GCSE Art Exam and Mock Exam Course Structure

I have updated and refreshed my GCSE Art Exam/Mock Exam course structure sheets. They now reflect the 1-9 grades, include the revised wording to match the AQA Specification and go up to 24 marks instead of 20.

As before the jpegs and Powerpoint that includes the tick boxes can be downloaded below but if you want to have the editable Photoshop (or the ‘Graphics’ files – a mac based app that was used to create the original files) files then please drop me a message in the comments section.

GCSE Photography Guides

GCSE Photography HandoutsI have just updated my GCSE Photography guides that I give to students to support their work. They now show more clearly the different levels of complexity within each task, so I expect ALL students to complete the green statements/questions, MOST students to complete the orange statements/questions and SOME students might attempt the blue statements/questions.

I hope that this will both support my lower level students and push my middling to higher students.

2017 1-9 Art and Design Handbook

I know the current year 10’s are working on the 1-9 grades but I just have not have the time to get all my resources updated until now. So here is the first updated resource, my GCSE Art and Design Handbook. I usually give this to the year 9’s who have chosen Art at the end of the summer term along with their summer project work. I also email it to all parents so they know a little about the course and how to support their child (as I find a large number of parents struggle to understand how to support their child in this subject).
