Revised information on A level and other results for 16- to 18-year-olds, including data by student characteristics.



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

  • A levels and other academic level 3 qualifications

  • tech level and applied general qualifications

  • level 3 value added progress and minimum standards (in revised SFR only)

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

  • technical certificate and other level 2 vocational qualifications

  • level 3 maths qualifications (for students with an A*-C grade in maths at key stage 4)

This SFR also publishes exam results 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 provide 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.

We have also published the 16 to 18 performance tables for 2017.

We will publish an update to this release covering the completion and attainment measure, and retention measure, in March 2018.
