The chart shows the percentage of women and men in one Asian country who passed when they took their driving test between 1980 and 2010.

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


The bar chart illustrates the proportions of both genders passing the driving test from an Asian nation, from 1980 to 2010.

Overall, the percentage of women legally acquiring a driving license was larger than that of men over time. Additionally, There was a significant increase in license possession in the last time span, between 2000 and 2010.

In 1980, percentages of women owning a driving license were greater than that of men, at more or less than 48 percent and nearly 28 percent respectively. Likewise, there was over 50 percent of women obtaining the license in comparison to only 38 percent of men recorded in 1990. In the following decade, women and men in percentage shared a similar upward value of over 10 percent. Proportions of women dropped slightly from roughly 68 percent in 2000 to considerably more than 62 percent in 2010. Whilst, the figure of men remained unchanged, at almost 50 percent in the last two decades on the chart.

The bar chart illustrates (poor word choice) the proportions of men and women both genders (The use of "gender" is quite rare. Generally, it is unnatural. and not a good synonym for "men and women") passing the driving test from in an Asian nation, from 1980 to 2010. ( That is for continuous data, which has values for every year.) for each decade between 1980 and 2010 / for four time points: 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.

Overall, the percentage of women legally acquiring a driving license (too verbose. It is not required because you already described this in the first paragraph. You do not need to repeat this information.) was larger than that of men every year. over time. Additionally, There was a significant increase in license possession (unnatural - poor English) in the last time span, between 2000 and 2010.

In 1980, percentages of women owning a driving license (Incorrect. Many may have a license but they passed their test 20 years earlier!) were greater than that of men, at more or less than 48 percent (incorrect expression) and nearly 28 percent respectively. Likewise, there was (wrong verb form) over 50 percent (80% is over 50% and so is 92%. You need to be careful with "over" and "under") of women obtaining the license in comparison to only 38 percent of men recorded in 1990. In the following decade, women and men in percentage shared a similar upward value of over 10 percent. Proportions of women dropped slightly from roughly 68 percent in 2000 to considerably more than 62 percent in 2010. Whilst, the figure (wrong word) of men remained unchanged, at almost 50 percent in the last two decades on the chart.

Here is a sample essay if the title of the chart is "Driving test pass rates"


The grouped bar chart compares the driving test pass rates for men versus women in a particular Asian nation. Data is shown for four years, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.

Overall, less than half of the men succeeded in passing at any point during this period. The women fared much better, especially after 1980 when the majority passed. The values for both groups went up between 1980 and 2000.

In detail, fewer than half the people who attempted the test passed in 1980, although the women's rate was almost double that of the men's, 28% versus 48%. There was a stepwise increase in the rates for both men and women from 1980 to 1990 and 1990 to 2000, with the largest rise coming in the latter of the two intervals. Between 1980 and 2000, women had increased their pass rate from 48 to 68 percent, which was the highest measure on the entire chart. Men never achieved more than 50%, although they came fairly close, about 49%, in both 2000 and 2010.


If the title is missing, you should not use "rate" but "percentage" or "proportion". Rate generally has a different definition than percentage.


The grouped bar chart compares the percentages of men and women who passed their driving test for a drivers license in a particular Asian nation. Data is shown for four years: 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.

Overall, men were relatively far less successful than women; less than half succeeded in any of the four years. The women fared much better, especially after 1980 when the majority passed.. Values for both groups went up each successive year between 1980 and 2000.

In detail, fewer than half the people who attempted the test passed in 1980, although the percentage of women was almost twice that of the men, 48% versus 28%. There was a stepwise increase for both men and women from 1980 to 1990 and 1990 to 2000, with the largest rise coming in the latter of the two intervals. Between 1980 and 2000, women had increased their percentages from 48 to 68%, which represented the highest measure on the entire chart. Men came fairly close to half, about 49%, in both 2000 and 2010.
