Changes from last year

For 2017/18, the DfE replaced the EBacc threshold measure (the percentage of pupils achieving the EBacc) with an average point score.

As a result, there is no previous data to compare the 2017/18 data against.

This is explained on page 13 of the DfE’s statistical release on the provisional data.
