    Please help me make the following sentence natural.

    Please help me make the following sentence natural. Thank you in advance.

    In 2011, there was a sharp decrease in the number of British men students from just under 40 to around 24 in the years 2011 and 2012.

    Re: Please help me make the following sentence natural.

    You need to decide if the sentence applies to "In 2011" as it says at the beginning, or "in the years 2011 and 2012" as it says at the end.
    You might be trying to say that there were 40 students in 2011 and 24 in 2012.

    Please note that a better title would have been British men students.
