no no no no fishpaste - its all because the standard of teaching has improved which is, of course, because of the governments various remarkable ideas; really, it is.

If you ask me its partly because of the introduction of the new GNVQ's which can count for upto 4 GCSE'S so that bumps the percentages up a whole lot.

Strange how it hasn't even blipped slightly for one single year....

Thanks.
Just count the number of people on this forum (excluding Maskall's numerous accounts) and divide by the total of 16 year olds, then multiply by 100, and there is your answer.
