Who are we?
The need for a clear space to discuss the future of examination and certification in Scotland arose from a discussion between Isabelle Boyd (@CoradCor1), George Gilchrist (@GilchristGeorge), James McEnaney (@MrMcEnaney), Neil McLennan (@neiledinburgh) and Harold Raitt (@mr_raitt).
But we want this forum to be a genuinely open space for sharing thoughts, facts and proposals about exams in Scotland. Over just a few days, 700+ followers have joined us, ready to start the discussion on Twitter @examscot, or with the hashtag #examscot.
The following additional individuals have already expressed their enthusiasm to join in the discussion here on the website by contributing opinions and proposals:
- Professor Bob Davies

- Professor Emeritus Brian Boyd
- Barry Black
- Drew Burrett
- Iain White
- Peter John Yuill
- Russell Taylor
