Dear TBGS,
Thanks for the information provided, I have some clarification on the different figures publised on the TBGS website and the FOI response.
The FOI reply gives a total of 5815 Bucks Independent & state school pupils took the test and 1644 passed.

The above numbers are different from the following totals published on the TBGS website:
5908 Bucks Independent & State school pupils are listed as registered for the test, of these, 1723 passed with 121+ and 1777 are listed as qualified.
Please explain the differences of the "121+" and "Total Qualified" numbers and the different totals given in the FOI response and the numbers published on the TBGS website.

Yours sincerely,

Derek Berry

Dear Mr Berry

Further to your query I asked our contractor to check the figures that we
supplied to you. The original figures that we provided excluded children
who have been withdrawn from the process whereas the figures on our
website include those children. The dataset used previously was also from
a slightly different date. The figures below have been re-worked using the
same dataset used for the website and from the same date. You will see
that they are still slightly different from the website figures. This is
because the figures on the website are based on residency whereas you
requested figures based on school attended. Some Bucks children attend
schools in other LAs and some out of county children attend primary
schools in Bucks.
