Different Approaches Between Scottish & English Exams
When my family were very much younger, we lived up in Scotland – father was serving at a base up there and we followed. I was too young to go to school then – trailing behind my eldest sibling jealously. There was certainly an interesting lesson to be learnt with the language – although in the same physical piece of land, the accents up in Scotland vary from England and Wales so much more noticeably than in other areas of the world. The schools differ too – there are completely different examination boards and the children work to more exacting disciplines in the major subjects. There is a wider range of subject at secondary level taught in Scotland whereas English schools have up until reently conentrated on much smaller range of subjects. In England there are a range of examination boards, the Scottish qualificatins Authority is the only governing body.
