Data on GCSE and equivalent entries and achievments at the end of Key Stage 4 by gender and location of school/educational institution.
This dataset contains data on GCSE results using the 1-9 grading system. This system has replaced the old A*-G grading system. The two main indicators are Attainment 8 and Progress 8, these are explained below.
Attainment 8 - This indicator measures pupils' average grade across eight subjects. These are:
- English & Mathematics
- Three other English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages)
- Three further subjects, which can be from the range of EBacc subjects, or can be any other GCSE or approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.
Progress 8 - This indicator measures pupils' progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 across the above 8 subjects. A postive score indicates that a student has made better progress than expected while a negative score means that a students has acheived an Attainment 8 score below expected.
