|Percentage of pupils at the end of key stage 4 attaining specific grades in Double Award Science, 2005-08|
|Maintained sector||Independent sector|
Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many and what proportion of pupils who achieved a GCSE in double award applied science at each grade in 2007 were educated in the (a) maintained mainstream and (b) the independent sector. 
Mr. Coaker: All pupils at the end of key stage 4 that achieved grades in double award applied science are counted in the following table which is broken down by grade and the education sector attended by the pupil.
|Double award applied science|
The grading structure of the double award applied science changed between 2007 and 2008.
Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many and what percentage of pupils who achieved a GCSE in core science and one of (a) biology, (b) chemistry and (c) physics at each grade were educated in the (i) maintained mainstream and (ii) independent sector in each year since 2007. 
Mr. Coaker: The following figures are based on the school at which the pupil was registered at the time they sat their exams. It is possible, by moving schools, that some pupils were educated in both sectors.
In 2007, there were only seven pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 achieving a GCSE in core science and at least one GCSE in biology, chemistry or physics both at grade A*-G. All of these pupils were educated in the maintained sector.
(1) Pupils that have passed core science will appear in each row for which they have passed a separate science. Pupils are counted once in the final row by their highest grade in the separate sciences.
