Data is from the England and Wales 2021 Census, Northern Ireland 2021 Census, and the Scotland 2011 Census (2022 Census data is yet to be released)

Map Highlights




🎓 Education Enthusiasts! The North East of England is leading the way with 18.56% of its population having A Levels as their highest qualification. This shows a strong culture of education in the region, and perhaps a great place for expanding educational opportunities!

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland's Study Struggle! In 2011, only 9.7% of Scotland's population had A Levels as their highest qualification - the lowest percentage among the regions. This could highlight a potential area for improvement in Scotland's education system.

🌆 London's Learning Lapse! Despite being one of the most populous regions, London has a relatively low percentage (13.2%) of the population where the highest qualification is A Levels. This might be due to the diverse range of opportunities and qualifications available in the capital.



Data Summary




From the rolling hills of the North East to the bustling streets of London, it's clear that the educational landscape varies greatly across the UK 🇬🇧. While some regions are acing the A Levels, others seem to be exploring different paths. Perhaps this diversity is what makes the UK's education system so unique and vibrant. Let's celebrate these differences and continue to strive for educational excellence in all corners of the country! 🎉📚
