Please read the model answer below.


The bar chart compares the percentage of female school-leavers who were pursuing higher education in 1970 and 2005. The data is given for five different countries: the UK, the USA, Canada, Japan and Germany.

Overall, the number of women entering tertiary education increased significantly in 2005 compared to 1970. Canada in both years had the highest percentage, and Japan ranked last.

In 1970, just under 20% of women in Japan entered higher education, whereas in Canada the figure was three times larger (60%). However, while Japan experienced an almost twofold increase by the year 2005, the percentage of women entering university in Canada remained exactly the same as that in 1970: 60%.

After Canada, the least significant change between the two years was in Germany, having risen from 50% in 1970 to 55% in 2005. The UK and the United States, nevertheless, had approximately the same figures for both the years in question. In 1970, around 35 to 40% of women matriculated in these two countries, and in 2005 the figures were within a very narrow range: 58-60%.
