Following the Scottish Governments’ announcement that exams would be cancelled for 2021, here is an update from SQA regarding how assessments and coursework will be gathered and an update from Mr Ross explains how the school will be ensuring that all pupils get the predicted grades they are working towards. SQA Update
There is also a link to the assessment window which is similar to previous year’s prelims but focuses on gathering SQA evidence for predicted grades. These assessments will feed into the ongoing gathering of SQA evidence. Predicted grades will be based on the latest and best examples and evidence of pupil work and assessment throughout the year but this assessment window could be an important part of this process.
The following part of the website contains information that would usually be helpful to pupils preparing for exams, but due to the ongoing Pandemic and cancellation of SQA exams for 2020/21, please refer to the most current guidance above.
