  1. Students are potentially in scope for the Level 3 maths measure if they achieved grade 9-4 by the end of KS4 and are also reported in headline attainment measures.
  2. Totals may be less than the sum of separate institution types as students who attend multiple institutions during 16 to 18 can be included more than once in institution breakdowns. More information can be found in the Quality and Methodology section.
  3. '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'.
  4. 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.
