lives but ends up taking a route completely astray from the route they had planned to take, and thus ends up doing just the opposite of what they initially intended. Krogstad, the antaginist of the play had planned to gain back his honorable job position at the bank by threatening the bank managers lovely wife Nora.Because Nora was a flirt who easily manipulated her husband, Krogstad believed that Nora's request will be accepted by Torvald and he would earn his position back. But unexpectedly, Nora fails to convince torvald and considers committing suicide. And soon thereafter, another unexpected event - kristine linde's request to become a family- throws off Krogstad's original plan. The notion that even our best plans are thrown off by unexpected events is also supported by the fate of the protagonists of the play 'A Doll's HOuse" - Nora. When NOra borrowed money through fraudery, she planned on paying back the lender with out anyone else- especially her husband- finding out about the fraud. BUt through an unexpected twist of events, the money lender found out about her fraud and decided to report it to Nora's husband. Nora, who had initially planned to cover up the loan through her own abilities, was left devastated. The idea that our best laid plans may be thrown off track is yet again supported by another key character in the play "A doll's house" - Torvald Helmer. Torvald, who had originally planned to keep his subserviant wife Nora with him forever, realizes that his wife has changed, matured, and discovered the ability to talk back to him. Torvald's plan is shattered when Nora requests to "talk" with Torvald about treating her with equal respect, like a wife, not a child or a pet. Torvald, shocked through and through, refuses and thus loses his belived Nora. Thorughout the play "A Doll's HOuse", Krogstad, Nora and Torvald all had to abandon their plans and had to find a new path. All three realized that life doesnt the way they had planned and that even their best laid plans are at the mercy of unexpected, chance events.
