The Scottish Greens education spokesman also questioned why exams could still be “conducted in a normal manner, at the end of a very abnormal [school] year”.
In response, Mr Swinney told Mr Greer: “We are planning on the basis of the SQA diet taking place in the spring of 2021 but I am not impervious to the issues that he raises, which I recognise are significant issues we have to consider and judge.”
He added: “The last thing I want is young people are not in any way able to properly realise their potential and the benefit of the learning activity they have undertaken.
“We’re trying to approach the school year from a perspective of minimising disruption, of maximising the opportunities for assistance in learning.”
