- Less than 40% of their pupils are gaining at least five GCSEs at grade C or higher, including English and maths
- In addition one in four schools and colleges are not producing any students with top grades in subjects that will help them win a place at a leading university
- In around 600 schools and colleges no A-level student scored AAB in "facilitating" or preferred subjects
