National 5 and Higher sciences updates to coursework assessment tasks and course specifications

We have revised the coursework assessment task documents for the following National 5 and Higher sciences:

We have clarified the conditions of assessment for the assignment to reflect updates made during main diet procedures. Centres that were following the previous guidance correctly will have very few adaptations to make. We have also updated the course specifications to reflect this clarification.

More information is available from the National Qualifications sciences webpages, above, and the history of changes section of each document.

Centres that have already undertaken the assignment with their candidates are advised to contact the qualification manager for their subject.
