  1. The given pie charts depict the reasons that are taken into account by students of 2 age groups (18-24 and over 25) when choosing Dorriford University.
    In the age group 18 – 24, the variety and the number pf courses offered have played an important role when compared to the over 25 age group. The reputation of teaching staff affects the over 25 age group 6 times more than it does the 18 – 24 years age group. As shown in the graph, the opportunity to study abroad doesn’t have that much of an impact on both the groups when making the decision to choose Dorriford university. A significant percentage of students of the age group over 25 years are considering the relatability to the industry when choosing the university as opposed to the 18 – 24 years age group.
    Accordingly, the main reason for both the groups to choose the University is the proximity to home. The reason that affects 18 – 24 age group the least when choosing the university, is reputation of teaching staff. Whereas, the over 25 years age group is affected the least by the facilities of the campus.
