    Hey, I know this isnt the most positive thing to be asking since the results arent out yet, but does anyone know when you would find out the result of an appeal? Does it take a long time ? :confused:

    The appeals results don't come out til something like September/October so you won't find out for a while .
    But you won't need your appeals!

    EDIT: Where near Glasgow are you from btw?

    Appeals seem to have a fairly high success rate - quite a few people I know got their grades changed

    But I don't know much about how they operate, sorry.

    If you do end up needing an appeal, call up your school and they will explain everything .

    Remember, the SQA are trying to cut the number of appeals because the process is so lengthy and a bit of a pain in the bum for them, so if a candidate misses out on the grade he/she was predicted, they look at the grades that the rest of the class got and try and bump the grade of that candidate up accordingly.

    So, say Candidate A was predicted a B but got a C in the exam, the SQA look at the rest of the class - what they were predicted and what they got in the final exam and if the rest of the class basically got what they were predicted by their teacher, Candidate A would get his mark bumped up to a B.

    The candidates never know this, but the teachers get a little list telling them who has been graded this way.
