#GE2015 Our PPT on #GE2015 is ready to view. There were plenty of fascinating aspects to #GE2015 and this PPT examines issues over voting behaviour and votings systems. There are plenty of examples which will be of value to you, especially if you do the 'old Higher' voting systems and behaviour study theme. Possibly also for the CFE Higher should a question on this area come up. If you'd like to download it, its here
The link will expire after a certain number of downloads so if you have problems contact modernityscotland. Please follow us on Twitter @modernityscot for other Modern Studies related content. 
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.
Modernityscotland 2014-15 Modernityscotland is accessed by almost all Higher Modern Studies students. The site is popular and successful. Doesn't mean it can't be better!
