Schools which were previously charged up to £40 to appeal a pupil’s grade will not face a fee this year, following the cancellation of exams due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Schools can appeal if a pupil has been awarded a lower grade than the one estimated by their teacher.
Only the school can appeal, so pupils or parents seeking to challenge a grade will have to discuss it with teachers.
Evidence that can be submitted includes classwork and prelim results.
Appeals will be considered by Scottish Qualifications Authority senior subject specialist examiners.
The deadline for making an appeal is August 14 for pupils with a conditional university or college offer, and August 21 for other pupils.
Reviews of appeals for pupils with a conditional university or college offer will be emailed to schools and colleges by September 4.
