What is the course about?

How will I be assessed?

National 4 is internally assessed as PASS or FAIL and there is no final exam at the end of 4th year.  During National 4 you will be practically assessed against 6 areas of your performance in 2 activities. These will be continually assessed during each activity. You will be required to complete a ‘Factors that Impact on Performance’ workbook throughout the year. There is also an ‘Added Value Unit’ which focusses on your preparation, conduct and reflection about a chosen performance.
