In S4, pupils develop their Reading, Talking, Listening and Writing skills as well as their knowledge and understanding of the language and of the countries where the language is spoken through the contexts of Society, Culture, Learning and Employability.
National 4 requires pupils to pass 2 assessments in each skill in two different contexts. They must also pass the Added Value Unit which consists of Talking and Reading assessments. There is neither a prelim exam nor an end of year exam. All assessments are marked internally.
