Incomplete evidence contingency arrangement - learners

Note: The incomplete evidence contingency arrangement closed on Friday 25 June.

How did you take disruption to my learning into account?

If you were unable to complete all the required assessments for your course by the provisional results deadline on Friday 25 June, your school, college or training provider may have flagged you as 'Incomplete Evidence' when entering your provisional result(s). If you do not know if this is the case, please contact your school, college or training provider.

This means that you will complete your assessments at a later date, which will allow your school, college or training provider to form a provisional result for you. In this instance, your school, college or training provider has until noon on Friday 3 September 2021 to submit your provisional results to SQA.

This arrangement was only in place to support learners who were unable to complete all of their assessments by 25 June due to severe disruption to learning. Your school, college or training provider made the decision to flag you as 'Incomplete Evidence'.

It has been agreed that I will complete my assessments at a later date - how will this work?

This arrangement is in place for learners who have undertaken all the required learning for the course but have been unable to complete the required assessments. Therefore, no additional teaching time at your school, college or training provider is required.

Your school, college or training provider will identify the assessments that you need to undertake to complete your course.

Your school, college or training provider will arrange a suitable time, after the summer holidays, for you to undertake these assessments.

If you are leaving school, college or your training provider this summer, you will need to return to them to undertake these assessments. Universities and colleges are aware that some learners will be certificated for their courses at a later date, and they should account for this in their admissions process.

If I complete my assessments at a later date, will I still be able to appeal my results?

Yes.

You will be able to appeal any results submitted to SQA by noon on Friday 3 September. However, due to UCAS deadlines, it will not be possible to use the priority appeals service.

Will my school, college or training provider inform me that I have been included in the incomplete evidence service?

Yes, your school, college or training provider should have discussed this with you before the provisional results deadline of 25 June.

What will appear on my certificate on 10 August?

If you have been entered for the incomplete evidence contingency arrangement, your certificate will not include a result for that subject(s) on 10 August. You will be certificated for any incomplete evidence subject during the week of 13 September.

My centre has decided I'm not eligible for the incomplete evidence sevice. What can I do?

Speak to your centre about your concerns. They will be able to explain why they believe you are not eligible.

How do I appeal a provisional result after 3 September?

If you have been flagged as using the incomplete evidence contingency arrangement by 25 June and have then been able to complete any outstanding assessment evidence for a provisional result to be submitted by noon on 3 September, you will be able to appeal. Full information will be available in our Appeals section. Learners with a conditional offer should note that a priority appeals service will not be available due to higher education institute timescales.
