Details

This statistical first release provides experimental statistics on qualification success rates (QSRs) for state-funded school and academy sixth forms in England. QSRs measure the proportion of academic and vocational learning aims, for 16- to 19-year-olds, that are started, finished and completed successfully.

This is the first release on QSRs and it is the first year that national figures for QSRs have been published. QSRs are provided for learning aims at levels 1, 2, 3 and ‘4 or higher’ that were completed in the 2011 to 2012 academic year.

Headlines

The national qualification success rates at level 3 were 84% (based on 1,223,220 learning aims) for academic qualifications and 71% (38,076 learning aims) for vocational qualifications.
