Advanced Higher Graphic Communication
All of S1 through to S3 and the N5 and Higher courses lead up to this – the Advanced Higher course is primarily a pupil driven course which will have them select a project of their own and work on this throughout the majority of the year. The aim is to develop independent skills in producing and researching a design brief and utilising all the skills they have learned to date in order to produce a graphic solution which satisfies the brief.
Further skill and knowledge is addressed throughout the year which may or may not be essential to their individual projects but is featured in the end of year exam.
The assignment is externally marked by the SQA and is worth 50% of their grade with the exam making up the other 50%. This is a challenging course but pupils can find the route that suits them in producing their assignment along with discussion with the teacher.
