The total number of Assessment Arrangement (AA) requests for diet 2007 was 42,194, submitted on behalf of 11,400 candidates.

Number of AA requests







 The profile of AA requests by level is broadly the same as for 2006. More than half of the requests came from Standard Grade candidates. However, this proportion has continued to drop over the past few years. On the other hand, Intermediate 1 requests as a proportion of all requests have increased. This mirrors the changing profile of overall entry numbers where some centres are replacing Standard Grades with Intermediate qualifications.
