SCOTTISH QUALIFICATIONS AUTHORITY (SQA)
B. Sinclair - Depute Head Teacher
National 5 Prelims
The National 5 Prelim diet will take place from 4th - 15th December 2023. Please see presentation and links below for more information.
Senior Phase Assessment
Learning in the Senior Phase is assessed using procedures and processes agreed by the Scottish Qualifications Authority or other awarding bodies. When our young people start the Senior Phase, they are presented at a level of qualification that is appropriate to meet their needs, from National 3 to National 7 (Advanced Higher level).
Replacement of SQA
The Scottish Government has announced that as part of wider education reform, SQA is to be replaced by a new qualifications body in 2024.
This new organisation will take on SQA’s current awarding functions, including responsibility for the design and delivery of all qualifications, the running of exams and the awarding of certificates, SQA’s commercial activities and international work.
