    For everyone at secondary school, college or sixth form. What are your schools stats?

    If possible, can you also state which area/region in England you are from, doesn't need to be specific

    Average grade last year was a D. The sixth form has since closed and we were the last year group.

    School is based in the South East. Couples of students are at good institutions like Manchester and Durham whilst another mate is going to Lund in Sweden.

    A level grades were 85.7% A*-A
    1/3 of sixth form get oxbridge offers, the majority of the rest go to other RG unis or prestigious art, drama or music schools
    A lot of girls also go to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford etc.

    Above average but grammar schools are like that. Unbelievable if comprehensive school though.

    It is a band 4 school (in Wales Schools are banded from top band 1 to lowest band 5). At GCSE I can't find A*-C stats but averaging about 20% getting 5A*-A. There seems to be a significant gender gap in my school - I was the top boy at GCSE but beaten by three girls, and the top four or so were all girls the year after that.
    At A-level, meh. We had a few decent sets of grades, but mostly mediocre. No Oxbridge in our cohort (indeed, I was the only one to even get an interview lol), but two in the year before that and one in the year after that. AS was tremendously poor for us, particularly in the sciences and maths (two As in maths AS, a few Cs, and the other 15 or so all below that) but for some reason there was general improvement at A2.

    I heard it was one student that got 4 B grades which brought the whole A*- A percentage down, although that's probably just rumours I think she transferred schools bc she was being bullied not bc of her grades

    Yh, I go to one of the top 10 grammar school in the country (had the most oxbridge offers in the country) and my school still only got 85% A*-A. I think she goes to some private school because 97% is insane

    If you pay the school that much, a B is pretty unacceptable if you think about it

    True, it's basically throwing money down the drain. If my parents were paying that much, no way would a B be enough for them.
