2016 A level results
This year's A level analysis from the Guardian.
'The small range of movement in exam results is a result of the use of a technique called comparable outcomes, adopted by exam regulator Ofqual in 2011 as a means of curbing grade inflation. It ties A-level grades to the same year group’s previous results in GCSE exams two years earlier.'
It will be interesting to see whether the comparable outcomes technique remains for subsequent years.
