SQA Exams and Exam Leave 2018
S4-6 pupils are currently completing their courses and preparing for forthcoming exams. Please find below information about these exams and exam leave arrangements. Pupils will be taken through key information regarding their exams and assessments during the Exam Briefing assemblies.
Please find below a copy of the SQA Exam Timetable At this time, we hope this provides pupils with the appropriate information to help them prepare and organise their study time effectively.
In addition, please find attached a copy of the SQA Your Exams booklet; this provides advice and guidance for pupils sitting exams.
Individual SQA Exam Timetables
All S4-6 pupils will receive their SQA Personal Details sheet in Form Class. It is important for all pupils and parents/carers to check this for accuracy (e.g. occasionally, a home address requires to be updated).
All S4-6 pupils will receive a copy of their SQA Individual Timetable. This will contain specific information for every pupil about their exam room and their exam seat number.
Occasionally, incidents in life can occur which can impact on a pupil’s ability to attend their exam. In these extreme circumstances, usually caused by illness or family bereavement, the school can make a submission to SQA through the Exceptional Circumstances service. If your child is affected by an exceptional circumstance during the SQA exam diet please contact myself or your child’s Pupil Support Teacher to discuss this. The Exceptional Circumstances service requires verified documentation from a professional such as a doctor and we can provide you with more guidance if this is required.
If an exam is on a Monday or Tuesday, the 2 study leave days before an exam are from the working week (ie Saturday/Sunday will not be counted as exam leave days). In addition, if a pupil has 2 exams on consecutive days then they will take 4 days exam leave.
