Art A Level at Nicholas Breakspear Catholic School
Component 1: Art and Design Coursework
Practical work/Personal Study (linking your own
practical work with a broader study of the world of
art, craft and design).
Component 2: Externally Set Assignment
A question paper will be given to you early in the
summer term in the second year of the course,
giving you a choice of questions. This will be taken
as a formal 15 hour examination at the end of the
A2 course, and represents the culmination of your
work so far.
The best foundation for success is a good grade at GCSE
Art: Drawing and Painting or in Art: Graphics. If Art
has been studied at GCSE level a Grade C or above is
required. If you have not studied, either subject but
you have an aptitude for art, or if you are creative or
have well-developed drawing skills, you may have the
basic skills to succeed. You should have a real interest in
creating and understanding art, and the determination
to develop that interest.
