EBacc results 2018: Entries rise slightly

The proportion of pupils in England entering the EBacc has increased slightly this year.

New provisional GCSE results data published this morning shows 38.4 per cent of pupils entered the EBacc in 2018, compared to 38.1 per cent last year, but less than the peak of 39.7 per cent seen in 2016.

However, data on the proportion of pupils achieving the EBacc, which is normally published in the same data release, is not included this year because the government has changed the way it reports on the accountability measure.

Instead, the data shows an “average point score” of 3.83 for all schools and 4.03 for state-funded schools in 2018, though there is no equivalent score for 2017 to compare this to.

For comparison, the maximum average point score is 10.75, and this is only achieved when a pupil achieves an A* in an AS level qualification in each EBacc “pillar”.

Ebacc threshold attainment measures will be published in January.
