SQA Update – 3 April 2020


Please find below a FAQ document in relation to current SQA decisions due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and the impact on the SQA certification process for 2020. Please note that this document has been produced by the SQA for learners, parents and carers. This document supersedes our own SQA FAQ document published on 27 March, which has now been removed from our website.



We know this is a stressful time for all our young people and their families and we thank you for your continued and ongoing support. We hope that the document below will provide you with some reassurance as we continue to work closely with the local authority and the SQA in relation to the submission of estimate grades.



It is important you are aware that we await further detailed guidance from the SQA and that more refinement and clarity will become available in the next few weeks. We will continue to share any SQA updates and will post information on the school website, twitter and the school app. Thank you all for your support and cooperation in these challenging and very uncertain times.


We advise that all senior phase pupils (S4-6) and their families read the document and familiarise themselves with the content.
