I require information regarding the total paper usage every year for printing off SQA exams.

I am looking to find out the estimated number of paper used every year for exams.


In 2023 we printed:

2,420,570 – Individual exam assessment materials (question papers, answer booklets, supplementary sheets, inserts, transcripts etc)
25,592,045 – A4 page equivalent (51,184,090 printed pages, double side printed).
