National 5 Art and Design specimen question paper update and webinar

We have made a change to the wording of the mandatory questions in the National 5 Art and Design question paper. The wording has been reviewed in order to improve accessibility for candidates at this level.

The specimen question paper and marking instructions for questions 1(b) and 7(b) have been revised in line with this change, and are available on the National 5 Art & Design subject page.


We are hosting a webinar in order to explain the changes made to the mandatory questions, and to clarify the requirements of the question paper as a whole. This webinar will be hosted by the Principal Assessor for National 5, and will take place on Wednesday 4 December from 4.30 pm.

Spaces are limited to one delegate per centre, and are available to book via our online events booking system.
