2020 is an extraordinary year; the exam series was cancelled in March and a U-turn on how grades have been awarded took place four days after A Level grades were announced, and three days before GCSE grades were announced. However, the data from 2020 still enables us to monitor results in terms of arts entries.
-37% decline in arts GCSE entries 2010 to 2020
+1% increase in arts GCSE entries 2019 to 2020, +3.1% increase in GCSE Cohort number
-30% decline in arts A Level entries 2010 to 2020, -2% decline 2019-2020
