SQA Results Service

Parents of exam candidates 2013-14 (“old” S4/5/6) will by now have received information regarding the new SQA Results Services via pupil post. The sent letter explained the new system of Results Services which replaces Appeals.

The centre can submit a request for a clerical check or marking review if it holds clear and compelling evidence that there is a reasonable possibility that an error may have occurred with the marking or totalling of marks in a candidate’s script. Please be aware that marks can go up and down and candidates must give written permission for such a check to take place.

Please click here for a copy of the letter. Continue reading

London Trip 2014

We were up and at the train station for 7:30am on Monday morning. The weather wasn’t the best but at least it was dry. The train journey to London whizzed by and we were on the Tube to our hotel in no time at all. We arrived at a Premier Inn which would be our home for the week and unpacked our bags. We gathered outside about to head off sightseeing before a meal at the Hard Rock Café. After our meal we had a long walk where we visited 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and took some group photos before arriving back at the hotel. You could tell already it was going to be non-stop. Continue reading
