2009-2010

The results tables provide information on students' performance in NCTJ exams on all our accredited courses. But before we get to the details - a few words of explanation to help you interpret the information.

The tables show students' performance in the 2009/10 academic year.

They are grouped according to subject - newspaper journalism; magazine journalism; sub-editing; and press photography and photojournalism.

They cover all types of courses accredited by the NCTJ - undergraduate, postgraduate, FE fast-track, commercial fast-track, academic year, commercial part-time courses, and sub-editing.

Given the wide variations in number, cohort size, format and duration, the NCTJ has produced a series of results tables that compare performance in NCTJ exams between courses of a similar type. A variety of inter-linking tables have been drawn up to ensure browsers are comparing like with like, can navigate between tables and can see results in context.

The tables show only those courses where at least one cohort of students has completed the NCTJ programme of study since accreditation was granted. This means that more recently-accredited NCTJ courses are not shown. Each table contains 11 columns of information which are explained if you click the link under the information icon at the top left hand side of the table.

Each table shows:

  • Name of centre
  • Name of accredited course
  • Dates and duration of accredited course
  • Number of students completing the accredited course
  • Number / percentage of students gaining A to E grade passes in each core exam (depending on journalism pathway) and - in the case of shorthand - the number / percentage of students passing at a minimum speed of 60wpm
  • Number / percentage of students gaining A to C grade passes in each core exam (depending on journalism pathway) and - in the case of shorthand - the number / percentage of students passing at a minimum speed of 100wpm
