If you have recently changed your permanent home address, tell your school or college immediately. This will ensure that your SQC is delivered directly to your home, and avoids confusion or delays.

If you are going on to university or college, we will send your results to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) electronically.

If you are returning for the new session, we will send results information to your school or college so that there is plenty of time for teachers to plan next year’s timetables and give you career and course guidance.

If your SQC does not arrive on TUESDAY 4th AUGUST please contact your school or college immediately. The school or college will be able to confirm your results and liaise with us to find out what has happened to your SQC.

Remember, National 4 Courses are awarded as either ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ and have no overall grade. You will probably know the result from your teacher prior to the summer holidays and the text/e-mail you receive will simply confirm the result.

Recognising Positive Achievement

If you sit a National 5 Course and receive a ‘No Award’ then as part of Recognising Positive Achievement arrangements you may be awarded the Course at National 4. If you meet the Unit requirements, a National 4 Course award will show on your certificate. Please contact your school or college if you have any questions about what appears on your certificate.
