Design and Technology: Product Design (3D) (2550)

This is our outgoing A-level specification, available for re-sits only.
For our current specification see:

AS Design and Technology: Product Design (7551)

A-level Design and Technology: Product Design (7552)

A-level Design and Technology: Product Design (3-D Design) helps students take a broad view of design and technology, develop their capacity to design and make products and appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing.

The specification retains much of the content of the previous A-level specification and continues to provide students with the opportunity to design and make a product (or in the case of AS, a number of smaller products) in both years of the course.

The course has 50 per cent coursework in order to recognise the importance of practical work within this subject.
