In terms of further SQA advice, we would advise the following. SQA released updated advice on 20 April 2020 explaining how they intend to certificate all qualifications by 4 August 2020 and the subsequent appeals process that will be available. This included updated guidance to schools on the procedures they should adopt for providing estimates to SQA on pupil performance.
SQA have also updated their frequently asked questions sections for schools, colleges, employers and parents.
Please note that estimates provided by the school will form only one part of the process in determining final awards, it is the SQA who will make the final decision and not the school. Therefore, please do not contact the school regarding estimated grades as we will be unable to discuss this with you.
These are the guidelines which will be followed by all Secondary Schools within Falkirk when determining estimates for pupils.
