The bar chart illustrates the proportions of the decisional views regarding indications for education among young individuals and the pie chart represents the supposed budget allocation of each educational course on individual basis. At the first glance, it can be seen that major reason for adult education is interest in subjects (40%) and the very same proportion should be shared by individuals for each course.

To begin, the bar chart shows that around 38-40% of adults decide to study to gain qualifications and due to interest in subjects respectively. While according to 20-22% of people, they find the adult education necessary to enjoy learning, to improve promotional prospects and to find it helpful for the current job respectively. Very small proportion of adults is with the views to meet people and for changing job purposes.

By far, the pie chart shows that 40% of the educational course cost should be the responsibility of individuals, 35 % should be paid by employers and about a quarter should be allocated to taxpayers.

Just one quick important point about this:

"At the first glance, it can be seen that major reason for adult education is interest in subjects (40%) and the very same proportion should be shared by individuals for each course".

Don't put data in the overview.

It is meant to show the general trends of the whole graph - if you put in data it will look more like 'detail' rather than an overview.

If you are seen to not have a clear overview then you will be limited to a band 5 for Task Achievement. You don't want to risk this.

The bar chart shows the reasons for adult study. By analyzing this,we can see almost three types of reasons are present. Around half of the adults study to achieve the performance and for having interest in that particular subject. Near quarter of the people find it as a medium of enjoying, promotion and useful for recent work. Lastly, few numbers of them want to communicate with others and switch their jobs.

The pie chart depicts the cost allocation to different authorities. Here, we can assume that, most of the cost should be shared individually where more than quarter by the employer and only a little by the taxpayer.

Through this chart analysis, we find adults want to pursue their study whatever the reasons are. For their betterment, the total cost must be divided among population. Thus they may be encouraged.
