Modernity Scotland is an approved SQA centre for Higher Politics.

Session 2020-21

Welcome to the new Modernity Scotland.

We have a completely new National 5 subscription and new Advanced Higher Modern Studies (Political Issues and Law and Order) content.

As always, we have comprehensive, up to date coverage of Higher Modern Studies and Higher Politics.

New features are School Class Groups providing individual pupil accounts for subscribing schools.

Each Course has digital note taking facilities.


SQA has updated schools and colleges with information on exams and coursework in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • There will be no 2020 exam diet.
  • Results for National Qualifications will be based on teacher estimates of performance. These teacher estimates will be based on completed classwork e.g. prelims and other assessments as well as coursework which may have been completed or partially completed.
  • Teachers have now submitted these estimates.
  • Teachers and the SQA have the best interests of pupils at heart. We are confident the vast majority of young people will achieve the grades they deserve, as they normally do.
