Consultation on further modifications to Drama and Music performances

We have published consultations on further modifications Music and Drama performances, as we acknowledge the challenges that teachers and lecturers are facing with learning, teaching and assessment in these subjects while complying with the latest Scottish Government public health guidelines.

Our proposed modifications aim to offer more flexibility and optionality for centres and candidates to prepare for the assessments, while complying with current restrictions.

For Music performances, teachers and lecturers will be best placed to decide which approach will benefit their candidates. There is no requirement for candidates to change instruments

Please read through the relevant consultation document before completing the survey.
