Pupils will receive the results of their 2018 SQA exams on Tuesday 7th August. These will be mailed out to the address held for each pupil on the school system.
Pupils can also register to receive their exam results by text message here.
There has not been a system of ‘appeals’ for the SQA examinations for a number of years. This has been replaced by the Post-results Service. This service operates after candidates receive their exam results. If a school or college is concerned by a candidate’s result and believes the final mark does not reflect their expectations then they can request a priority marking review, clerical check or a marking review of the exam paper and other externally assessed components, such as a portfolio. If the clerical check or marking review leads to a change of grade (either up or down), this will be amended on the SQA’s computer system and a new certificate will be issued to the candidate. There will be no consideration of ‘alternative evidence’ with this service. If the original grade remains unchanged following the check/review, the school or college will be charged for this service. Further details on the SQA’s Post Results Service are available here.
