NextGen: HN news

UCAS Arrangements

We have been engaging with UCAS over the past 12 months to ensure articulation routes from NextGen: HN programmes are as smooth as possible.  

NextGen: HN qualifications are visible on the UCAS Advisor Portal within the application process and display as:  

  • SQA Higher National Certificate (NextGen) 

  • SQA Higher National Diploma (NextGen) 

Learners and advisers will now have entered predicted grades for NextGen: HN awards on the UCAS Advisor Portal. These will be in line with the NextGen: HN grading model.  

Predicted grades are entered by choosing:   

  • P (Achieved)  

  • M (Achieved with Merit)  

  • D (Achieved with Distinction)  

We are currently developing arrangements for the resulting process with UCAS and will share details on these discussions in due course.
