  1. For pupils at the end of KS4 in 2021/22, where pupils achieved qualifications in subjects between January 2020 and August 2021, we will not use results from these qualifications and these results are shown as covid impacted. The entries into the qualifications are still counted. 
  2. Some percentages may not add up to exactly 100% due to rounding.
