Co-ordinator Update 28 April 2023

Non-academic appeals process update

We recently published an updated document, ‘The Appeals Process: Information for Centres’, that sets out the grounds and processes for appeal in relation to a range of decisions SQA may make, excluding academic judgements. Please note that this is different to the academic judgement appeals service – Appeals 2023 – for the National Qualification diet for 2022–23.

A version of this document has been available for many years, so you may already be familiar with it. The key updated section is ‘Ofqual or Qualifications Wales (for qualifications regulated in England and Wales)’ in relation to specific instances of malpractice. We have also made minor wording amendments throughout.

The updated document is available on the ‘Centre guide to SQA appeals procedures’ page of our website.
