Exam Results

Centre Assessed Grades – 2020 results

The 2020 results were calculated using the best of the CAG’s or the Ofqual statistical model. CVEA undertook a robust quality assurance program based on the Ofqual criteria to generate their CAG’s.

When compared to national CAG’s, CVEA would have built on our improving results trend since the 2018 exam results with our 2020 cohort.

This would have been reflected in all of the headline figures, with a significant increase in the English Baccalaureate measure, with over 65% of our students entered compared to the 11% entered in 2019.

Overall progress 8, when compared to national CAG’s, would have gone from -0.62 (2018), -0.28 (2019), to -0.11 (2020), a significant improvement over time for the Academy.

  • Grade 4 or more in English and Maths: 62%, an increase of 6% from 2018
