Answered on

13 October 2016

The information requested is not available.

The number of pupils achieving the individual subject components of the English Baccalaureate is available from the 'Revised GCSE and equivalent results in England: 2014 to 2015' statistical first release[1]. This refers to 2015 revised data.

The Department for Education produces statistics on England only. The responsibility for education statistics in Northern Ireland lies with Northern Irish devolved administration.
