Chinese and Indian pupils get more top grades at GCSE than British childrenBy Laura Clark
Last updated at 10:37 PM on 28th March 2010Exam results: Pupils from Chinese and Indian backgrounds are more likely to gain good grades in their GCSEs. Chinese and Indian pupils gain more top grades than white British children in every school subject, official figures reveal. The biggest gulf in attainment is in GCSE maths, where Chinese children are three-and-a-half times more likely to get an A than white British children.Fifty-five per cent of Chinese pupils and 31 per cent of Indian pupils who took GCSE maths last year achieved an A, according to figures from the Department for Children, Schools and Families.Among white British pupils, the figure was 16 per cent. For black African pupils it was 14 per cent, for Pakistani 13 per cent and black Caribbean 8 per cent. Significant differences in achievement are also seen in English, geography, history, chemistry, biology, physics, French and religious education.The breakdown, the first to look at top grades across a spread of curriculum subjects, raises the prospect that the academic potential of millions of pupils has been left unfulfilled by the time they finish compulsory schooling. Bristol University researchers suggested the attainment differences were down to contrasting attitudes to education between ethnic minority and white communities.Dr Deborah Wilson pointed to high aspirations among immigrant communities, who 'almost by definition' are 'keen to get on in life'. She said that, with qualifications linked to social progress, 'it makes sense to focus particular effort at that point'.The DCSF figures show that, as well as forging ahead in maths, Chinese and Indian pupils outperform white British pupils in English.Youngsters from black African, Pakistani and black Caribbean backgrounds again trail behind. The Chinese pupils were most likely to get As, with 29 per cent getting the top mark in English, compared with 21 per cent of Indian, 15 per cent of white British, 11 per cent of black African, 9 per cent of Pakistani and 8 per cent of black Caribbean. Chinese pupils were also most likely to get top grades in the seven other subjects included in the breakdown. Separate research, published today, reveals that Chinese parents are more likely to pay for private tuition to supplement their children's learning at school.They are less likely than white British parents to think schools should single-handedly cover all education that is needed, according to academics at King's College London, commissioned by the Nuffield Foundation
