The average point score at GCSE is arrived at by giving recognition to all qualifications gained by a pupil. An intermediate GNVQ is awarded four times as many points as an A* to C grade pass at GCSE.
The value added score is arrived at by predicting what pupils should achieve at 16 when they arrive at the school at age 11. If on average pupils improve upon their predicted performance, the school will be awarded a score of more than 1,000. If they slip back, it will get less than 1,000.
The average point score for A-level again takes account of all qualifications gained by pupils including key skills. The majority of the weighting is for A-levels though with 120 points for an A grade, 100 for a B, 80 for a C, 60 for a D, 40 for an E. An AS-level is worth half an A-level.
