Dataset

Pupil attainment at GCE/VCE A/AS by gender in England (referenced by location of pupil residence)

Added By Infochimps

Achievements of young people in GCE/VCE A/AS examinations. The dataset includes the average GCE/VCE A/AS point score per student and the average GCE/VCE A/AS point score per entry. For the same set of students, the data also include the percentage achieving 2 or more GCE/VCE A level passes or the AS level equivalent; and the percentage achieving 3 or more GCE/VCE A grades at A level. A breakdown by pupil gender for these variables is also included. This data is based on pupil residence rather than where they go to school

Time coverage: 2004/05 to 2007/08

Type of data: Administrative data

Notes: The dataset covers 16 to 18 year old students at the end of their second (and final) year of post-16 study. To determine whether a student belongs to this group, a set of criteria known as ‘trigger criteria’ has been established. These criteria state that students must be aged 16, 17 or 18 (at the start of the academic year), and they must have been entered for a GCE/VCE A level, or a VCE Double Award in the summer session of the academic year. Data based on school location rather than pupil residence and is available for maintained schools only.
