    Rich kids who are blissfully (and luckily) unaware of the low standard of education a large amount of people received.

    42% inc M+E at mine. Stupid island.

    For a lot of state schools (like mine for example with only 61%) don't necessarily have a low standard of eduction (albeit lower than most private schools), they just have lots of deprived kids who don't care about learning. I went to a state school and came out with 12 A*-B grades including As in Maths and English, so it's not all bad. The education is good if you actually want to learn - we got an 'outstanding' Ofsted report.

    68% (Inc E + M), but 90% of entries got A*-C... weird.

    The year that I left (2006) my school had 26% of pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs A*-C including English and Maths. But the statistic that they bragged about was the overall rate of 62% of pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs A*-C (which isn't much to be proud of anyway). The point they failed to emphasize was that this statistic didn't include English and Maths so the pupils could have got 5 C's in subjects which won't get them jobs since they lack English/Maths.

    Also, both of those statistics are for 'GCSEs or equivalent' - when I look at the tables for simply 'GCSEs' the percentages are even lower. It's pretty awful really.

    24% the year I left and they celebrated that as it was their best yet lol. It's improved to around 34% now but still i'm amazed at any school with 75%+ gaining A*-C including english and maths.

    State comprehensives that get over 75% are those in very rich areas with tiny catchment areas. Supplementary tutoring is common, and schools encourage students to pick subjects that are easy to obtain higher grades in.
