Paper leaks or other exam mishaps?Watch
Of course the SQA is far from perfect, though they got a deserved kicking up the bum back in 2000 when they got everyone's results late/wrong/both. I think since then, they're terrified to muck anything up, so everything is done on their tip toes.
I can't remember the SQA ever having to deal with a leaked paper - this of course doesn't mean to say it hasn't happened - who knows what has gone on that we're not aware of - but as far as I'm sure, there's not been a problem of this sort.
A few others though - just ask anyone who was due to receive their results four years ago!
What do your parents teach out of interest ecossaise? My mum's a languages teacher (this thread sprang out of a conversation with her yesterday over the P2 leaks on the forum).
Yeah! However it seems like that's been the only major cockup the SQA have had to deal with. I mean there was the mistake in credit maths last year (I didn't notice it until my friend pointed it out after the exam), the supposedly impossible admin exam this year, but there's hardly been any criminal charges involved. So what are the SQA doing that the English boards aren't?
There are often mistakes in the papers- they just usually notice them and get you to change them before hand. This happened in my german exam last year (it was quite good meant i saw the paper 5 minutes b4 the exam started so had time to think about the topic).
