2014 GCSE results

In August, the 2014 GCSE results were published. The main point to note with regard to languages was that there was a decline in both French and German, and last year's gains (attributed to the introduction of the Ebacc measure of success) was not sustained.

The JCQ said, in a statement: "Spanish continues to grow in popularity, with the number of entries continuing to grow year-on-year. French and German both declined in entries. However, these dips do not wipe out the significant growth seen last year (16.9 per cent across the three languages) and are in line with the decline in the national cohort and the number of candidates taking GCSEs."

Full results are available at the JCQ website on http://www.jcq.org.uk/media-centre/news-releases

The Speak to the Future campaign has published an analysis of the trends at http://www.speaktothefuture.org/what-is-happening-to-languages-at-gcse/
