Digital question papers for candidates with additional support needs

SQA is publishing digital versions of the 2021 National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher question papers for candidates with additional support needs.

The 2021 digital question papers will be available from the SQA Secure website from Monday 19 April.

Why is SQA publishing digital question papers?

We normally provide centres with digital question papers in response to assessment arrangements requests, which are submitted by centres before the exam diet. However, as the 2021 exam diet is cancelled and the Assessment Arrangements Request (AAR) system is closed, we are making digital question papers available online for all centres that need them.

Digital question papers are designed for use by disabled candidates or candidates with additional support needs. They should only be used by candidates that have an assessment arrangement requirement and have had classroom practise in using them.

They are compatible with MS Windows and Apple devices.

Which subjects will be available?

Digital question papers will be available for most subjects, based on the assessment arrangements requests we receive year on year.

The following subjects and levels will not be included, as we do not normally receive requests for them:

If your centre requires digital question papers for any of the subjects listed above, please email question.papers@sqa.org.uk
