    MATCH function across multi column range

    Dear all,

    I hoping for some advice here. I am trying to calculate the success rate of members of staff. I have each student's score in a number of subjects (A2:J6) and there teacher for each subject (L:U)
    I want to COUNT the total number of student scores over a certain amount (e.g. >5) for the member of staff in cell A9. I can use a COUNTIF(OFFSET combination to count the number of scores over a certain amount, and I can count how many students each member of staff teaches with a COUNT(MATCH but I can't figure out how to make them work together.

    To summerise, I want to:

    COUNT how many times the teacher in A9 has got students more than a grade 5 across across range (A2:J6), but only in the subjects that they teach them in (hence the OFFSET of -11 columns to return the value). I have attached a screenshot to hopefully make things a little clearer.

    Sometimes teachers teach more than one subject etc. so they change frequently. I realised that I could rearrange the data use a "consolidating multiple ranges" pivot and using a standard COUNTIF function but I work on Mac Excel 2016 so that function is not available.

    *I am new to this forum so I hope I have followed the procedures correctly. Many thanks in advance for any help.

    based on your sample, perhaps:

    you state the teachers may teach more than one subject but obviously in the sample data that's not the case -- however, the above would cater for that.

    so, for ex, if you change S6 to HPE then the COUNT in B9 should increase by 1.

    Hero. Who would have thought it would be that simple. I was completely over complicating it.

    Thank you very much.
