New Appeals Process

SQA have produced a new set of guidelines for schools with regard to examination appeals.  These more stringent guidelines spell out in some detail the criteria and conditions for which an appeal can be made.  More detail can be found by following the link below


SQA Help

If you don’t understand your certificate, or if you think something is missing or wrong, contact your school or college immediately and ask for help. If there is a problem, your school or college will contact us to sort it out.

A telephone service — SQA’s Candidate Advice Line — will also be available from Tuesday 5 August to Friday 8 August. You can ring this for advice on the content and layout of your certificate. The advice line number can be found on the letter that accompanies your certificate.

For general enquiries at any time of the year, you can call our Customer Contact Centre on 0345 279 1000.

Skills Development Scotland also has information and advice online to help you plan your next steps. Visit exam results support
