New National Qualifications: SQA

sqaIn this year of significant change to our assessment & examination system, we hope the information below will go some way to answering some questions and perhaps alleviating angst. Of course, please feel fee to call the school and speak to any of our Principal Teachers or Depute Headteachers who will endeavour to answer your enquiry.

SQA have information dedicated to supporting parents whose children are experiencing the new National Qualifications. Click here to visit this area of their site. 

 We also highly recommend the "Nationals in a Nutshell" series of documents produced by parents, for parents. These explain, on a subject by subject basis, what you need to know about these courses. To find them, click here.

Video Support from SQA

SQA have produced a short film, Beyond the Exam, which highlights how key parts of their qualifications system work. It is intended to give candidates and their families a clearer insight into the journey of an exam paper, from its creation through to results day.

The film also introduces the new Results Services and explains what happens when candidates are unable to sit an exam or assessment as a result of an illness or if they have not received the mark they expected.
