  1. Local authority, region and the total (state-funded sector) figures cover achievements in state-funded schools only. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas and so will not match with state-funded figures in the national tables. 'England' includes all pupils from state-funded schools, independent schools, independent special schools, non-maintained special schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. Alternative provision includes academy and free school alternative provision.
  2. The subject totals do not sum to the overall total because some pupils enter more than one vocational subject. For example, a pupil that has entered both Art & Design and Business will appear in both the Art & Design and Business totals but will be counted only once in the overall total.
  3. : = When data is unavailable for other reasons
  4. Discounting has been applied where pupils have taken the same subject more than once. In 2021/22, with the return of the exam series, we have reintroduced first entry rules for discounting. Further information can be found in the secondary accountability guidance. For more on the discounting methodology prior to 2020, read the Discounting and Early Entry Guidance.
  5. z = When an observation is not applicable
