FOI Request - 2021 Grade Boundaries For Higher Courses

Request 101002825083

I would like to submit an FOI request for information related to the 2021 Alternative Certification Model for the award of Highers in secondary school.

I am specifically interested in the grade boundaries applied in a selection of subjects for the awarding of final grades. I am also seeking information about the methods of assessment used in each centre.

[Spreadsheet provided].

Our grades were not determined by a single assessment but by teacher professional judgement of demonstrated attainment, supported by evidence including assessments based on SQA materials.  As such the evidence generated through those assessments provided only a partial contribution to the provisional grade.  Thus, there is no overall dataset to provide. This information is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information Not Held.
