Exam Results

Teacher Assessed Grades – 2021 results

The 2021 results were calculated using the teacher assessed grades (TAG’s). CVEA undertook a robust quality assurance program based on the Ofqual and exam board criteria to generate their TAG’s. All sections stages of the QA process were passed without question from both Ofqual and AQA, our allocated exam board.

When compared to national results from 2019 (which CVEA used as a comparator to assign grades), CVEA would have built on our improving results trend since the 2018 exam results with our 2021 cohort.

This would have been reflected in all of the headline figures.

There has been a significant increase in the English Baccalaureate measure, with over 65% of our students entered compared to 11% in 2019.

The EBacc APS has improved from 3.49 in 2019 to 4.49 in 2021 (above national average of 4.07 in 2019).

Overall Progress 8, when compared to national data, would have gone from -0.62 (2018), -0.28 (2019), to -0.07 (2020, against 2020 CAG’s), +0.06 (2021) a significant improvement over time for the Academy.
