A-level

These figures are based on students who were entered for at least one A level or AS level. A levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, maths, sciences, languages and humanities. The primary purpose of A levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide opens in a new window .

Average result (A levels)

These figures tell you the average grade and average points that students achieved per A level entry. We give a points value to all qualifications so you can compare qualifications of a different size and grading system. We base the number of points on the challenge and size of a qualification, and a maximum of 60 points are available for a grade A* at A level.

Type of school or college

Progress score and description (A levels)

These figures tell you how much progress students who studied A levels at this school or college made between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A level studies, compared to similar students across England.

The scores are calculated by comparing the A-level results of students at this school or college with the A level results of students in schools and colleges across England who started with similar results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 4.

A score above zero means students made more progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.

A score below zero means students made less progress, on average, than students across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 4.

A negative progress score does not mean students made no progress, or the school or college has failed, rather it means students in this school or college made less progress than other students across England with similar results at the end of key stage 4.

The majority of schools and colleges have progress scores between -2 and +2.

These scores are also known as 'value added' scores.

Percentage of students completing their main study programme

This measure is based on students who enrolled on, and subsequently completed, a programme of studies that is categorised as mainly A levels. For further details, see the 16 to 18 Accountability Technical Guide opens in a new window .

Achieving AAB or higher, including at least 2 facilitating subjects

Facilitating A levels are ones that are commonly needed for entry to leading universities. They are: biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, further mathematics, geography, history, English literature and classical or modern languages.

Grade and points for a student's best 3 A levels

We calculate the 'best 3 A levels' score by adding each student’s points in their best 3 A levels, dividing by 3, then averaging across the eligible students in the school or college. This is also expressed as a grade.
