Question Paper Order/Course Notification Form for Approved Centres

Please complete the details below to order question papers or notify SQA of a course taking place. It is a requirement that centres notify SQA of the date, time and exact location of each test session that they propose to run.

If the form is being used only to notify SQA of a course taking place but for which no papers are required, please enter “Nil” in the “No of question papers required” box. SQA reserves the right to send an external verifier to a test venue and if there is no assessment taking place on that day/time at the venue, the centre will be charged to cover the cost of the verifier’s time plus expenses.

Question papers will be dispatched within seven working days of receipt of request (normally sooner). Question papers should not be ordered more than 15 working days ahead of the examination date.

We will use these details to respond to your comments and provide you with the information you requested.
