Update: Intermediate/Higher Page (2014 Past papers)

The links to the SQA past papers for the 2014 Higher, Intermediate 2 and Intermediate 1 English exams are now in the "Exams" section of the Intermediate/Higher page. Here are the direct links to the latest papers:

*NEW link 2014 Intermediate 1 (SQA): Close Reading & Critical Essay .pdf 
*NEW link 2014 Intermediate 2 (SQA): Close Reading & Critical Essay .pdf
*NEW link 2014 Higher (SQA): Close Reading & Critical Essay .pdf

Update: Intermediate/Higher Page

I've updated the layout of the Intermediate/Higher page (for the "old" National Qualifications). Each section now gives a clear indication of the part(s) of the course the resources support. Check it out here.

I'm not going to be teaching the "new" Higher course until the 2015/2016 school year but I'll try to update that page when I get a second.

The National 5 English exam is on Wednesday 30th April 2014. There are two papers:
Reading for Analysis and Evaluation 1pm-2pm
Critical Reading 2.20pm-3.50pm
I've updated some of the links on the S3/S4 page to provide more revision support; here's a selection of the new ones:
National 5 - Reading for UAE (SQA): Specimen Question Paper
National 5 - Critical Reading (SQA): Specimen Question Paper
National 5 - Critical Reading (SQA): Additional Questions

SQA Digital Question Papers
The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) set the exams for National 5 pupils. There are no past papers as this is a new course - the Credit Close Reading papers from Standard Grade will help with exam revision, as will the Close Reading and Critical Essay papers from Intermediate 2.
