SQA Update – 11th August 2020

Tuesday 11th August 2020

The Depute First Minister today made a statement in parliament on the 2020 SQA process.  He outlined that all eligible ‘appeals’ , i.e., where the SQA moderation process has downgraded teacher judgement will automatically be adjusted and reflect the school estimate. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to request an appeal or provide consent for this process.

Affected students will have their certificates re-issued, with their estimated grades awarded. This means that, if you were downgraded by the SQA, the higher grade entered by your teacher will now be awarded.

When we receive further communication form the SQA we will update you on the expected timescale for these changes.  We do expect further information by the end of this week on wider aspects of the Post Results Review process.

There may be some detail required from those who require a priority appeal, simply to expedite the communication of their chosen college or university. If you are waiting on your appeal to secure a university or college place, please ensure you have emailed the details of your chosen institution and course to LasswadeHS-SQAPRS@mgfl.net
