GCSE and A level passes.

Read More......

From here:

On a radio discussion programme I asked two senior newspaper journalists (neither of them education specialists) what proportion of 18 year olds they thought managed to achieve three A-level passes at the minimum pass-grade of E.

"Sixty per cent," said one. "Eighty per cent," said the other.

What do you think?

The answer is just over 25%. Yes, not much more than 1 in 4 of the age cohort achieve three grade Es or better at A-level.

This article really, really shocked me. Wow. I honestly thought it would be at least fifty per cent.
