Following the Deputy First Minister’s announcement in September regarding changes to assessment in National Courses, SQA have now shared some more information on what the changes will be for individual subjects. The removal of units and unit assessments means that course assessments will need to be strengthened. The changes can be viewed online: http://www.sqa.org.uk/sqa/78398.html and SQA have compiled this helpful FAQ section.
Revised course documents are to follow in April.
We will be updating all of our subject Nutshell documents as soon as possible.
