The Top 10 Scottish Schools by A Level A* and A grades
In this section we give you an assessment of the Top 10 A level Schools in Scotland
for 2012. These positions are compiled from the average A* and A grade percentages
out of all candidates taking A levels in Scottish schools. Note that many Scottish
Schools offer Advanced Highers instead of A levels and these are listed separately.
Children would typically choose an A level Scottish school if they were intending
to apply to an English University.

Note.1. There may be a few gaps in our data, because the information is not freely
available or a school will not supply it or the school’s sixth form is too small
to warrant being included. For those schools who refuse to supply data, we have
to assume they are lower graded schools.
Note 2. Exam results are not the only criteria by which to judge a school (read
our eGuide on selection factors click here). Indeed some of the schools
in this Top 10 table are quite selective on their admissions. Be aware your child
may not necessarily thrive in a high pressure academic environment –
