SQA Update

SQA have provided an update with regards to estimating grades for National 5, Highers and Advanced Highers.

The SQA are asking teachers to "continue to exercise their professional judgement and estimate a learner's grade and band based on their demonstrated and inferred attainment of the required skills, knowledge and understanding for each National Course".

SQA are taking steps to refine the existing system and ensure it is as fair and robust as possible.

Schools will receive detailed guidance on how to determine and submit this refined estimate information by 20 April 2020.

In conclusion, the SQA "fully appreciate that this is an uncertain time for learners who have worked hard throughout the year and will now, with their families, be worried about what this means for them."
