Changes to how the EBacc will be calculated for 2021/22
The DfE is changing the way it will calculate the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) for this academic year (it will count entries from 2019/20 and 2020/21, but only include results from 2021/22).
However, the way the progress 8 measure is calculated, including which qualifications count and how, will remain the same.
This means that:
- EBacc will be affected and will in turn have an effect on progress 8
- The way your progress 8 measure is calculated won't be affected
