Units are assessed as pass or fail by the school/centre, following SQA quality assurance to meet national standards They ensure that required skills, knowledge and understanding have been achieved Units are assessed as pass or fail by the school, following SQA quality assurance to meet national standards

COURSE ASSESSMENTS NATIONAL 5 Course Assessments form part of National 5 qualifications Recent changes to National 5 resulted in the removal of the Unit Assessments. This means that the Course Assessment has been strengthened to maintain the reliability of the qualification. Many courses have an Assignment and a Question Paper (exam) which are marked by the SQA. For practical reasons, other sources have components which are assessed by schools. A few subjects are entirely assessed by schools in accordance with SQA guidelines and requirements They are graded from A to D or as No Award They are set by the SQA.
