Agency get pat on back.

PUBLIC confidence in the SQA is more than four times higher than it was a year ago, according to a new survey.

The new survey, due to be published by the SQA tomorrow, has found that pupils and parents are ready to trust the agency again.

It found that 55 per cent of those questioned believed the SQA had performed better this year than last year, when just 12 per cent of people thought the SQA was improving.

Forty three per cent of people polled said they believed the agency's credibility with the public was high - up from just 21 per cent last year.

However, 61 per cent still had "concerns" about the SQA.
