Department for Education did not have the information requested.

Dear Department for Education,

I am writing to request some information about the number of autumn exam takers, broken down into numbers of students achieving each grade via CAGs in the summer, for all subjects (that received entries for the autumn exams). Please provide the data in tabular form.

eg. (with fabricated numbers, just for the purpose of the demonstration for clarity)
Physics:
A*: 0, A: 350, B: 850, C: 1050, D: 400, E: 250, U: 100, Total: ...
Chemistry:
A*: 0, A: 450, B: 950, C: 980, D: 420, E: 350, U: 120, Total: ...

If you are unable to provide this information for all subjects, then please prioritise: Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Biology, and then after that, any remaining subjects in decreasing order of the number of people entered in the autumn (ie. most popular subjects prioritised).

Yours faithfully,

Lucy Bamford
