exam results

Listed are summary figures for exam results in physics at Queen Anne HS since 2010-11. The department also calculates figures by pupil, class and teacher as part of its quality assurance process.

Relative value (R.V.) indicates how students did in this subject relative to the mean value of their other grades : 

 + indicates better in physics than other subjects, – means worse in physics  

* indicates significantly better/worse, ** highly significant etc.
