When doing further analysis of the information presented in Table 14 an error was discovered in the programme used to produce the table. The error resulted in the pupils not being placed in levels 3, 4 and 5 correctly. The error does not affect the overall figure for levels 3-5, or any of the other tables or figures in the publication. Table 14 has been revised to correct the error.
