This page allows you to explore relationships between various academic activities and achievements and pupil characteristics at school, constituency and local authority levels. Here are a couple of examples to get you going:
- There is a clear correlation between GCSE Maths attainment and poverty, though London schools tend to do better than those elsewhere
- GCSE Physics seems relatively unpopular in areas with high numbers of pupils for whom English is an additional language. The same is not true for, eg, History. The pattern for Physics correlates somewhat with deprivation, as indicated by eligibility for free school meals
- Uptake of A-level Chemistry is universally low in constituencies where more than 30% of students are eligible for free school meals
- Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the data presented here, but we cannot accept responsibility for errors or omissions however caused. If any of the information is important to you then please verify it independently.
- Point scores are calculated using the DfE's scoring systems for GCSE and A/AS-levels. Other qualifications are not currently calculated.
- In line with DfE rules, certain small values have been rounded in order to protect student anonymity. This makes little difference to most analyses, but may sometimes result in anomalies where very low numbers are involved.
The 'Academic activity' tab above contains a companion page that allows you to explore relationships between different measures of academic activity and attainment. Please refer to the notes on that page for furter information.
