Qualifications other than GCSEs in academic subjects

DfE is reviewing the way in which academic qualifications other than GCSEs - including those on this list - count towards performance tables as reformed GCSEs are introduced. Reformed GCSEs in English language, English literature and mathematics will be introduced for first teaching from September 2015, and will be reported in performance tables from 2017. Reformed GCSEs in other subjects will be introduced for first teaching from September 2016. See also: Vocational qualifications which are equivalent to one GCSE and Vocational qualifications which are equalvalent to more than one GCSE.

New qualifications are in bold. Qualifications carried over from the 2015 list are in non-bold.
