Coronavirus support for SQA International Centres

We know this is a challenging time and we're doing our best to give you all the information, support and resources you need, as quickly as possible.

SQA is committed to basing our decisions on the principles of fairness to all learners, and the safe and secure certification of our qualifications, whilst recognising the current challenges we all face.


We emailed international centres in May, to support teaching staff with making assessment judgements.
