SQA Post Results Service – August 2019

Marking Review Request Form

 If you think that there has been some kind of significant mistake in the marking process, for instance if a result is considerably lower than that expected then you may use this form to request the school considers making a request to the S.Q.A. for a Marking Review. A separate form must be submitted for each course.

The form will open on Tuesday 6th August at 8am and close on Wednesday 15th August at 5pm.

Initially your request will be considered by the subject specialist staff in school who will carefully consider the entirety of the evidence held within school records. Upon completion of this analysis the Curriculum Leader responsible for the course will inform you whether or not the school will be placing a request with the S.Q.A. You will hear from the Curriculum Leader during the week beginning Monday 19th August 2019.

The decision to proceed with a marking review will only be taken by the Curriculum Leader if the result is significantly lower than expected, usually by at least two clear bands below the estimated grade provided to all pupils in March and if the school holds firm evidence of previous success, usually based on prelim results supporting the estimated grade for the subject.

The Post Results service is not an ‘appeals’ service and in recent sessions very few requests have resulted in a change to the awarded grade following a marking check

Do you need this for University or College entry this year?

If a UCAS offer is dependant upon a marking review then this is considered a Priority Request. These are processed differently by the school during the school holiday and these cannot be dealt with once term begins. If you have a Priority Request you must indicate this in the form and provide all of the required details by Friday 9th August 2019.
Please note that it is important you complete all fields in the form below especially the checkbox that acknowledges the S.Q.A. reserve the right to put marks down as well as up. The school requires the permission and acknowledgement of the candidate if over 16 and in the instances of pupils under 16 years of age the parent must also acknowledge this to process any requests.
