The percent of all children enrolled in primary school who enter the last grade of primary school; can exceed 100% due to over-aged and under-aged children who enter primary school late/early and/or repeat grades.

Definition: Primary completion rate, or gross intake ratio to the last grade of primary education, is the number of new entrants (enrollments minus repeaters) in the last grade of primary education, regardless of age, divided by the population at the entrance age for the last grade of primary education. Data limitations preclude adjusting for students who drop out during the final year of primary education.
