Design and Technology: Electronic Products (4540)
This is our current GCSE specification.
For our new specification see:
GCSE Design and Technology: Electronic Products (4540) helps students to design and make quality electronic products with creativity, originality and flair using a wide range of electronic components with appropriate materials to package the electronic circuit. The packaging of the electronic circuit can include individually designed cases made from a range of resistant materials, textiles, card or recycled materials. Alternatively, candidates can purchase a commercially made case and modify the case to meet their project needs.
This two-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to consider sustainability and environmental impact on their designing. It also provides the candidate with the opportunity to design and make an electronic product using new technologies and modern electronic devices.
This course has 60 per cent controlled assessment.
