Based on data for the past five years, the table below looks at which school years are most likely to be repeated.
|Level||Years Analysed||Repeats||Percent||Index||Boys Index||
Index values show how likely each school year was to be repeated - with index 100 representing the average rate.
Years scoring over 100 have above average repeat rates (200 = twice the average).
Years scoring under 100 have below average rates (50 = half the average).
Repeat rates are highest in P3-P5. Allowing for the small sample sizes, the pattern is the same for girls and boys.
There is a secondary peak in S3 & S4. So far, only girls have had to repeat these year — even though only slightly more girls than boys have reached that stage.
