Art and Design AS Level at Handsworth Wood Girls' Academy
Students will generate practical work, ideas and research from primary and contextual sources. You will experiment with media and processes, develop and refine your ideas then present your outcomes. The AS course takes one year to complete and consists of a coursework based unit and an external assessment unit set by Edexcel.
AS Unit 1: Art and Design Coursework
AS Unit 2: Art and Design Externally Assessed Assignment
A minimum grade of B at GCSE or its equivalent is required to study the course.
Formative assessment during the course will occur informally in class, through your coursework and through assessed tasks.
Summative assessment will be through:
1. The production of Coursework during the course (worth 60% of AS). Internally assessed, a sample will be moderated by Edexcel.
2. An external assignment and controlled 8-hour exam from Edexcel (worth 40% of AS). Internally assessed, a sample will be moderated by Edexcel.
The Advanced Subsidiary GCE (AS) course leads to Advanced GCE (A-Level / A2) which would require a further one year’s study.
