Outcomes for 16-year-old students at grades A* to C for English, English
literature and mathematics have remained stable between summer 2015 and
summer 2016 when combined across GCSE and level 1/2 certificate
qualifications (also known as international GCSEs).
Entries for 16-year-old students increased in the majority of other EBacc
subjects in summer 2016. On average, schools tended to enter more 16-year-old
students for EBacc subjects in summer 2016 compared to summer 2015.
In general, results for 16-year-old students in the majority of EBacc subjects
tended to be lower in summer 2016 than in summer 2015. This appears to be
due to an increase of less able students taking EBacc subjects in summer 2016.
