Consultation on further modifications to Drama and Music performances

We acknowledge the challenges teachers and lecturers are facing with learning, teaching and assessment in Drama and Music, while complying with Government guidelines, and the impact this could have on the performance assessments. To address this, we are planning further modifications to these assessments to support teachers, lecturers and candidates as much as we can.

Today, we are launching two new consultations on our proposed modifications to National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Drama performances, and National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Music performances.
