About course reports

Course reports are produced by SQA’s principal assessors and other senior appointees. The reports highlight areas of the 2023 exams and coursework where learners performed well, and any areas that proved demanding.

They also contain helpful and constructive advice on preparing learners for the coming year’s assessments, as well as statistical data relating to grade boundaries.
