BBC Learning Development


More and more data is being made available by governments, institutions and private companies. This data can seem inpenetrable without tools to interpret and visualise. We are trying to collate various publicly available data sources which relate to education and create visualisations to help make sense of the numbers.

Uptake by Subject for GCSE and A-Level from 1997-2007
DCSF and The National Office of Statistics publish stats on the number of pupils taking exams in the various subject areas. We have created two visualisations; one for GCSE and one for A-Level.

These require Flash Player 10.

We welcome your feedback on these visualisations. Please email
