Deputy First Minister John Swinney has announced that Scottish Highers and Advanced Highers have been cancelled for 2021.

He said that although schools are safer the exams would not be fair given that a lot of pupils have lost a lot of school time due to having to isolate due to Covid.

Instead a model similar to National 5 school teacher estimation of grades will be used.
