This guide to the National Qualifications awarded by the SQA aims to help you make realistic, well-informed option choices for S3 and the senior phase.
Use it to find out more about the new National Qualification courses and how you can progress through the different levels of learning. Each course description outlines:
- what you will be learning
- how you will be assessed
- the next level of learning
- related career areas.
Schools will not be able to offer every subject at every level of study. Please see your school’s Option Choice Guide for information on which courses are available to you.
Skills for Work courses are also National Qualifications. Select the Skills for Work option on your right to find out more about this range of work-related courses.
You will find more information and other useful resources including Past Papers, Study Guides and Exam Tools on the School Learners pages of the SQA website.
