Information on the number of students who did further education in Britain between 1970-71 and 1990-91 is depicted in the given bar chart.
Overall, it is clear from the chart that students were more in to full-time rather than part-time education irrespective of gender during the given period.
While the number of male students who did full-time education was fluctuating, the volume of female students who did the same is seen increasing over this twenty-year period. In case of the former, the figures fluctuated between 810 and 1000, whereas in case of the latter, it grew from around 700 to nearly 1100. The least female full-time enrolment was in 1970-71, whereas 1980-81 saw the least male enrolment.
Turning to the part-time education, the number of male students showed a consistent growth over the period, and this was from approximately 100 to around 200. Female students also grew in number and hit 200 in 1990-91, but the growth was sharper between 1970-71 and 1980-81.
