Do I need to provide a medical certificate?

We do not ask for a medical certificate as supporting evidence for granting assessment arrangements. However, if this has been provided by the candidate or parent/carer, then you can include this in the evidence. Your evidence of need for candidates requiring support should involve detailed records of need for each candidate and part of this evidence would include information and evidence from subject teachers about support needed and given in class. Further information relating to quality assurance can be found on our dedicated Quality Assurance page.

Is there any guidance on collating evidence for putting an assessment arrangement in place?

Guidance on evidence needed to support a request for an assessment arrangement, with examples of good practice and evidence requirements, which should help if SQA carries out a quality assurance visit, can be found on our Quality Assurance page.
