The Government values different outcomes at different levels of education. Progressing to higher levels of learning, for example, is more important at foundation levels. For this reason, educational performance indicators (EPIs) are weighted differently for the different grouped qualification levels, as shown in the table below.

A weighting of 0% means the educational performance indicator does not affect the performance score for this grouping of levels.
