Model Answer - Ielts Writing (Task 1)

The charts below show the main reasons for study among students of different age groups and the amount of support they received from employers.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.

The first bar graph examines whether students of all ages study for a career or for personal interest while the second chart shows which age group employers are willing to support by allowing them time off work or assistance with tuition fees.

80% of students under 26 study in order to pursue a career. This reason is not so important as students become older. Approximately 20% of students over the age of 49 view this as relevant. A reverse trend is seen in students who study for their personal interest. Only 10% of those under 26 do this. The percentage increases together with age and 70% of those over 49 study for interest. For the age group 40-49, those who study for a career and those out of interest are equal (40%).

Employers are willing to support those under 26 (60%), between 26 and 29 (50%) and those over 49 (42%). They are less willing to provide aid to those between 30 and 49 years of age. The percentage for these two groups ranges between 30-32%.

To sum up, it is generally the case that younger adults study for career purposes while those who are older tend to study out of interest. Employers choose to support younger age groups more.
