I believe that statistics on how many people get A's, etc. are available on the SQA website. They're pretty well hidden if memory serves but you can find all sorts of stuff like breakdowns for each subject, by level and even by gender I think. All I remember was that 2 people got 5 A's at AH last year and 25 (myself included ) got 4 A's. Good luck finding it anyone who's interested (it's a PDF if that helps)...!

Thanks for the link, I always find these stats really interesting. So 245 got AAA last year... I wonder by what factor that compares to A-levels (not that I want to spark another AH vs A-level argument!!!)

EDIT: To answer the question of this thread; in 2003, 1,258 candidates got AAAAA in highers (plus 57 who got 6 As). So, 2.1% of all higher candidates (including those who do a single higher, etc) get 5As, but 12.4% of those sitting 5 highers get straight As. But if I worked it out as a percentage of ALL students, it would be a much lower percentage.

Oh, and the majority were female

I did AH maths, applied maths, physics and computing. I found them all pretty much the same in terms of difficulty, but I wasn't terribly interested in the physics (only did it cos most engineering departments require/strongly recommended it) so I guess that was the hardest for me to revise for - just couldn't get myself excited about mechanics and electric fields!
