Number of Advanced Highers completed by pupils

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Scottish Qualifications Authority,

Could you please release the data concerning how many pupils did 1 advanced higher, 2 advanced highers... up until the maximum amount of advanced highers attempted in the 2018 exam diet that has just passed and also how many of those pupils achieved all A's within each subcategory.

Could you format your data in the following way

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Number of pupil entered into 1 advanced higher - Number of pupils who achieved a grade A in all 1 of these advanced highers

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Number of pupil entered into 2 advanced higher - Number of pupils who achieved a grade A in all 2 of these advanced highers

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Number of pupil entered into 3 advanced higher - Number of pupils who achieved a grade A in all 3 of these advanced highers

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and so on, until the maximum number of advanced highers any pupil has entered into.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Brown
