1 Data on leaver destinations are collected separately from the information on leavers used in earlier tables in this publication. Only those leavers from the destination survey that could be successfully matched to qualifications via Scottish candidate number or all of the following four characteristics - school, gender, postcode and date of birth - are included in this table. See background notes 2.2 to 2.4.
