Technical information on submitting 14- to 16-year-olds’ qualifications for approval in the 2014 performance tables.
In line with Professor Wolf’s recommendations, in future, only qualifications which are high quality, rigorous and enable progression to a range of study and employment opportunities will be recognised in school performance tables for 14- to 16-year-olds. From 2014 the headline performance tables measures will no longer include equivalences, nor will they include qualifications that are smaller than GCSEs in size.
