The number of pupils at the end of key stage 4 without at least a grade C in GCSE English and maths in 2014/2015 can be deduced from Table LA1 of the local authority tables published in the “Revised GCSE and equivalent results in England 2014 to 2015” statistical first release.[1] This table shows the percentage of pupils who achieved an A*-C in English and mathematics GCSEs including equivalents, including the total number of pupils at the end of key stage 4 in each local authority and region – from which the number and percentage of pupils not achieving a grade C in English and mathematics can be determined. Equivalent information for the previous four academic years is published in Table 15 in 2013/14[2] and Table 16 of the releases for earlier years.[3][4][5]
