Co-ordinator Update 29 April 2022

Electronic files for Higher Applications of Mathematics and National 5 Administration and IT exams - update

We have published e-files for learners to use in the Higher Applications of Mathematics exam taking place on Wednesday 4 May.

E-files for the National 5 Administration and IT exam taking place on Friday 6 May will be published on Tuesday 3 May.

Where to access the files

The electronic files are available on the SQA Secure website, and you will need login credentials to access them. You will then be able to download and store the files until the day of the exam.

How to store the files

The files are confidential and must be subject to the same level of security as the question paper.

You must store the files securely by password protecting them and saving them in a location where they cannot be accessed by learners or unauthorised persons before the exam takes place. The files must remain secure and confidential until the day of the exam.

Setting up the files on the day of the exam

On the day of the exam, the files should be set up on each PC or device, ready for learners to use. Please ensure that an authorised member of staff is available to do this.

An invigilator must be present when the files are being set up, as the invigilator is responsible for ensuring that each learner can access the files before the exam starts.

We also advise that you make contingency arrangements to ensure that another member of staff can access and set up the files in the absence of the designated staff member.
