This page contains information about qualifications, discount codes and point scores for the school and college performance tables.

We use discount codes to ensure that a single course of study is credited only once in the school performance tables. The discounting guidance describes how we do this.

We use performance points to compare qualifications of different levels, sizes and grading structures. The points assigned to each qualification are shown in the point scores document. Read our guidance on performance points for more information on how performance points are determined.
