Details

This statistical first release (SFR) provides information on the overall achievements of 16- to 18-year-olds who were at the end of 16 to 18 study by the end of the 2016 to 2017 academic year, including:

  • attainment in A levels, academic, tech level and applied general qualifications

  • attainment in level 2 vocational qualifications and tech certificates

  • the progress made by students between key stage 4 and graded level 3 qualifications (excluding tech levels) and minimum standards (in revised SFR only)

  • progress in English and maths qualifications (for students without an A* to C grade in these subjects at key stage 4)

  • level 3 maths qualifications (for students with an A* to C grade in maths at key stage 4)
  • retention rate for students’ main programme of study (in additional text for revised SFR only)
  • completion and attainment measure for tech level, level 2 vocational qualifications and tech certificates (in additional text for revised SFR only)

This SFR also publishes the results of exams taken during the 2016 to 2017 academic year by all 16- to 18-year-olds.

We published provisional figures for the 2016 to 2017 academic year in October 2017. The revised SFR provides an update to the provisional figures. The revised figures incorporate the small number of amendments that awarding organisations, schools or colleges and local authorities submitted to the department after August 2017.

Following the main release of the 16 to 18 headline measures published on 25 January 2017, we published additional information about the retention measure and the completion and attainment measure on 15 March 2017. Information about minimum standards on tech level qualifications is also published in this additional release.

The retention measure and the completion and attainment measure are also published in the 16 to 18 performance tables for 2017.
