Having now seen the examination papers, and spoken to students who sat them, there seems to have been no unwelcome surprises. The extracts from texts, and the standards of the questions set, were reasonable and fair. It appears the SQA have remedied any issues in a quick and effective manner.
Students and teachers put an enormous amount of time and effort into preparing for examinations, coursework and assessments over the school year, and it is essential that they can have confidence in the examination system. It is important that standards and tasks are reliable and explained clearly. While we don’t expect any more issues to arise, it will be important that the SQA keeps everyone informed, and monitor the marking and verification process for any issues arising before results day.
We’d like to say well done to all the students who sat exams today; we are sure their hard work will pay off and we wish them the best of luck, whatever challenge they are moving on to.
