Exams 'should go ahead as planned', says SQA




The body in charge of exams in Scotland has told schools it is the "clear intention" that national qualifications will go ahead this spring.

The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) said exams would only be cancelled if public health advice meant people were not allowed to gather.

Education Secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville had told the BBC the latest a decision would be made was March.

The Scottish Conservatives claimed that deadline was "far too late".

Now the SQA has written to schools confirming exams will go ahead as planned unless there is a dramatic change in circumstances around Covid in the months ahead.

It says that if educational disruption such as high absence rates continues, there is a "Plan B".

This would see further guidance given to pupils and changes made to what is being assessed, but exams should still take place.

In the letter, the SQA says the timing of exams "cannot be moved for a range of reasons".

These include allowing sufficient time for marking and "informing learners of their results in good time to make decisions about their next steps".

It adds that if the Scottish government were forced to cancel exams, normal in-year assessments to determine estimate grades "could then be used to form the basis of provisional results".

The pandemic has brought particular focus onto the school qualifications system, with criticism about how grades were decided after formal exams were cancelled two years running.

The education secretary told BBC Scotland's The Sunday Show that "a basket of measures are constantly being looked at by the SQA".
