St Andrews University

SQA is disappointed that an error at St Andrews University has resulted in some of their applicants being able to view confidential information. We are especially disappointed in view of the fact that the university has admitted that a similar error was made by them two years ago.

The error occurred whilst St Andrews University staff were uploading exam results which they had received from UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). We are expressing our disappointment to the university in the strongest terms and seeking urgent assurances that such an error can't happen again.
