National Qualifications - Changes for Session 2017 / 2018

The Scottish Government has recently made some changes to the way in which young people are assessed in National Qualifications. The significant change has been the decision to remove mandatory unit assessment from National Qualifications, initially at National 5 level, and in future sessions, at Higher and Advanced Higher level.

You can download Falkirk Council's letter to parents below detailing these changes and the pathways through qualification levels available for pupils.
