N5 update

Detail shared with SAGT by Angela Baird of SQA..

“Due to feedback received recently from practitioners, it has been agreed that the duration of the National 5 Geography question paper will be extended by 15 minutes so that, from 2015 onwards, candidates will have 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete the question paper. The 2015 exam timetable on the SQA website will be updated to reflect this; however no changes will be made to hard copies of the timetable. Practitioners should refer to the online version of the 2015 exam timetable for the correct start and finish times.”

Information will go out in “Centre News” this week and an announcement will be placed on the N5 Geography page of the website.
