Preprimary school enrollment can exceed 100% due to the inclusion of over-aged and under-aged students because of early or late school entrance and grade repetition.
Definition: Gross enrollment ratio is the ratio of total enrollment, regardless of age, to the population of the age group that officially corresponds to the level of education shown. Preprimary education refers to programs at the initial stage of organized instruction, designed primarily to introduce very young children to a school-type environment and to provide a bridge between home and school.
