Post Results Services – SQA

After results day on Tuesday 9 August, if the grade you have been awarded is lower than your estimate, you will be able to appeal your results by contacting SQA directly or by going through your school, college or training provider.

Your school, college or training provider will discuss your appeal with you before sending SQA evidence to support your estimated grade. However the decision to appeal your grade is yours.

Discuss this with your school as soon as possible after getting your results.

The appeal can be prioritised if you have a conditional place at university or college, or in training or employment that depends on your grade.

This is a free service.
