National 5 Computing Science Coursework Preparation

Pupils and parent/carers have been notified about the upcoming coursework task that pupils will complete in school on Tuesday 7th March and 8th March 2018. This task will contribute 31% of the final SQA grade awarded after the May exam. The task is externally marked and must be completed without teacher assistance.

To help pupils achieve their best in this very important coursework task we will be running four after-school sessions to provide pupils with additional preparation tasks and support. These will complement preparation work conducted in class time over the next few weeks.

There is no obligation to attend the after-school sessions, these are being provided to offer additional support for those pupils who wish to take advantage of the extra preparation opportunity.

The dates for the sessions are:

  • Friday 26th January
  • Friday 2nd February
  • Friday 23rd February
  • Friday 2nd March

Sessions start at 12:45pm and finish at approximately 2:45pm.

Pupils will be provided with further information about these sessions in class.
