2023 2024 Term 1 Newsletter
Congratulations to everyone on your results today. We hope you have been rewarded for your efforts.
If your result is not as expected and you wish to be considered for an Appeal please read the SQA leaflet regarding Appeals sent to you during the holidays. The information can be accessed directly on the SQA website through the following link: Appeals 2023
Making An Appeal
You can submit an appeal yourself through the SQA’s website at sqa.org.uk/appeals from 9.00am on Tuesday 8 August 2023.
If your appeal is a priority appeal, i.e. a place at university, college or a training course depends on a particular grade, you must submit the appeal via the above SQA website address by Tuesday 15 August. This will be actioned by the school to comply with SQA deadlines.
If your appeal is a non-priority appeal you are advised to speak to your teacher at the start of the new term although the final decision will rest with you. You must submit non-priority appeals online with the SQA by Tuesday 29 August.
You will be unable to request an appeal if the school has already submitted evidence through the Examination Exceptional Circumstances Consideration Service during the exam diet.
Once the SQA have processed the appeal and returned the outcome, their decision is final – you cannot appeal the decision.
What Happens When An Appeal Is Submitted?
Appeals 2023 has a different process to the one used last year as alternative assessment evidence will not be considered.
This year, if you appeal your grade, a senior SQA marker will carry out a ‘marking review’ of your SQA marked assessments but they will not be re-marked.
A marking review simply checks that:
– all parts of your SQA-assessments have been marked
– the marking is in line with national standards
– the marks given for each answer have been totalled correctly and
– the correct result has been entered in their system.
Please note that after being reviewed, your result could stay the same, go up or go down.
The Dyce Academy Community and Enterprise ambassadors took part in Northsound 1’s Cash for Kids Schools Challenge in which they lead various activities to fundraise for in-school initiatives. They planned events such as a dress down day, a raffle, guess the sweets in a jar and who could forget our most popular event, Sponge a Teacher. The events were a massive success and the pupils raised over £600. Northsound 1 stopped by to tell us we had been placed 3rd in their schools challenge and because of this they matched our funding, making us come away with £1,315 for in-school support initiatives. Well done to everyone involved!
