Cancellation of the Higher Exams

The Deputy First Minister has today announced the cancellation of the SQA's Higher exam diet. This means there will be no SQA exam at the end of your course; however you WILL still receive an SQA award.

The award will most likely be based on tutor estimates of the Prelim and Course Assignment. It will NOT be based on the TMAs you attempt and submit for practice. The SQA may produce an additional paper for your tutor to assess but this is unlikely to be confirmed until February / March. 

Please be assured that, as an online provider, Scottish Highers Online is perfectly set up for this eventuality. It will not have a negative impact on those of you studying with us - in fact it makes your life somewhat easier as you no longer need to make a 'Sitting At' arrangement with another centre.

Further updates will be announced as we receive them but please continue with the work your tutor(s) has set you to ensure you are fairly awarded.
