How will I be assessed?
GCSE Unit 1: Coursework Portfolio (60%)
During Y10, you will begin your actual GCSE coursework. You will produce one of at least two projects, which will equate to 60% of your overall GCSE Grade.
Unit 2: Externally Set Assignment (40%)
This is another full project completed in Y11. You will be able to select one question from several, covering a range of graphic communication. Following an unlimited period of preparation, research and development you will manufacture final pieces during 10 hours of supervised time. This will signify the completion of your project, and it will be marked as a whole.
Your overall success on the course is measured by your ability to evidence the 4 Assessment Objectives, set by AQA for all Art & Design courses.
