Appeals 2021

During March, SQA is asking a range of individuals and groups including learners, parents/carers, teachers and national organisations to share their views on appeals. This will help to develop the appeals process for 2021.

Learning disruption

We are working to ensure that the 2021 alternative certification model is fair and equitable for all candidates. As part of this work we are considering, with partners in schools and colleges and wider stakeholders, the impact of COVID-related disruption on learners.

To support centres and learners in dealing with disruption we have made adjustments to National Qualifications, such as reducing course content, removing external assessment, and increasing the time available to practitioners to gather evidence and submit provisional results. As the level of disruption we face is unpredictable, we are continuing to assess the situation and the most appropriate response and will provide more information on this as soon as possible.
