Why choose this specification?

A specification with you and your students in mind

  • Clear, simple structure to help your students revise for and relate the work done for Controlled Assessment to the exam.
  • A practical approach that encourages your students to design and make products with creativity and originality in a variety of practical activities, using a range of materials and techniques. Packaging, labelling and instructions are also encouraged as part of the complete design proposal, while marketing tools, such as advertising and points of sale, can be used to supplement the making experience and help create products which can be evaluated for their commercial viability.
  • Single tiered assessment covering grades A*–G to cater for students of all abilities.
  • Controlled Assessment Adviser (previously called Coursework Adviser) to provide you with guidance on the Controlled Assessment component.
