Some Scottish students have exams next year cancelled

Written by on 7 October 2020

Students preparing to sit National 5s in Scotland next year have had their exams cancelled.

The government said it was making the move due to “the level of disruption likely to be faced by some or all pupils and students this academic year” as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

A statement added the Deputy First Minister John Swinney had asked for an “alternative approach” to awarding the qualification to be worked up “based on exam centre estimates” and teachers’ judgements.
