Advanced level qualifications (level 3)

Most qualifications have a difficulty level. Level 3 is at about the same level of difficulty as an A level, but may take a different amount of time to study, and Level 2 is at about the same level of difficulty as a GCSE at grade 4 or above. Read more about qualification levels opens in a new window .

Due to the way that grades were awarded during the COVID-19 pandemic, qualification results achieved between January 2020 and August 2021, by students included in this year’s measures, are not included in the calculations. This may have had an impact on the results for this school or college, and we recommend that comparisons are not made with data from previous years, or directly with other providers. Comparisons to the local and national average should be made with caution.

We have not produced progress (value-added) measures at 16-18 this year as we would need to use grades achieved between January 2020 and August 2021 to do this. 16-18 progress measures will return from 2023/24.

Retention measures will be published in March 2023.

For more information please see the 16 to 18 technical guide opens in a new window .

These figures are based on students who entered at least one A level or AS level. A levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, maths, sciences, languages and humanities. The primary purpose of A levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university.

Disadvantaged students are those who attract pupil premium funding at the end of key stage 4, meaning students claiming free school meals at any point in the previous six years, students in care, and those who left care through adoption or another formal route. The performance of disadvantaged students is compared with the local authority and the England average for non-disadvantaged students.

About this data

Abbreviations Click to expand
  • LOWCOV = Low coverage: Shown for the 'value added' measure and coverage indicator where schools have less than 50% of pupils included in calculation of the measure
  • NA = Not applicable: Figures are either not available for the year in question, or the data field is not applicable to the school or college
  • NE = No entries: The school or college did not enter any pupils or students for the qualifications covered by the measure
  • NEM = No entries: We suppress multi-academy trust (MAT) figures if the MAT has fewer than three schools/colleges with eligible pupils or students in this measure, or where there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure.
  • NEW = New school or college
  • NP = Not published: For example, we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent special schools and non-maintained special schools
  • RE = Redacted: We redact these figures if they do not allow the calculation of a reliable estimate and therefore don’t provide a fair measure of performance. For transparency, we publish the headline information for these providers separately in the national achievement rates tables.
  • SN = Small number: The number is subject to rounding and is less than 3
  • SP = Small percentage: The percentage is subject to rounding and is between 0% and 0.5%
  • SUPP = Suppressed: In certain circumstances we will suppress an establishment's data. This is usually when there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure (29 for apprenticeships measures). We avoid making these figures public to protect individual privacy. We may also suppress data on a case-by-case basis.
  • SUPPM = Suppressed: We suppress multi-academy trust (MAT) figures if the MAT has fewer than three schools/colleges with eligible pupils or students in this measure, or where there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure.
  • -- = Null: Figures are either not available for the year in question, or the data field is not applicable to the school or college.
