When I did my exams, back in the early eighties, I got my results in August. Computing power was a fraction of what it is now. I would imagine the last paper from the last exam is marked by mid June. Why does the SQA not use the number crunching power available now to release the results by the end of June? It must be possible. Results could even be drip fed to students electronically as they became available. Why the wait until the second week in Aug?
