Exams


Year 11 GCSE External exam dates: January 2017 – April 2017

Pupils start on their exam preparation with an early release paper containing 10 OCR set tasks.  Each pupil selects one starting point, theme or brief. This gives pupils 10 weeks to prepare for their exam. The work they produce over this period creates 75% of their final mark. Pupils then complete a 10 hour supervised examination (Option B and C: 27th & 28th March, Option D: 28th & 29th May 2017) to develop their ideas into a realisation/outcome (25%).

A2 Fine Art exam dates: 16th – 18th May 2017
