Could anyone tell me why pics success rates are significantly different from View Your Education Data please?
I am aware that VYED is based on particular periods however this still differs
No one has replied to this post.
PICS is currently following the latest 2021/22 QAR calculations, so should generally match VYED. There are several things that can cause discrepancies though, so the first thing I'd recommend you do is reconcile your ESFA QAR against PICS, as this may well highlight why some of the difference exist. The main reason for differences is that data was changed in PICS after the ESFA closed off the year for further changes. If the report doesn't make things clearer, please email the Support team so they can look into things in more detail.
