IELTS WRITING TASK 1

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The tables below show the distribution of students at UK universities by mode of study and gender.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

Male Postgraduate Students
Mode of study 1996/97 2000/01 2005/06 2009/10
Full-time 75,370 87,070 1,15,550 1,51,275
Part-time 1,13,961 1,08,770 1,38,505 1,17,105

 

Female Postgraduate Students
Mode of study 1996/97 2000/01 2005/06 2009/10
Full-time 62,344 85,215 1,18,675 1,46,980
Part-time 1,08,702 1,25,855 1,72,640 1,63,340

Sample Answer:

The tables compare the proportion of males and females enrolled in full-time and part-time postgraduate courses at UK universities in four academic sessions between 1996 and 2010.
It is evident that student enrolments in full-time courses followed an upward trend for both the genders throughout the given period. The number of males rose from 75,370 in 1996-97 to 151,275 in 2009-10 while that of females increased from 62,344 to nearly 146,980 during this period. These figures also indicate that there was a gender disparity in full-time postgraduate programmes. In 1996/96, the gender disparity was the highest (75,370 males versus 62,344 females) but the distribution became more balanced in the following years.
Focusing on part-time courses, overall more students were registered in these programmes as compared to full-time ones. In 1996-97, about 114,000 males and about 109,000 females selected part-time courses. In the next two academic years, there was a rapid increase in the percentage of female students whereas the number of male entrants fluctuated. The year 2005-06 had the highest enrolment rate in part-time programmes for both sexes, 138,505 males and 172,640 females. Notably, the number of students dropped in 2009-10.
In general, it can be concluded that full-time courses were more popular among males than females during the given period. The trend for part-time courses, on the other hand, was the opposite. (227 Words)

IELTS Graph

Sample Answer:

(IELTS Lavel 8.5)
The bar graph compares the popularity of six activity clubs between two adult age groups at a particular leisure center.
OR
The bar graph provides information about how two age groups participate in six activity clubs at a particular leisure center.

One striking feature of the data is that the photography, fitness, and music/dance clubs are popular with both older and younger people. By Contrast, the cycling, arts and crafts, and gardening activities clearly appeal more to one of the age groups. The cycling club has the greatest number of 25-35 year-olds, but it is one of the least popular clubs with the older age group.

This trend is closely followed by the arts and crafts club which has 60 young members in comparison with only 20 from the 55-65 age bracket. In the gardening club, the pattern is reversed. There are about 55 members aged between 45 and 55 while the proportion of young participants is considerably lower. Notably, the composition of fitness and music/dance clubs is quite balanced, but there are slightly fewer older members. The membership of photography club stands at 45 for both groups.

In general, it can be concluded that some clubs attract both young and old people. Nonetheless, overall, the younger age group is significantly more involved in various activities than the 55-65 year-olds.(220 Words)

ANIMAL POPULATION IN IA

animal population

Write a report explaining the graph. You should write at least 150 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

The graph illustrates the number of animals, cattle, dairy, hogs, broilers and layers present in IA from 1997 to 2007.

In the  year 1997, layers were the highest number of animals present followed by hogs. Broilers were present half in number when compared to hogs and layers whereas cattle were not present at all. However, by the year 2002, the population of cattle boomed surpassing the dairy animals and was approximately equal to the number of broilers. Around 7 millions hogs and broilers were present in 2002, while less than five million dairy animals existed.

Towards 2007, the population of all animals increased only with a minimal percentage, with hogs and layers being the maximum animals present in IA. The number of cattle and broilers remained approximately equal while dairy animals were the least present.

Overall, layers were the highest number of animals present in IA whereas while cattle were the least present initially, dairy animals were found minimal in IA over the decade from 1997 to 2007.

IELTS WRITING Task1 Pie Chart # Schools Survey

Sample Answer

The pie chart highlights people’s views from a survey of the reasons behind poor academic outcomes in a country in 2011.
People attributed bad performance in schools to a number of causes. These included working parents, lack of revision, inadequate facilities, unskilled teachers and upbringing. Among all the five listed causes, unskilled teachers was cited by the maximum number of those surveyed at 35%. This was followed by the way a child is brought up, a cause quoted by 27% of the poll sample. Only one in five participants ascribed unsatisfactory school results to working parents. Lack of facilities and revision were considered by fewer respondents, 10% and 8% respectively.
In general, both school related and home environment related causes were held accountable for low educational attainment. Notably, total percentages of people who cited these factors were not significantly different, 53 percent versus 47 percent. However, it is clearly evident that most participants blamed untrained teachers for below average academic results. (161 Words)
