National 5 and Higher English Portfolio

National 5 and Higher English Portfolio

The deadline for the complete portfolio is the 10th March.

You must submit two pieces of writing – one expressive (Personal reflective or creative) and one discursive (persuasive or discursive).

These must be typed up onto the SQA portfolio template.

You can access the template from the SQA website. Follow the steps below:

Open SQA Higher English (

Go to section entitled submitting coursework

Here you will find a word document which is the template. (Same template for Higher and N5.)

Please make sure that both essays are submitted on this template.

This is an SQA requirement as your portfolio work is scanned once it is received. If it is not on this template it cannot be scanned and therefore cannot be marked!
