USA mid-term elections The USA mid-term elections took place on Tuesday 4 November 2014. The results have been serious bad news for President Obama and will have a big impact on his remaining two years in office. This PPT presentation looks at all the issues a Higher USA (CFE or NQ) needs to examine; voting behaviour, campaign strategy, power relations with plenty of stats, evidence and video links.

Scottish independence Referendum Powerpoint The Scottish independence referendum was one of the defining moments in Scottish politics. Quite apart from the debates and the excitement, the aftermath reveals crucial data and information for students of Higher Modern Studies. Whether you are doing the CFE or 'old' Higher, Democracy in the UK, Scottish Government or Voting Systems and Behaviour, this file contains the kind of examples which will be of value to you in asessments. Written by John McTaggart and the Advanced Higher Modern Studies students of the GCU Advanced Higher Hub. You can download The Scottish independence Referendum PPT from here.
Higher Prelim paper Both CFE and 'old' Higher Prelim Papers are ready for posting. Posted securely to the named school/college contact, ready for photocopying. Prelims no longer can be used for appeal purposes but the 'dress rehearsal' educational value of a prelim cannot be underestimated.  
CFE Higher Modern Studies The new Curriculum for Excellence (CFE) Higher Modern Studies course builds on the skills and knowledge of National 5 Modern Studies course. As such there are differences between the CFE Higher Modern Studies and the Higher Modern Studies course which has been in operation since 2007. Some schools/colleges in Scotland will continue with the 2007 style Higher Modern Studies course and others will change to the CFE course. It really depends which school/college you attend. Both qualifications are worth the same UCAS points and Modern Studies continues to grow in respect and popularity. Higher Modern Studies is the 6th most popular SQA Higher. This article explains the main differences between the two courses which will run this year.
