Additional information for Music performance assessments

Titled 'Information for Teachers and Lecturers for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Music - Performance Assessment', the additional resource includes the modified performance timings, assessment conditions and instrument requirements for all three levels in session 2020-21. It also includes updated candidate assessment records and scaling tables that teachers and lecturers can use when assessing candidate performances later in the session.

This additional resource is available from the NQ Music page on the SQA Secure website and you can arrange access to it through your SQA co-ordinator.

Our recently published subject-specific guidance for Higher and Advanced Higher Music also details the modified assessment conditions that can be applied to the performance components this session. These modified assessment conditions apply to the National 4 added value unit and National 5. We will shortly update our subject-specific guidance for National 4 and National 5 to reflect this.
