Changes to National Courses
There are plans to revise the assessment of National Courses from 2017-18. Units and unit assessments will be removed meaning that course assessments will need to be strengthened. The changes can be viewed online:http://www.sqa.org.uk/sqa/78398.html . The SQA has compiled helpful FAQ section: Changes-to-assessment-of-National-courses-your-questions-answered. The National Parent Forum of Scotland will be updating all its subject Nutshell documents as soon as possible. The Nutshells are a very useful source of information for parents and pupils.
