All Falkirk area secondary schools - except one - give pupils their grades this week

Youngsters throughout the Falkirk area will know what provisional grades their school will be submitting to the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) this week – although some will have to wait a little longer to find out.

While most pupils will learn their grades on Friday, those who attend Larbert High School will get their provisional grades on Tuesday, June 22 – reportedly because the school roll is so large.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there have been no National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher exams in schools for the second year running.

Instead teachers have put forward a grading for pupils based on their school work, which will be formally confirmed by the SQA on August 10.
