Information requested

Please accept my email as a request for the information in relation to Appeals 2022,

I wish to request the percentage of successful appeals,

total number of submitted appeals,

geographical location breakdown of appeals, with success rates.

Appeals outcome from private schools and home educated


The information relating to appeals and successful appeals is available on our website using the following link

Appeals Statistics - SQA

The Geographical location breakdown of appeals, with success rates is contained within the attached spreadsheet.

Appeal statistics by education authority often involve very small numbers meaning that comparisons may not be meaningful. Additionally, the appeals systems in place in each year from 2019 to 2022 have varied fundamentally as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and it is therefore extremely challenging to compare statistics between years.

The Appeals outcome from independent will also be available via the link above 

We are unable to provide any information on home educated candidates as we do hold this information.
