  1. Figures for the total number of students may not match the sum of females and males, as not all institutions recorded the gender for every student.
  2. 'All state-funded schools' includes city technology colleges (CTCs) and state-funded special schools. Figures for these institution types are not shown separately in the table. Excludes pupil referral units (PRUs), alternative provision (AP), hospital schools, non-maintained special schools, independent schools, independent special schools and independent schools approved to take pupils with special educational needs (SEN). These institution types are included in 'All schools'.
  3. Exam entries are for the current academic year, after discounting of exams. Includes pending awards. Covers students aged 16, 17 or 18 at the start of the academic year. 
  4. A change to the trigger rules was introduced in 2020/21  such that students were no longer automatically reported after two years in 16-18 study. The introduction caused a fall in cohort size, particular within the vocational and technical cohorts. A full impact analysis can be found in the <a href="">methodology document</a>.
