DfE Tables Checking Exercise- 27th September 2018

Subject Progress 8 scores will report as NaN or -∞ until we have the average national entries in EBacc and Open baskets, which the DfE had indicated would be published in October. We are following this up with them directly.

 Science not showing in EBacc or Progress 8


If you are finding that Science subjects are not displaying in the EBacc or Progress 8 tools then please check the following:

First please go to Help > About 4Matrix and check you’re using version or later. If you’re not, you’ll need to update.

Next check that the correct awards are linked to each science subject in Edit Subjects, by selecting it from the list on the left and checking the QAN in the top right.

There is list of all included courses and their discount codes at:


Stay in Edit Subjects, and click on the first science subject in the list - most likely Biology. Click Edit Qualification in the top right. You'll be taken to a very similar looking display where you can check the discount code for each qualification; this is shown in the last column in the table to the bottom-right of the screen. If they have a discount of ‘0- use national subject’ they will need to be changed to their official codes using the drop down menu. If you start typing the code it will filter the options automatically;

RC1        Physics (General)

RD1        Chemistry (General)

RH3        Biology

RA14      Applied Sciences

RA1B     Science (General/Combined)

RA1C     Additional Science

RA1D     Further Additional Science

RA1E     Science Double Award

Once you've checked and updated your first science subject, go back to Edit Subjects, select the next science subject and repeat the process. Once complete, go back to the EBacc/Press Release and check your figures. Please contact us via the usual method if it is still not correct.
