Assessment materials for Environmental Science

We have published the following assessment materials for National 5 and Higher Environmental Science:

We previously advised in our subject-specific guidance for Environmental Science that we would publish a partial question paper for National 5 and that we would not be releasing a question paper 1 for Higher. However, we have now published the assessment materials following feedback from teachers and lecturers that these would be helpful when gathering evidence.

The use of 2021 question papers and marking instructions is optional. If you are planning to use the question papers with your candidates, you can split them to support assessments that candidates complete during class time.

For more information on gathering evidence for National 5 and Higher Environmental Science, please refer to the subject-specific guidance on the following webpages:
