GCSE Product Design
Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to develop their designing and practical skills using a wide range of materials and techniques. In Year 10, students will complete 4 mini GCSE projects where the content of the Controlled Assessment is addressed; it will also give students the opportunity to use a range of different materials and processes. These skills are vital as they provide a foundation to the Controlled Assessment project which is completed in Year 11 and worth 60% of their final mark. This reflects the importance of practical work within this subject. Alongside the mini GCSE projects, students will be taught the theory content of the course which will embed their technical knowledge. The theory exam is worth 40% of their final grade.
