Standard Grades are no longer available and have been replaced by the new National Qualifications.
Some Standard Grade documents are still available for information, including past papers and arrangements documents. To support teachers/lecturers through the transition from Standard Grade to National 3, National 4 and National 5 Courses, we have also produced Course comparison documents for each subject. These highlight useful areas or topics of study in Standard Grade materials that might be useful for the new Courses.
The Data Booklet has been adapted for use in digital format.
There has been no change to the content of the booklet.
Bookmarks and links from contents pages have been added (please note that where a section goes over one page, a link from the contents page has not been added to avoid a candidate taking a link to a single page and missing additional pages).
Additionally landscape pages have been re-orientated in line with the orientation of the majority of pages. Candidates may wish to enlarge the screen view of such landscape pages.
These changes are only visible in the electronic view and will not affect the printed version.
This binder draws together appropriate information on assessment from the Arrangements documents, National Assessment Bank materials and update letters for National Qualifications in the Sciences. It is intended to provide an easy access point for information on assessment and it is envisaged that it will be particularly useful to faculty heads, newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and teachers presenting more than one Science. It is an additional resource to be used in conjunction with SQA Arrangements documents and National Assessment Bank materials (NABs).
