Meeting of the Parliament 27 June 2013

Hugh Henry (Renfrewshire South) (Lab): Presiding Officer, you will be aware of claims made this week by a former senior examiner that the higher maths paper has been dumbed down. Previously, the team of senior examiners for higher maths resigned. Those people know the higher maths paper better than any bureaucrat or politician. Pupils, their families and teachers need to be assured of the integrity of higher maths. Will the First Minister order an investigation into what is going on with higher maths?
