General description
This cube provides information on the percentage of pupils in year 11/aged 15 achieving the key stage 4 indicators, by ethnic background.

Data collection and calculation
The figures in this table are based on information collected from awarding organisations for the school performance exercise and have been checked by schools. Further information on the collection and calculation of this data can be found in the notes section of the Examination Results release (See Weblinks).

Cohort sizes have been replaced by a * where there are fewer than 5 but more than zero pupils in a category.
Percentages have been replaced by a * where there are fewer than 50 but more than zero pupils in a cohort.
This is to make users aware of the very small numbers in certain categories and to show that care should be taken when making comparisons between attainment data for such categories.
