S6 - Advanced Higher



Advanced Higher

Advanced Higher in Art & Design offers a natural progression from Higher and this option is open to any student who has achieved a Higher pass in Art & Design at grade A or B. The AH course consists of a combination of two units - a mandatory ‘major’ unit of 80 hours study (2 credits) from Design, Expressive or Art & Design Studies and an optional ‘minor’ unit of 40 hours (1 credit). Both units must be on a related theme or area of study to suit the student’s personal skills and interests. This course requires a minimum of 6 periods of study weekly, plus work in students’ own time on sketchbooks, research and folio work. There are no formal exams for Advanced Higher; assessment is based on class work folios and research.
