New government data shows that the number of pupils entering and achieving the EBacc has decreased this year.
According to Schools Week, in 2017, 38 .1 per cent of pupils in state schools entered the five EBacc subjects and 23.5 per cent achieved a “standard pass”.
Compared to last year, 39.7 per cent entered for the EBacc and 24.5 per cent passed.
A standard pass is considered to be a C or higher, under the previous alphabetical system, of a four or above under the new numerical grading system.
This ends the five-year trend of increasing EBacc entry rates.
Ministers are looking to see 75 per cent of pupils taking the EBacc by 2022, and 90 per cent by 2025.
However, there has been an increase in the number of students entering at least four or five of EBacc subjects.
The proportion of pupils taking at least four of the EBacc subjects has risen from 37.5 per cent in 2016 to 43.7 per cent this year, an increase of 6.2 percentage points.
