NAB Information

Each of the 3 units studied in the Higher course has an associated NAB (National Assessment Bank) assessment. Each NAB is composed of a multiple choice theory test comprising 20 questions. A mark of 12 or more is required to pass this aspect of the NAB. If a student fails to pass the NAB at the first attempt, then they will be given a second chance within a matter of weeks to achieve a pass.

As well as the theory NAB, practical NABs are built into the day to day running of the course. It may be possible that a student passes a practical NAB without even realising that they were sitting it!

NABs should not be confused with the coursework. To obtain an overall course award, a student must pass the NAB for each of the course units. A pupil does not necessary have to pass the coursework, but the actual mark achieved here will be used directly in calculating a student's overall course award grade.
