Ofqual routinely analyses how attainment gaps for students with different protected characteristics and socio-economic status vary over time. Here, Dr Ian Stockford, interim Executive Director for Standards, Research and Analysis, offers analysis of results for different groups of students taking GCSEs, A levels and a subset of vocational and technical qualifications.
