Design and Technology: Resistant Materials (4560)
This is our current GCSE specification.
For our new specification see:
GCSE Design and Technology: Resistant Materials helps students develop the ability to design and make products with creativity and originality, using a range of materials and techniques.
This specification requires students to develop their knowledge of woods, metals, plastics and composite materials. Other materials may also be used and the use of new technologies is also encouraged.
This course has 60 per cent controlled assessment in order to recognise the importance of practical work within this subject.
We are also developing a Technical Award in Materials Technology for first teaching in 2017. Sign up for updates, or find out more about the changes to GCSEs and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future.
