Planned changes to freestanding Biology and Human Biology units at SCQF levels 5 and 6 from session 2020-21

We are updating the unit specifications and unit assessment support packs for freestanding Biology and Human Biology units at SCQF levels 5 and 6.

The units are no longer part of the course hierarchies; however, some units still contribute to National Qualification Group Awards, centre-devised awards and Scottish Wider Access Programmes (SWAP). To support delivering centres, we are updating the unit specifications and unit assessment support packs to reflect the revised content in the National 5 and Higher courses. We will also generate new codes for the freestanding units at SCQF levels 5 and 6.

The revised unit specifications and unit assessment support packs will be available at the end of June 2020, for delivery from session 2020-21.
