SQA Results Day 2020 is on Tuesday 4th August this year!

Everyone will receive results by post, and if you've signed up to mySQA, you should receive a text or email from SQA on or just after 8am on results day.

This is the place for all things results day, so whether you just want to chat to some other students, have some questions about results day, or you need any help or advice on the day itself, there will be a team of TSRians here to help Image

It's obviously a very different situation we're all in this year, with exams having been cancelled. So, how's everyone feeling about it?

:sadnod: Is really a rubbish situation for you all Know this is very easy for someone not getting results to say, but no matter what happens it will be ok. It might not immediately be ok, it might need a bit of figuring out, but there will almost definitely be another way of getting where you want to be

Yeah for admin I can expect from A-no award (and probably for other subjects) and that’s really worrying :/

I’m worried about the SQA modifying the grades while my school usually does well and my grades were very good last year Im unsure about whether they might bring them down because they assumed they were over predicted

I signed up for MySQA last year when I was doing my Nat 5's to get the text, are you supposed to say you want the text every year or does it just assume automatically?

Understandable to be worried :sadnod: Equally though, if you've got the evidence of being on track to achieve a certain grade, then that's definitely a good thing! How were you doing before the schools stopped in terms of the grades you were working at vs what you're looking to achieve?

i was feeling fairly comfortable about results day because all my evidence points towards me getting the exact grades i need for my conditional but now i've heard about the sqa's "moderating" and how they've (apparently) severely marked down kids from schools that don't traditionally perform well. my school is ranked below #200 in scotland and although i know we could be ranked even lower, i'm absolutely bricking it

Well done on your prelim grades! That is definitely a positive in the sense that (assuming your prelim was set at the right level) there is as good evidence as we can get that you're capable of those grades! On the one that was a B, that would still be a really good grade, and though I know it probably doesn't help much as the results do matter now, longer term, it won't really affect what you do beyond uni. Hope this helps at least a little

At the minute, we don't yet have the full picture/data as it's under embargo, but can definitely see why you're worried, in that they've not been very transparent about the whole thing Remember that if you get lower than the grade your school submitted to the SQA, you (via your school) will be allowed to appeal it through the post certification reviews. In normal years, universities do consider candidates who have missed their grades on an individual basis to decide whether they will accept them anyways, and this will still happen this year too. I know this won't be a massive reassurance, seeing as it really is a wait & see situation, but there will be people here on the day who can help if you need, no matter what letters are on the page/email/text

Letter grades. Bands never show up in our certificates

I feel that! My school is only in the very late #100's and now I'm really scared. Plus I am a bit above some of my class mates in grade(not trying to brag it is just relivant) because I think that the sqa might move my grade down to make the gap between our grades smaller. Which I understand but I worked really really hard in those classes and need these grades for next year. My school has not proformed well in the last few years at all with less and less kids getting the grades they need to get to uni or college
