Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in Year 6 and their results in Year 11. It is a ‘value-added’ measure, meaning students’ results are compared to the achievements of other students with similar Year 6 results. It is called Progress 8 as it is based on the results of 8 subjects.
This is the average grade awarded over 8 subjects. For QEMS students this is 4.04 per subject so most students on average achieved a Grade 4. A Grade 4 is equivalent to a Grade C.
This is the percentages of students who achieved at least a Grade 4 in both English Language or Literature with Mathematics (standard pass). It is also measured at Grade 5 (strong pass).
This is the percentage of students who took qualifications in English, Maths, (at least) two Sciences, a Modern Foreign Language and History or Geography.
