They're interesting but not very informative in terms of what lies behind them. I'd like to see: * the male/female splits for each subject * the annual entry by DT subject for the past five years * the total entry decline by whole DT entry and by subject * an indicator of the ability ofentry by subject. * comparisons with other Boards (I know they come later .... if you have the time to search them out.) I would guess that mostly boys made up the RM entry and again that it included a lot of the "less inclined". Textiles scores a whole almost 20% more on the A-C than RM. That's a big difference .... GP lingers at the bottom ..... again well down on Textiles and Food). Is this a reflection of differing standards or differing entry ability? I'm wary of stats because of what lies behind them and don't get me started on the arbitrary C cut off for league tables. My A-C this year was a meagre 31% for GP but 82% for A-D. ANO subject was 54% A-C but 63% A-D and with worse residuals. Who will get the plaudits and who will get the bollocking? But who really did better?
