    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.

    ICT 'equivalent' qualifications that count as four GCSEs.
