Pupils and students across Scotland will receive their Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) grades on Tuesday 4 August 2020.
But, of course, this year will be very different. The qualifications which get the most attention are National 5s, Highers and Advanced Highers. This year these qualifications will not be based on candidates’ coursework and exams, but rather will be based on their teachers’ judgements.
This blog, from the Scottish Parliament’s Information Centre (SPICe) , will look at the cancellation of the 2020 exam diet and the method of certification the SQA has put in place for those qualifications.
