As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics.

Data Provider: Welsh Government National Statistics Key Stage 4 Interim Measures by LEA, from 2018/19

This cube covers data published in the Welsh Government's annual "Examination Results" release. It provides information on the percentage of pupils in year 11 achieving qualifications in the core subjects (English/Welsh first language, Mathematics and Science). The annual release shows this data at Wales level, in this table, the figures are shown for regional consortia and local authorities. From 2017, a maximum of two vocational (non-GCSE) qualifications will count towards all threshold measures, depending on size of the qualification (i.e. no more than 40% of the threshold). For more information see the Web links.
