Advanced Higher Returns – Appeals Evidence

Advanced Higher work is automatically returned, without charge or request, upon the completion of its assessment in June. Where Advanced Higher folio's are sent to SQA as Appeals evidence, their return needs to be requested using a Request for Return of External Assessment Material form and the appropriate fee paid, in the same way as other levels of Artwork.
