     N.B: For some programmes, the entrance age and duration presented in columns E and F for ISCED levels 0-3 may be different from that in columns K and L
     because these reflect the parameters used by UIS in the calculation of participation indicators. The tertiary gross enrolment ratio (GER) uses a population of the age-group
     corresponding to five years following on from the secondary school leaving age (e.g If the ending of secondary education is 17, then the age-group used for the tertiary
     GER will be 18-22).
