Higher and National 5 results for previous years: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/202100164857
Date received: 2 Mar 2021
Date responded: 15 Mar 2021
Information requested

Information on Higher and National 5 grade distributions over the last 5 years, broken down by SIMD.

Response

Attached is a copy of the information requested.

Note that in 2020, the absence of external assessment information and the Ministerial direction to award estimated grades led to a different pattern of attainment than would be seen in a normal year. The results for graded courses at National 5 and Higher (and Advanced Higher) should not be compared to those in previous years.
