Try deleting the word EXISTS

AND  (
                        SELECT COUNT(1)
                FROM userScore US2 WITH (NOLOCK)
                    INNER JOIN lkup_VARoadSkill VA WITH (NOLOCK) ON US2.VARoadSkillKey = VA.VARoadSkillKey
                WHERE U.userKey = US2.userKey
                    AND SU.sessionUnitKey = US2.sessionUnitKey
                   
                    AND VA.VARoadSkillAddGradeIn = 1
                    AND US2.userScoreValue = '1'
                  )  > 10

Try this...

AND EXISTS (
                        SELECT COUNT(1)
                FROM userScore US2 WITH (NOLOCK)
                    INNER JOIN lkup_VARoadSkill VA WITH (NOLOCK) ON US2.VARoadSkillKey = VA.VARoadSkillKey
                WHERE U.userKey = US2.userKey
                    AND SU.sessionUnitKey = US2.sessionUnitKey
                   
                    AND VA.VARoadSkillAddGradeIn = 1
                    AND US2.userScoreValue = '1'
                HAVING COUNT(1) > 10
                  )

Please recheck the following JOIN conditions

U.userKey = US2.userKey
SU.sessionUnitKey = US2.sessionUnitKey

since neither U nor SU is specified as an alias anywhere in the subquery.

If you are using the keyword EXISTS you can't compare the result with a value.
If you want to check for a collection of records that has more than 10 entries then TONY TAYLOR provided the correct solution, otherwise reformulate your question and post entire query.

@erikTsomik,

I fully agree with Vitor.

It seems that you are not familiar enough with JOIN and EXISTS operators and syntax.  Please reformulate  the question because we do not have enough elements to help you.

Hope this helps.
