SQA Appeals Process
Appeals 2022 Information for learners
Posted on the SQA webpage on Thursday 16th June
If your final grade is lower than the estimate your school, college or training provider submitted to us before the exam, you may be able to make an appeal directly to SQA, or through your school, college or training provider. You should always discuss the discrepancy between your estimated grade and your final grade with your teachers/lecturers or centre staff to determine whether the estimated grade and supporting evidence support an appeals request.
What happens next?
If your appeal request is accepted, SQA will carry out a clerical check of your exam script and assignments. SQA appointees – practising teachers and lecturers – will also review the assessment evidence that your school, college or training provider sends to us to decide your final grade. The final grade might be different to the estimate that your school, college or training provider sends us. In this case, you will be awarded the higher of the two grades based on the two sources of evidence.
An appeal can be prioritised if you have a conditional place at university or college, or in training or employment that depends on your grade. Please confirm with your school, college or training provider if you have a conditional offer as all priority appeals must be validated by your centre.
Full details and an e-copy of a booklet for learners on appeals is available here. A hard copy of the booklet will be sent to all learners during the summer holiday.
