AS and A-level Art and Design

  • Teaching from: September 2015
  • Exams from: June 2016 (AS), June 2017 (A-level)
  • Specification code: 7241 - 7246, 7201 - 7206
  • QAN code: AS: 601/4706/4; A: 601/4456/7

These specifications directly support progression to further and higher education, and provide students with a rich platform to inspire a lifelong interest in art and design.

We've kept the flexibility of our previous specification, so students can focus on an area of personal interest. It also means that AS and A-levels are co-teachable - enabling progression from AS to the full A-level.

We offer each school and college an allocated subject adviser for tailored one-to-one advice on course planning and delivery, and specification requirements.
