GCSE and NVQ Data: have a go yourself

With deadlines for most City University students looming it seems only fitting that today the Department for Eduction (DfE) released the figures for last years end of Key stage 4 exams. i.e GCSE’s and NVQ’s.

The DfE have rather helpfully highlighted some of the most crucial data trends. the data set itself though is rather large but has been broken down into pretty simple categories and is easily manageable.

So it seem that at a time when exams are at the forefront of most students minds it seems the perfect data set to try out all the data skills covered in our blog.

Play around wit the information and let us at the Data Day know if you find anything interesting.
