Examination Results 2017
The results below are the provisional results from the 2017 examination series. Some of the statistics below may still change as we are still awaiting the outcome of paper reviews.
Figures in brackets are the averages from over 1500 secondary schools in PiXL (Partners in Excellence).
- no national data available due to new performance measures.
The following information was compiled by PiXL based on the results submitted on 24th August. It should be noted that a number of our appeals have returned successfully and have enhanced some of the figures below. The data is benchmarked against over 1500 secondary schools nationally.
