Map Highlights

🎓 Education Emphasis: The North East of England takes the lead when it comes to education! With 18.56% of the population having 5 or more GCSEs, it's clear that education is a top priority in this region.

🌍 Diverse Degrees: Scotland, on the other hand, has a different story to tell. With only 9.7% of the population having 5 or more GCSEs, it seems that Scots may be pursuing other forms of qualifications or focusing on different career paths.

🏙️ Learning in London: London, the bustling capital, has a unique take. With 13.20% of the population having 5 or more GCSEs, it's a blend of both worlds - an emphasis on education while also being a hub for diverse career opportunities.
