answer text
<p>The Department has published the number of students entering A level computer studies or computing, split by free school meal (FSM) eligibility, from 2011/12 – 2016/17.[1] Figures for 2011/12 – 2015/16 were based on exam results achieved in the report year. In addition, for 2015/16 figures only include students who were included in the ‘best 3 A levels’ measure. From 2016/17, figures cover exam results achieved in all years of 16-18 studies (up to 3 years) and inclusion in the best 3 A level measure was no longer used in the methodology, resulting in more students being included and correspondingly higher rates of entry. Due to the changes in methodology, neither 2015/16 nor 2016/17 are comparable with other years.</p><p> </p><p>The total number and percentage of students entering A level computer studies or computing in each year is provided in the attached tables, as well as the percentage of entrants into each subject who were eligible for FSM.</p><p> </p><p>Figures for 2017/18 will be published in the revised publication, at this link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-attainment-at-19-years" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-attainment-at-19-years</a> on 24 January 2019.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>[1] For 2010/11 – 2015/16 - <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-level-attainment-by-pupil-characteristics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-level-attainment-by-pupil-characteristics</a>.
