Art, Craft & Design A Level at WQE
In addition to the standard College entry requirements (see below), this course normally requires a student to have achieved Grade 4 or above in a GCSE Art and Design course or Grade 4 in GCSE Design and Technology (Graphic Products or Resistant Materials).
In order to fully support students who have gained a Grade 4 in GCSE in an Art and Design or Design Technology subject, or those who have not had the opportunity to study these subjects at GCSE, we will ask you to do a short drawing task as part of the enrolment procedure. This is to ensure you can successfully meet the rigours of the course. It would also be helpful for students to bring with them examples of their creative work on enrolment day.
All components are assessed on the evidence in your Portfolio and sketch books. The marks you get for each component are added together to give your final grade for the A-level.
The usual progression route for Art and Design students is to a Foundation course in Art and Design, and from there to a degree course. Each year a number of students successfully gain direct entry onto a degree of their choice.
