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)

Sample Answer

The line graph illustrates the variations in the percentage of old people aged 65 and above in Japan, Sweden and USA over a 100-year period from 1940 to 2040.
In 1940, just under ten percent of the US population was 65 and over, the highest figure among the listed countries. Sweden and Japan stood at the second and third place respectively with nearly 7% and 5% population in this age range. In the next 50 years (i.e. 1940-1990), the curves followed strikingly similar upward trends in western countries. The proportion of elderly in the USA reached the mark of 15% whereas the percentage was slightly less than 15% in Sweden. In comparison, there was a small decrease of about 2% in the Japanese figures during this period.

Between 1990 and the present, the American figures remained constant while Sweden and Japan experienced a gradual increase in their percentages. Notably, these proportions are expected to rise dramatically in the next two decades in all the three countries. By 2040, the ageing population will account for nearly one fourth of the total population in these nations.

Overall, it is evident that the proportion of elderly people has risen in all the given countries. This trend is predicted to continue in the future and by 2040, these countries will have a similar number of old people (about 25%). (225 Words)
