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.
CFE Higher Modern Studies The Assignment You may well have started work on the new CFE Higher Modern Studies course. The Higher Modern Studies Assignment is worth 1/3 of your overall mark. As such it is a critical piece of work. But it should be one you enjoy, that gives you the chance to spend time on an issue you are genuinely interested in finding more about. By doing well in the Higher Modern Studies Assignment you can take out some of the stress of the final exam, knowing that you have banked a good grade. This article takes you through some good practices and hopefully empowers you to get the best grade you are capable of.
