Geography maps for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher

We are providing centres with printed copies of maps to accompany the National 5, Higher and Geography question papers that are being made available on the SQA secure website.

National 5 Geography maps will be delivered to centres week beginning 18 January. We expect to despatch printed copies of the Higher Geography map, and the Advanced Higher Geography map and supplementary items, by mid-February.

We are currently finalising Higher and Advanced Higher question papers and marking instructions, which will be published on our secure website in January and February.

You have the option to use the 2021 Geography question papers as internal assessments for gathering learner evidence to inform provisional results. You can extract content from the question papers as needed, and the question papers can be split to support assessments which are carried out during class time.

Receiving your centre's delivery

The maps and supplementary items are packaged securely and are being despatched by Royal Mail. If there are no staff on site to receive your centre's delivery, the materials will be held by Royal Mail and will require redelivery. If you have any questions or concerns about your centre's delivery, please contact
