Exam Results


Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) Results 2019
A message from the Rector, Gareth Warren 

I’m extremely proud of this year’s exam results and I want to congratulate all of our S4, S5 and S6 pupils on their outstanding individual achievements.  These results are a culmination of years of hard work and dedication by our pupils, superbly supported by the staff at Morrison’s Academy.  It is wonderful to see the standards of attainment achieved by our pupils across a broad range of academic subjects, and I’m particularly pleased that their efforts and hard work have been so richly rewarded.

Below you will find some detail around our results and how our pupils performed collectively. 

The 2019 SQA results were outstanding again this year, with Morrison’s pupils continuing to perform well ahead of the national average.  In the results posted yesterday, our pupils sitting Advanced Higher exams achieved a 91% pass rate, with 59% of those at A Grade.  One in four of our pupils achieved straight As across all of their chosen subjects.  

Results were excellent at Higher, too, with our S5 pupils achieving a pass rate of 95% and 43% of these awards at Grade A.  One in five of our pupils achieved straight As across their chosen subjects.

The trend continues for our S4 year group, with a 94% pass rate at National 5 and one in five of our pupils gaining Grade As in all of their subjects.

There were a great number of brilliant success stories in individual subjects, too.  Art students and the Art department are celebrating a flawless performance, with a clean sweep of A Grades across all three levels.  The Advanced Higher French, Modern Studies and Physical Education pupils should also be congratulated with a 100% A Grade pass rate.  The English department achieved notable success with 100% passes at both Advanced Higher and at National 5 level.  In Maths, 89% of Advanced Highers and 69% of Highers awarded were As or Bs.  These are just a few of the successes which I could mention.  A summary of our results at each level are in the table below:

Once again many congratulations to all of our pupils and I speak for all of the Morrison’s Academy team when I say we look forward to welcoming them back and celebrating their achievements.  For those that are moving on to universities or the next stage in their lives we wish them every success.
