National A-C Higher attainment rate: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Please provide the National A-C Higher attainment rate broken down by SIMD deciles for 2021, 2020 and 2019.


I attach a copy of some of the information you requested, please note:

The Scottish Government holds information on publicly funded school pupils only. These results are therefore based on those candidates and will not be consistent to figures published or provided by the SQA which will generally cover all candidates.

The Scottish Government does not currently hold pupil level data for 2021 SQA results. The information provided therefore covers 2019 and 2020 only.
