MyExams – Build your own exam timetable

MyExam Screengrab

The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) today announces that students can now download an app to build their own personal exam timetable on their mobile phone - and 1,500 of them have already registered their interest.

This is a fantastic way for students to view their personal exam schedule at a glance, e-mail it to themselves or to friends, and integrate it into their other calendars.  The 2010 exams begin on Wednesday 28 April.

The app is currently available to download free on iTunes and is being made available for Google and all other major mobile phones at the start of April.

The free app also provides information and resources to help students prepare for their exams, such as SQA’s Your Exams guide, packed with what to expect and what to do and information on how results and certificates will be delivered.  The app also provides links to other useful websites, such as MySQA.

Students signing up for the MySQA service will be sent their exam results by text and e-mail a day earlier than when the paper certificates are delivered on Thursday, August 5. To register for results on Wednesday, August 4, by text or e-mail, students should visit www.mysqa.info.

SQA Head of Marketing, John McMorris said: “SQA is committed to providing guidance and support to help students through this important time. We are delighted with the interest that has already been shown in this app.  It’s a great way to help students organise their schedule and access other useful services, such as exam guidance and MySQA.”
