This is the number of pupils achieving 5 or more A*-C or equivalent including English and Maths at Key Stage 4 (KS4) as a percentage of the number of pupils at the end of KS4. This was previously reported as NI 75.
PRE 2013/14 DATA IS NOT COMPARABLE DUE TO CHANGES TO THE PRODUCTION OF THESE STATISTICS FOR THIS PERIOD
Two major reforms have been implemented which affect the calculation of Key Stage 4 (KS4) performance measures data: 1. Professor Alison Wolf's Review of Vocational Education recommendations which: restrict the qualifications counted; prevent any qualification from counting as larger than one GCSE; and cap the number of non-GCSEs included in performance measures at two per pupil. 2. An early entry policy to only count a pupil's first attempt at a qualification. Comparisons between 2013/14 and earlier years should not be made before reading sections 2 and 3 of the statistical first release:
Local authority, region and the England total figures cover achievements in state-funded schools only. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas and so will not match with state-funded figures in the main tables.
