Printed copies of 2021 question papers

Centres will receive printed copies of 2021 Higher and Advanced Higher question papers for subjects where the question paper includes high resolution images. We have already provided printed copies of National 5 question papers. We are providing printed copies to support centres and candidates, as we recognise that not all centres will be able to print the question papers in colour or replicate the quality and clarity of the images.

We will provide centres with printed copies of question papers and resources for the following subjects:


Advanced Higher

These will be delivered to centres week beginning 22 February.

Centres will still be able to access PDF copies of these question papers on our secure website, and teachers and lecturers can extract content from the question papers as needed.

You have the option to use the 2021 question papers as internal assessments for gathering learner evidence to inform provisional results this session. The question papers can be split to support assessments which are carried out during class time.

Receiving your centre's delivery

Centres will receive printed question papers for each of the above subjects, based on candidate entry information. The materials will be packaged securely.

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