Performance tables in England for 2020 results - spring term updates

Thu Mar 22 09:42:00 UTC 2018

Here's an update on the first release of qualifications included on performance tables in England for 2020 results covering what's currently included, when we are due to hear from the DfE about the next release, and how you can get in touch with our specialist subject teams for more support and guidance. 

1. Technical Awards (14-16 Key Stage 4 in England)

There is currently a total of 8 BTEC qualifications included on these tables - five BTEC Tech Awards and three BTEC First Awards.

We’ve created a simple subject-by-subject summary of what’s included on Key Stage 4 performance tables in England for 2020 results, and what’s under DfE review.

As you can see, the DfE has removed several BTEC First Awards and our Pearson Edexcel Level 2 Certificate in Digital Applications (CiDA) from the 14-16 performance tables at this first stage.  We’re reviewing these removed qualifications and may re-submit during the summer term 2018.

​We’ll also re-submit our BTEC Tech Award in Digital Information Technology in March 2018.  We expect to hear from the DfE during May 2018 and we’ll update you as soon as we have more news.
