Hi, i come from another european country so i am trying to understand how the GCSE work. If i see that a school has 75% of pupils obtain 5 A*-C is it good or not? Whatnis the limit between good performance and bad performance? Thanks!
75% is very good for a non selective school with a mixed ability intake. Some schools get 100% but generally they are schools which have an entrance test and only select the top few children in an area to attend. A poor school would be considered to be one that got below 40% I think the national average is something like 59% and most people consider 65%+ to be good.
