A report on the completion and success rates of learners on vocational programmes, general education programmes (including A Levels) and the Welsh Baccalaureate for August 2018 to July 2019.
This is the latest release in the series: Consistent performance measures for post-16 learning (achievement)
Statistics cover further education colleges and school sixth forms.
- 9% of the full-time students who started an AS level in the 2017/18 academic year achieved the equivalent of three A levels at A* to A in 2018/19.
- 42% achieved at least three A*s to Cs.
- 65% passed the equivalent of three or more A levels (grades A* to E).
- 80% of main vocational qualifications were successfully achieved.
- Half of learners on the Advance Welsh Baccalaureate passed (50%).
- There were large inequalities in outcomes for learners from deprived backgrounds. Learners from the least deprived areas were almost three times more likely to get three As or A*s, compared with learners from the most deprived areas.
- Females were more likely to achieve than males in general education programmes. There was no gender gap in success rates for vocational programmes.
