Best wishes to all of our young people formally receiving their SQA exam results today (Tuesday 10 August).
Cllr Ron Sturrock, Vice Convener of Children and Learning Committee said: “Session 2020-2021 again saw a change in how our young people were assessed and awarded grades. I would like to thank our young people for their perseverance throughout a year which for some of them included periods of absence from school due to self-isolation regulations, as well as those periods when our schools were closed to the majority of young people. I would also like to thank our staff for their work in ensuring that the requirements of the alternative certification model were met.
“For our young people, I hope your exam results are what you hoped for and wish you good luck in your next steps, whether that’s staying on at school or moving on to your chosen career pathway.”
All candidates will receive their results by post today (Tuesday 10 August). Candidates who have activated their MySQA accounts, will also receive their results by text.
