AS/A2 Levels: Visual Media (Photography) at Hind Leys College (Iveshead School)
This is designed to be a 2 year A Level course. Visual Media offers the opportunity to explore the variety of contexts in which digital images are used.
It is useful if students who are interested in studying A Level Visual Media have studied Art, Media, or Graphics at GCSE level but this is not essential. Good organisation and the ability to work independently are important for this A Level.
Component 1: Personal Investigation - 60% of qualification. Students propose an area of study to base their personal investigation project on. They start in the summer term of year 12 and continue with this practical project until January of year 13. Component 2: Externally Set Assignment - 40% of qualification. In February of year 13 students receive an exam paper with a selection of starting points for photography projects. They select one to base their work on and this project and conclude it with a 15 hour practical exam where they produce their final outcome.
