General description
This table covers data published in the Welsh Government's annual "Examination Results" release. It provides information on the number of A level entries into each subject group and the percentage of those entries achieving each A level grade. For more information see the Weblinks.

Note that this year, the definition of this table has changed. This table now includes entries taken in previous years, and discounted exams are excluded. This is so that the table is consistent with the rest of the key performance indicators. Figures should be treated with caution - it is possible for pupils to have entered more than one exam within a small number of subject groups.


Rounding applied
Percentages are shown as whole numbers and have been rounded to 0 decimal places.
