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