The data on students’ school results are online

Translation by Giulia Lombardo

The data relating to the school results of upper and lower secondary school assessments have been published on the website of the Ministry of Education. In the first cycle of education, graduates are on the rise. The number of pupils not admitted to June’s final assessment in upper secondary school decreased, but the number of students who will have to pass successive exams to be admitted to the next school year increased.


Lower secondary school

The students admitted to the next class of the first and second year are 98.5%. The figure is stable compared to last year (they were 98.3%). At regional level, the higher admission rate to the next class is recorded in Molise (99.5%), in Basilicata (99.2%) and Puglia (99.1%).


Upper secondary school

In upper secondary schools, 75.5% of students were admitted to the next class (last year they were 76%). The number of people not admitted in the various courses fell evenly: in technical schools they went from 9.4% to 8.9%, in vocational education and training from 10.8 to 10.3% and in “licei” high schools from 3.8% to 3.4%. The region with the highest number of admissions to the next class is Puglia (82.8%). Followed by Calabria (82%), Basilicata (81%) and Sicily (81%).

6.2% of students will have to repeat the school year, with a slight decline compared to last year when 6.7% were not admitted. The first year is confirmed as the one with the most critical issues: 8.1% will have to repeat the school year, up from 7.1% in 2020/21.

The end of the year assessments also show an increase in the number of students who will have to sit exams in at least one subject in which they proved insufficient 18.3% (last year they were 17.3%).
