Year Group: 10 – 11
Exam Board/Syllabus: AQA
Examination/Assessment Dates (including coursework details and deadlines):
The course is divided into two; coursework 60%, exam 40%. The final assessment will take place at the end of May in year 11.
The coursework can be worked on until the end of May and will consist of two main themes. Students are encouraged to explore and investigate ideas using a wide range of materials and techniques through a number of tasks that build towards an independent and creative portfolio. We develop work through a number of specialist areas – fine art, sculpture and printmaking. The exam will begin in February when students receive the question paper and they will develop their ideas towards a final outcome to be completed in a 10 hour controlled test in April/May.
