For the Course assessment at National 5 and Higher, you are required to submit a portfolio containing two pieces of writing, which is externally assessed by the SQA. This will be submitted to your teacher by Friday 10 March 2017.
Please be aware that the SQA has updated the template used to produce hard copies of your portfolio for submission.
You can type directly onto the template, or you can copy and paste your writing from another file.
Both portfolio pieces should be contained within one template, with a clear indication of where each piece of writing starts. We recommend using the headings DISCURSIVE and CREATIVE.
The template has a straightforward format and is set up with a common font and font size; however these can be altered if required.
Please make sure that all content is contained inside the margin lines of the template, as this is important to ensure accurate scanning.
Your Scottish Candidate Number (SCN), and a page number, must be added to the foot of every page in the template, using the boxes provided. These are for the purposes of identification.
It is recommended that the portfolio pieces are printed double-sided, but please do not use staples to collate the pages, as this will disrupt the scanning process.
Please also ensure that your work is printed clearly (e.g. no print leakage) so that it is legible.
