 For pupils at the end of key stage 4 with results that count in key stage 4 performance tables
 In 2013/14, two major reforms were implemented which affect the calculation of key stage 4 performance measures data: 1) Professor Alison Wolf’s Review of Vocational Education recommendations which: restrict the qualifications counted; prevent any qualification from counting as larger than one GCSE; and cap the number of non-GCSEs included in performance measures at two per pupil, and 2) an early entry policy to only count a pupil’s first attempt at a qualification, in subjects counted in the English Baccalaureate. Consequently, the numbers supplied prior to 2013/14 are not directly comparable with those from 2013/14 onwards.
 In 2014/15, early entry policy, under which only a pupil’s first attempt at a qualification is counted in performance measures, was extended to all subjects.
 New reformed 9-1 GCSEs in Arts subject counted in key stage 4 performance tables for the first time in 2017/18. Once a reformed subject is included in performance tables, their unreformed counterparts no longer count, even if this was an early entry.
