The SQA will issue students with their results on the 4th of August. Whilst we hope that students will be pleased with their achievements, we know that some students may be disappointed.
In June the SQA released details of their post-results service, the link to this announcement can be found here. This year we can submit student evidence to the SQA and this will be reviewed alongside submitted coursework. This service will be free to schools.
Who can request a Post-Results Review?
Only schools can request and submit post-results reviews. Parents and students cannot contact the SQA to arrange this. Critically, this service is only available to students whose final award is lower than the estimate submitted by the school to the SQA. This means that we cannot submit requests for all students who are disappointed with their result(s), only those that have had their estimate grade lowered through the SQA’s awarding process.
How will I know if I am eligible?
The SQA will issue us a list of students that are eligible for a post results review and we will give this to subject teams for consideration. If we decide to make a review request on a student’s behalf we will seek consent for this.
If a student or parent wishes to be considered for a post-results review they should email LasswadeHS-SQAPRS@mgfl.net stating their child’s full name and the subject requested. You will receive a response from the SQA Coordinator informing you whether or not a request can be made. If it can, we will move ahead with this for you.
What if I need my Post-Results Review urgently for College/ University?
Priority Reviews can be submitted, if eligible, and these are resulted quickly. If you wish to make a request for this service, you also need to provide the details of the university/ college and the course applied for. SQA will communicate the results of priority reviews directly with universities and colleges to ensure a quick resolution.
What if I’m disappointed with my grade, but not eligible for a Post-Results Review?
We would ask you to consider your performance across the year; whether or not you have been ‘on track’ to pass and whether you have demonstrated attainment at a grade higher than you have achieved. The grade you have achieved may be disappointing but that doesn’t mean it has been unfair.
Subject teams have taken full consideration of a wide range of evidence from all students, including prior attainment to infer estimate grades for students. Furthermore, subject teams’ estimates have been subject to rigorous quality assurance by senior leaders, to ensure that they were fair, robust and reliable.
If you feel strongly that your grade has been unfair then you may make a complaint in writing to the Head Teacher using the same email LasswadeHS-SQAPRS@mgfl.net.
