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.

IELTS Essay : Discuss different views about change


You should spend 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
Some people resist changes in their lives while others think that change is an integral part of life.

IELTS Essay: Discuss different views about change

Sample Answer:

Change has been an inevitable part of our lives. Some people prefer to stick to their old ways and leisure in their shields while some of them explore the altitudes and minds and come out as enlightened ones. I’m going to discuss both points of view in this essay.
There are many reasons why people feel the need to make prominent changes in their lives. With new situations comes new opportunities to explore and learn new things. This instills the lost confidence about oneself and makes one motivated. In addition, changes force people to be flexible and adaptable, which in turn promotes their personal and professional growth.
On the other hand, some people do not appreciate change so much. One key reason behind this view is that they become too comfortable in their own situations. The fear that changes can turn their lives upside down does not permit them to try something new. Their previous experiences of failure can also resist them from accepting any changes.

To conclude, there are no easy answers to this question. On balance, however, I tend to believe that change is a big necessity for anyone who wishes to have an interesting and fulfilling life. Certainly, embracing changes is a challenge but we should accept them.
