A FLAGSHIP qualification aimed at broadening the study of Scottish history, geography, culture and literature has failed to spark the interest of pupils, according to new figures.

Statistics show only 159 pupils sat Scottish Studies in its first year, despite the subject being promoted heavily by the Scottish Government.

The poor take-up has now sparked calls for the subject to be made mandatory by a leading member of the Association for Scottish Literary Studies.
