Appeals 2021 - Information for learners

Appeals outcomes

We will issue outcomes of appeals to schools, colleges and training providers during the week of 25 October. They will tell you the outcome of your appeal.

If there has been a change to any of your grades, SQA will issue you with a replacement certificate later in the year.
