This file contains the numbers and proportions achieving Level 2/3 for the cohorts aged 19 in 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 (i.e. those aged 25 in 2018/19, 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22) from age 16 up to 25. Level 2 and 3 attainment figures from 16 to 19 are included in the files above and are repeated here for convenience of use.

Overall cohort numbers are taken from school census population data when learners were academic age 14 (i.e. age 14 at the start of the academic year; 15 by the end of the academic year).
