Local MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton has had a large number of emails and calls from both school students and their parents about the SQA assessments that have replaced this year’s exam diet in recent weeks. When the government cancelled the exam diet for this year ahead of the winter lockdown, they gave the impression that qualifications would be awarded on the basis of course work and teacher estimated grades. These assessments, which seem to be exams in all but name, were not mentioned at all.
Alex is trying to get a clearer picture of how these assessments have gone and their impact on pupils. As such, he is inviting school pupils in West Edinburgh to fill in his online survey with their experiences, both positive and negative, so that he can raise it with the Government. He will treat all responses confidentially.
