Revision support for learners taking National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher exams
We have published revision support to help learners prepare for this year’s exams, given the significant disruption to learning and teaching they have experienced due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
This is part of a wider package of support for learners that we announced on 1 February, when it was confirmed that the ‘Scenario 2’ contingency had been invoked, and includes the significant modifications we have already made to this year’s exams and assessments.
Revision support is available on our website for all courses that have an exam and is tailored to each course, including:
- Advance notice of content that will or will not be in the exam: For some courses, we have published information on which broad topics, contexts or content will or will not be in this year’s exam. This will help learners to plan their revision and focus more on the parts of the course that will be in the exam, though learners can still use their knowledge of other parts of the course when developing their answers to questions.
- Study guides: For some courses, we have published study guides to help learners practise answering exam questions. These give hints and tips on how to approach different types of questions, including how to gain marks.
- Study notes (learners’ own): In a small number of courses, learners will be allowed to prepare a short study note that they can take with them into the exam.

Where to access the revision support
You can access the revision support documents directly from the National Qualification subject pages of our website at www.sqa.org.uk/nqsubjects.
Learners can access the revision support from Ushare — our free online platform where users can share open-source revision materials and teaching resources that support SQA qualifications.
Education Scotland, in partnership with e-Sgoil, is also running a series of study support webinars for learners working towards National Qualifications in 2022. Details are available from the e-Sgoil website at https://www.e-sgoil.com/study-support
