National 5 Modern Studies Assignments

 
  1. So the Higher Modern assignment is due soon, and I'm a bit lost with it to be honest. I think I've sort of grasped what help my teacher has given us, but I'm still unsure on how long it's supposed to be.

    If anybody could give me a rough estimate in pages and/or words that would be great

    Is anybody else finding this assignment difficult?

  2. yes! i am also struggling with this although the other day our teacher gave us a handout which really helped.

    My topic is "is the government doing enough to reduce gender inequalities in the uk?" and i began by giving some background information on the gender pay gap then did 3 main points.

    these were : comparing the uk system to affirmative action in the usa (for and against making that a uk system)

    should childcare be more affordable (for and against)

    tackling discrimination (are we doing enough arguments from both sides)

    i used youtube videos, an online survey i made on suvrey monkey, internet and book research and came to a conclusion about which point i thought would be best and also assessed how reliable each of my sources were.

    hope this is helpful if you need any more information or possibly information from my teachers help sheet just ask

  3. Our teacher gave us a lot of information about the assignment, but even she was unclear of what the SQA want. We have just done our write up and I figured mine to be around 2700-3000 words long (and we had to memorise that!). The research sheet was the biggest downfall for me as your not allowed to directly copy anything off of it, so mines was basically all in code apart from quotes. I found it really tough and im glad to just have it all over and done with.
    Mine was on Gender Inequality in the Workplace and my three approaches were the 50/50 Campaign, Free Childcare until the end of Primary and Compulsory Living Wage.

    Hope this helped .

There is a range of material available, including examples of candidate evidence with commentaries, as part of our Understanding Standards programme.
