     N.B: The mappings present the correspondence between the national structure and the international framework (ISCED). To produce internationally comparable indicators, the UIS calculates
     participation indicators for ISCED levels 0-3, based on the entrance age and duration presented in columns K and L (ISCED), which may be different from columns E and F (national).
     For tertiary education, however, UIS uses a standard formula to calculate the indicator for gross enrolment ratio (GER), which 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).
