National Parent Forum's Revision in a Nutshell guides for the new Highers

Below are the links to the National Parent Forum's Revision in a Nutshell guides for the new Highers (20 subjects) and updated Revision guides for National 5s (20 subjects).

Tina Woolnough, the Edinburgh representative on the National Parent Forum of Scotland and co-creator of the Curriculum for Excellence in a Nutshell guides for parents, has asked us to highlight the new Nutshell guides.  The original ones were well received two years ago when the nationals were first being introduced and we hope you will find these equally helpful.
The revision guides contain direct links to SQA specimen question papers, exemplar question papers plus past question papers, where appropriate.  They are designed as digital resources and work well on IPads or other tablets.

The guides advise learners to check with their teachers to make sure that material is relevant.  They are primarily intended to provide the SQA direct links by subject in one place, and to give some additional revision opportunities (if relevant) including web-links to school pages or to the websites of subject-relevant organisations.
