About your results national courses

ABOUT YOUR RESULTSNATIONAL COURSES

Standard Grades

A grade is awarded for the Overall Course and to the individual Elements of Standard Grade. The grades

are awarded at three levels:

Grades 1 & 2 = Credit level

Grades 3 & 4 = General level

Grades 5 & 6 = Foundation level

Grade 7 = Course completed

Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher

Grades are awarded at A, B, C and D for Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher

Courses. If you entered for a Course and did not achieve one of these grades, details of this Course will

appear in the dialogue box on the letter that accompanies your certificate.

Some National Courses, Access 2, Access 3 and Skills for Work, do not have grades but any that you have

achieved will be listed beside other Courses or Standard Grades.

If you didn’t achieve the complete set of National Units required for the

Course, any Units that you have

achieved, and the results of your exam will be listed on the SQC.


About your results

ABOUT YOUR RESULTS

GROUP AWARDS

These qualifications are made up of groups of Units and/or Courses and will appear under the National

Group Awards or Customised Group Awards sections of your SQC. The Units and/or Courses which made

up the Group Award will also be shown. An award of distinction can be achieved for a Scottish

Baccalaureate.

UNITS

There are four types of Unit available – National, Higher National, SVQ and Customised. Only Units that

have been passed will appear on your SQC. For the Interdisciplinary Projects which belong to Scottish

Baccalaureates and for Higher National Graded Units, the grades awarded are A, B and C. The results

for these qualifications will be listed in the Grade column on both the Summary of attainment and the

Detailed record of attainment.

  • This page of your certificate is your Core Skills Profile and your SCQF Profile.

  • Your profiles are generated automatically from your results.

  • Core Skills are the five skills that are important for work. They are built into many Courses and Units, but not always at the same level as the Course or Unit itself – instead they’re built in at a level needed to pass the Course or Unit.

  • The Core Skills profile shown on your certificate shows the SCQF level you’ve achieved in each of the different Core Skills components. The highest possible level for Core Skills is level 6.
