Assessment Arrangements Request (AAR) system

How do I request assessment arrangements?

Each year in October, SQA will send an email to all SQA co-ordinators containing a user ID and security code which are required to register on the AAR system. You must keep this information securely as you will need them for setting your centre’s secure password, logging into the system, and any future password changes. To access AAR, please visit

How do I see which requests I have already entered?

On logging in, the Assessment Arrangements main menu will display a number of options whereby you can run reports, create new requests, and update existing requests etc.

What is the final date for submitting assessment arrangement requests?

The system for submitting requests will provisionally open on 25 October 2021. This date, and the final date for requests will be confirmed in the 2021-22 Key Dates publication. You can also access updates that we publish regarding the AAR system (e.g., submission date deadlines) from the Information menu on the login page. Please check the Information section each time you access AAR.
