To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-31362 by John Swinney on 4 September 2020, for what reason information about moderated exam results was not shared with the Education Recovery Group, in light of its role being specific to the current pandemic.
Answered by: John Swinney 28 September 2020
Along with a very limited number of officials, I am granted pre-release access to the SQA results each year to allow the opportunity to prepare for the results announcement. Members of the Coronavirus Education Recovery Group, apart from the Deputy First Minister and the Chief Examiner, do not have pre-release access to SQA results.
