Sample Answer

The bar chart provides information about the unemployment rates of young adults aged 15-24 and that of the total workforce in five European countries in the year 2005.

Looking at the proportion of jobless young adults, the lowest figure was recorded in Denmark (just over 5%).  Germany and Hungary had approximately three times higher youth unemployment rates compared to Denmark. The highest unemployment rates were observed in Italy and Poland, about 23% and 37% respectively.

As regards the overall unemployment rates, Poland witnessed the highest figure in this category as well.  Fifteen percent of the Polish workforce was jobless while 5% fewer people were idle in Germany. Italy and Hungary came next with similar levels of overall unemployment, nearly 6-7%. In comparison, Denmark had only around 3% unemployed people.

In general, what stands out from the chart is that the youth unemployment rates were significantly higher than the overall figures in all the listed countries. Poland ranked the first in both the categories while Denmark came last. Italy and Germany were in the halfway marks with Hungary representing the overall mean.

Sample Answer

The tables give data regarding the quantity of potatoes consumed per person (in kg) and grown (in million tonnes) in five regions in 2006.

Looking at the regional consumption, Europe was the biggest consumer with 96.1 kg potatoes eaten per person. It was followed by North America where per capita potato usage was comparatively less, only 57.8 kg. At the next levels i.e. the third and fourth, were Asia and South and Central America.  These areas had similar levels of consumption, 25.8 and 23.6 kg respectively. In comparison, an average person in Africa ate less than half this amount (14.1 kg) annually, making it the smallest consumer.

As regards the production, Asia and Europe were the two largest potato producers in 2006. Their production amounted to approximately 131 and 126 million tonnes respectively. North America stood at the third position. But, its contribution was only 24.7 million tonnes which is about one fifth of the European share. The other regions, South and Central America and Africa, were far behind Europe. Each of them produced around 16 million tonnes of potatoes, nearly one eighth the European proportion.

Overall, Asia and Europe were two primary potato producing regions whereas Europe and North America were the two largest consumers.

Criminals in two cities since 2005 and predicted figures up until 2025

 

Sample Answer:

The line graphs illustrate the variation in the proportion of police officers and offenders in two cities, city A and city B, over a period of two decades between 2005 and 2025.
In 2005, city A had 25000 police officials whereas the number of officers in city B was comparatively higher, 30000. In the next 5 years, city A experienced a significant rise of 10,000 in the proportion of its police officers. In contrast, the trend for city B was downward and the numbers dropped to 25000 in 2010. Between 2010 and the present, city A’s police figures fluctuated while that of city B decreased slightly. According to future predictions, the number of police officers in city A will reach the mark of 45,000 in 2020. These figures are expected to decline to 40,000 in 2025. In comparison, city B will have only about 22,000 police officers between the present and 2025.
According to the second line graph, the number of criminals in city A and city B stood at nearly 0.9 million and 0.7 million respectively in 2005. In the next decade, city A’s figures dropped slightly while that of city B rose gradually to 1 million. In the future, city A will have about 0.6 million offenders. In contrast, the numbers in city B will be significantly higher, in the range of 1.1 to 1.2 million.
Overall, the number of police officers in city A has increased since 2005 while that of criminals has dropped. But, the trend for city B has been the reverse during this period i.e. fewer police officers and more criminals. (267 Words)

IELTS Writing Task1 #Students at UK Universities

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)
