This Statistical First Release updates information published in October 2007 which provided the earliest information on the overall achievements of young people in GCSE and equivalent examinations in 2007, and progress against the Department's national learning targets. The publication contains revised national level analyses by school type, gender and subject and revised Local Authority (LA) level analyses by gender. The information in this SFR is based on that collated for the 2007 Secondary School (GCSE and equivalents) Achievement and Attainment tables and has now been checked by schools. The Secondary School Achievement and Attainment Tables will be published on 10 January, the day after this SFR.
