Gcse Graphics Coursework 2013

GRAPHICS (OCR J303) involves designing and making, but you will be working with 'lighter' materials, such as paper, card, and thinner plastic sheet. You are likely to be based more in the Design Rooms, although you will still use the workshop.

Unit A533: Making Quality Products This is a folder/practical exercise during year 11 undertaken in school under 'controlled assessment'. It is worth 30% of the final examination mark.

Unit A535: Sustainability and Technical Aspects of Designing and Making * Change from 2013
This unit focuses on the knowledge, skills and understanding underpinning the design and manufacture of products made from graphic materials. This is worth 40% of the total GCSE marks and is examined by a 1 hour 30 mins written paper.
Section A consists of 15 short answer questions and one question which may involve sketching, annotation, short sentences and extended writing. This section will focus on sustainability, product analysis and design. Section B consists of three questions which may involve sketching, annotation, short sentences and extended writing. This section will focus on the technical aspects of working with equipment and the design of products. This unit is externally assessed.

Aims

The core aims of all specifications are:

to encourage candidates to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding, in order to design and make quality products;

to promote design and technology capability in candidates through activities which involve a range of contexts, materials and processes, and to lead to practical results;

to give opportunities to develop practical abilities and the confidence to design, make and modify products for identified purposes, selecting and using resources effectively;

to encourage the development of candidates’ critical and aesthetic abilities, enabling them to evaluate design and technology activity, including their own, in the context of an identified need;

to encourage candidates to consider the effects and implications of technological activity;

to encourage candidates to consider the effects and implications of technological activity;

to provide for activities which cross subject boundaries and give candidates opportunities to work both individually and as a member of a team.
