Exam Results

SQA Results 2016

Once again, we are delighted to congratulate our 2016 candidates on excellent exam results this summer.

We are very pleased to report many notable successes among this year’s exam results. The raw statistics do not tell us about the hard work on the part of individual students and their teachers. The results are even more impressive when one considers that Kelvinside students also made outstanding contributions to sport, music and drama, community service, adventurous activities and many other areas of School life. 


National 5 (S4): Over half of the results at National 5 were at ‘A’ grade. Almost half the year group achieved 8 passes at National 5 (A-C). 

Higher (S5): 44 candidates were presented for five Highers. 9 candidates achieved the clean sweep of at least 5 ‘A’ grades. Over half of the results at Higher were at ‘A’ grade. 

Advanced Higher (S6): The pass rate (A-C) at Advanced Higher was 90% and over a third of the results were at ‘A’ grade
