Higher Business Management
Our Higher course delivers the Business Management Curriculum as outlined in the SQA documents.
We use teacher-led discussion, cooperative group work and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.
Assessment and Homework
Pupils are formally assessed using SQA assessment resources. At Higher level there are three units of work which are assessed - there is one formal assessment per unit. We also issue homework which covers each unit of work. This homework is a vital part of the course as it helps to develop the answering techniques which are vital for success at Higher. The final grade comprises an external question paper during the exam diet (70 marks) and a report which is produced internally but externally marked (30 marks).
Recording and Reporting
The SQA assessments and homework results form the basis for the comments in parental reports. These results are also used to inform decisions about exam presentation.
