The SQA Exam Timetable 2020 is now out!

When are your exams next year? Are they nicely spaced out or all bunched together?


Thanks ellie.oakeyx for letting us know

Not too bad, I have my highers all in the first 2 weeks of exams season, which could be seen as good or bad
But after french I have a 20 day wait until music!!
At least I do have any exams one day after another, though its mainly 1-2 day breaks :/

Exactly the same for me. Glad to be done (fairly) early but I would prefer a bit more time before AH English.

Ooh, interesting - what did you do at Higher and what do you want to do at Uni?

Yeah, would have been nice to have a break before AH English but I suppose the dissertation and folio will be done in advance which will mean less stress in the final exam.

I did Business, English, History, Modern Studies and RMPS at Higher and I'd like to do Philosophy and Politics at uni (no idea where!). Yourself?

Mon 4th- H English (if i pass)
Mon 11th- H Maths
Wed 13th- H Human Bio
Tue 19th- H Chem
Wed 27- H Music

They are all spread out, better than last year (all in the first 2 weeks, though got like 3 week break afterwards) though I wish music was earlier though tbh you don't really have to study for music.

AH French - Wednesday 6th May
AH Music - Wednesday 27th May
AH Mandarin (Simplified) - Thursday 4th June

I’m glad that like my past exam leaves, this is very spaced out.
I’m also glad because after my last exam I don’t need to come into school until graduation week!

It’s honestly mind boggling how quickly school has gone.

I have Nat 5 Maths on Tuesday 12th May in the morning and Nat 5 Engineering science on the same day in the afternoon. Just one hour in between to get something to eat.

Yeah, it must be really hard to deal with that as both subjects aren’t easy and are challenging. Best advice I can offer is keep your head in the game and don’t lose focus, give all subjects equal times and don’t let time interfere with your results. Take the hour as a little rest as you probably have written a lot and just maybe open a previous past paper and try some questions in the hour while having food and staying focus and relaxing. However you don’t need to write the answers otherwise you’ll be going in the exam with a sore hand and won’t be able to write as much. Also good luck! At the end of the day it will annoy you that because of time you maybe got a grade you didn’t want, and all your hard work went in the bin, don’t let time interfere with what you can achieve and really want!!!!! Again good luck!!! Imagine getting the grades you want for both subjects, it will make you so proud that you were able to do something in which many and by that I really do mean Many and probably including myself, would struggle dealing with. Get the grades and show off your skills and hard work cause if you get the grades you want for both subjects that will be Magical as you only had an hour in between. Think of how happy you’ll be.

Classic SQA. Who on earth thought that one up? I could maybe understand if it was two subjects that were very different - but most people taking engineering are taking maths.

Yes, the bank holiday this year is 8/5, but in some areas the council might not have agreed to swap it for the schools (if they haven't yet, it could still change!). Either way, your school will need to be open on the 4th to let you sit your exam
