Results of surveys about a university

Sample Answer:
The table illustrates the proportion of students who gave good ratings for various aspects of a university in three selected years.

Overall, it is clear that the percentages of students who gave good ratings on all aspects were comparatively higher in 2010 than 2000 with the exception of the range of modules offered by the university.

The most striking feature is that there was a significant rise in the percentage who rated for electronic resources. It started off at 45% in 2000, rose to 72% in 2005 and finally the figure almost doubled in 2010 than 2000. From 2000 to 2010, there were fluctuations in the percentage of students who gave a good rate for the teaching quality, print resources and also the range of modules offered. However, the modules offered by the university had a lower percentage of good ratings in 2010 than in 2000, the reverse was true for the other two aspects.

It is interesting to note that the building and teaching facilities remained constant in its percentage of good ratings by the students over the given period which was 77.
