In a statement to the Scottish Parliament, Education Secretary John Swinney said: “Pupils have already lost a significant amount of learning time because of coronavirus. My priority is to ensure that learning is assessed fairly and consistently so that pupils can be confident in the results they gain.“Given the real risk of further disruption to education, it would not be sensible or fair to plan for a full exam diet in 2021. Coronavirus has not gone away. If anything, it is making a comeback.
