Central Verification of Internal Assessments

Unit Evidence Requirements

Centres should ensure that they are using the current Arrangements (Fourth Edition, published March 2006).

Centres should note that the ‘Candidates folio’ (see p.21 of the Arrangements) refers to the work undertaken by the candidate during the Course and is distinct from the assessment end-product.  There should be evidence of coursework submitted for each candidate.

In order to minimise ‘Not Accepted’ decisions, centres should consult last year’s Internal Assessment Report (available on the Access 3 Social Subjects page of the SQA website) for further guidance prior to submitting pupils’ work.
