We want schools to understand what EBacc subjects were taken by pupils attending specific higher education institutions.
This information is useful for:
- school leaders
- school careers advisers
- pupils and parents
The research explores the higher education destinations of pupils who took different EBacc subjects. It compares pupils:
- enrolled at Russell Group universities
- enrolled at other higher education institutions
- pupils with no recorded higher education outcome
The main focus is the language and humanity entry. These subjects are historically the most common missing pillars for pupils entering 4 of the 5 EBacc subject areas.
The EBacc was introduced as a measure in the 2010 school performance tables in England.
