(89) Figures cover only those students who provided details of their previous educational establishment. Over the last 10 years the proportion of acceptances who did not provide this data varied between 15 per cent. and 20 per cent.. In 1998, the categorisation of individual schools/colleges was updated to take account of changes in school/college status; as a result, the figures for 1998 and later years are not directly comparable with those for earlier years. Numbers have been rounded to the nearest hundred.

(90) Covers maintained schools, independent schools and a small number of miscellaneous establishments.

(91) Figures may not sum to totals because of rounding.
