4Matrix for Welsh Schools

We are proud to announce that the latest release of 4Matrix (version 3.8.0.0, June 2017) includes a range of new BETA tools and features to support the Welsh KS4 School Performance Measures. Existing customers will be contacted directly with information about the changes and to guide them with the required setup tweaks.

If you are a Welsh school and would like to try 4Matrix, please read the information below and follow the sign-up link.


Performance Measures

  • Level 2 Threshold Inclusive: The Level 2 threshold requires 5 GCSE or equivalent passes at C grade or above with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications. The ‘inclusive’ element requires a C grade or above in Welsh/English Language and a C grade or above in Mathematics or Numeracy.
  • Level 2 Threshold: The Level 2 threshold requires 5 passes at C grade or above with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • Level 1 Threshold: The Level 1 threshold requires 5 passes between A*-G grades with a 40% limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • Capped 9 Points Score: The first five grades are subject specific with the last four grades being the learner’s best grades. There is no limit on non-GCSE qualifications.
  • The new Welsh Baccalaureate performance measure for 2018.



All the above performance measures are now accounted for in 4Matrix.


Schools that have activated the Welsh School Setting in 4Matrix may find that their figures have changed sporadically across the application as a result of the latest update. In order to correct this, changes will be required to your qualification statuses. To enable us to assist you with this, please contact support.
