Should a pupil wish to appeal any of their provisional grades, they may make an appeal directly to the SQA. Appeals can be based on one of three grounds:
· an appeal against the academic judgement made
· an appeal against an unresolved administrative error
· an appeal on grounds of discrimination where:
· there has been a breach of the Equality Act 2010 or your school, college or training provider failed to provide agreed Assessment Arrangements
The registration service will open on Friday 25 June and will close on Thursday 12 August. Appeals will be processed after Results Day on Tuesday 10 August.
Should any pupil be waiting on a result for a university or college place or for an employment or training programme, their appeal will be processed as a priority and they must register that they want to appeal by Thursday 12 August.
KGS can also submit a priority appeal up to Tuesday 24th August and 27th August for a normal appeal
More information is available here:
The final decision to appeal lies with the pupils. Should they decide not to appeal, they can withdraw their request by Thursday 12 August by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
