Every year we hear about how the overall 'pass rate' at A-level has risen.

Can anyone tell me what is meant by ''pass rate''? Ie what is a 'pass'? Is it a grade C and above?


Thanks

A pass is anything above a U, but I think when they talk about these statistics, they mean C and above...

Only when talking about GCSE statistics do "they" talk about A* - C statistics as that is one measure of school performance
When talking about A level a pass is A* - E

E or above is a pass, so whenever stats or anything says "96% of our students get all passes at a-level* It means that they get at least an E in each of their subjects.

With GCSE's people consider a pass above a C generally.
