Examination Results 2016

In 2016 the Government changed the way that schools’ examination results are measured. The new measures focus on the grades in eight key subjects, and include every student’s results.

  • Progress 8: This measures how much progress has been made during the five years at secondary school in the 8 key subjects. In effect, it measures the value added by the school. A score of 0 indicates that students have achieved the grades expected of them.
  • Attainment 8: This is the average grade achieved across the same 8 key subjects.
