Change to GCSE recognition

22 03 2012

A change is being made to the eligibility of examination subjects to count towards school data outcomes from 2014. 

The details are available through this link - two files are to be found for downloading at the bottom of the page in this link – the first gives a list of examinations which will be included in league tables and the second files (FAQ’s) gives responses to questions.  The latter document includes the response (Para 6 sixth bullet – related to criteria for GCSE subjects to be included in league table results) ‘a take up of at least 100 pupils across 5 centres in a single cohort’ – this might cause difficulties for music cohorts in areas where individual schools are smaller than the national average and therefore 5 local cohorts might not be presenting 100 music GCSE students in total. 

I will seek further clarification on this point.
