Pupils with significant difficulties in English and/or Maths may be offered a place on the Access 2 courses which the Department offers. They and others may also be offered places on the social and life skills ASDAN courses.In S3 and S4 some pupils with learning difficulties may meet the criteria for Alternative Assessment Arrangements which must be agreed by SQA.
