Recognising Positive Achievement
We have arrangements to support candidates who don't achieve the external assessment of a National 5 Course, but who may be able to achieve the Course at National 4 instead. These arrangements are called Recognising Positive Achievement.
Arrangements are also in place to support candidates who don't achieve the National 4 Added Value Unit but who may be able to achieve the Course at National 3.
A guide on these arrangements (217 KB) is available for schools and colleges and can be used to help you explain the arrangements to colleagues, parents and candidates.
