Higher and Advanced Higher assessment materials

We are continuing to publish Higher and Advanced Higher question papers and marking instructions on the SQA Secure website. Teachers and lecturers can use these question papers to support internal assessments when gathering evidence for provisional results. The question papers can be used in full or in part or not at all, as appropriate.

Question papers and marking instructions are now available for most courses. Question papers and marking instructions for the following courses will be published next week:

We have also published coursework assessment tasks on the SQA Secure website for some subjects that normally have an assignment released annually. This includes Administration and IT, Computing Science, Design and Manufacture and Graphic Communication.
