The A-levels are subject-based qualifications leading to university, further study, training or work. For clarity on data collection, please navigate to Department for Education Website.

The dashboard presents AS-level and A-level students studying various subjects and their grades.

An understanding of AS and A-level subject and attainment levels over time will help to identify those subject areas where a geography has a specific strength and support future planning for subject areas that are less well represented. This can also aid forward projection of future attainment levels and workforce potential by geography.
