HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

Your Tutor will mark your all your certified assessments. Any re-submissions, known as remediation, will also be directed and remarked by your tutor. Your work will then be cross-marked by an in college subject expert, a process called moderation. It is only then that a result can be sent to the Awarding Body for certification.

A Pass is not final until all cross checking procedures have been successfully completed. Your pass will be notified to the SQA for certification.
