1. Candidates’ characteristics from the Scottish Government pupil census prior to the release of the exam results. For example the 2020 results use the characteristics from the 2019 pupil census.

2. Includes pupils who are assessed or declared disabled or have a CSP, IEP, Child Plan or ome other type of support. This is consistent with the definition used in Scottish Government statistics on education.

3. Based on SIMD 2012 for 2016 results and SIMD 2016 for 2017 to 2020. More information on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation can be found at: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/SIMD.

4. The categories used agree with the categories used in the main population census.

5. Analysis by English as an Additional Language was performed at a later date than the other analysis. As a result the 2020 figures are based on a slightly different dataset. The resulting differences are likely to be very small and should not affect interpretation of the figures.
