Remember there is no longer an appeals process but if you think there is something not right with your certificate or results you can phone in to school and speak to someone.
The appeals process has been replaced by the SQA Post-Results Service. This is in place to identify and address any errors which may have occurred in the marking. Barrhead High School follows the East Renfrewshire Education Department policy (see below) and can only 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 materials”. It is not sufficient for a candidate’s final award to be below the level anticipated by the pupil or even by any estimates submitted to the SQA or that achieved in a mock examination.
If your results impact on your subject choices for next year, you should come into school on Tues 13th or Wed 14th Aug to renegotiate.
Remember – whatever your results, you have options. If they impact on your Higher or Further Education choices or on potential employment, our Skills Development Scotland (Careers) Adviser will be in school on Tuesday 6th and Thursday 8th August.
