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

We use discount codes to group together qualifications with similar content in the school and college performance tables. This is so we do not count similar qualifications twice. The discounting guidance describes how we do this.

We give a point score to all qualifications in the school and college performance tables. You can use these point scores to compare qualifications of a different level, size and grading system. The point scores are in the performance points document.
