Alternative Certification Model: 2021 - centres

Should schools and colleges share provisional results with candidates?

Yes. Schools and colleges should now have shared provisional results with learners.

When will information on the QA approach for the alternative certification model (ACM) be released and when will national quality assurance occur?

The national quality assurance exercise is now complete. Centres will have individual feedback reports for the subjects and levels they were selected for, and Key Messages reports have been published on NQ subject pages.

What will appeals look like?

SQA consulted learners, teachers, lecturers and national organisations on what the 2021 appeals process should look like. Find out what you need to know about the appeals service.

Do key dates still stand?

Key dates have been uploaded to SQA Connect and communicated directly with schools, colleges and training providers. This information will be updated as more dates become available.
