  • 4. A2 level art&design - EXAM YEAR13 UNIT 4 TITLE research+observation+analysis+ideas+development+evaluation EXAM DATE: Please remember that you will need to put all your effort in over the next few weeks, it will be worth it. Make sure you use your lessons and free time efficiently. You can use my room any lunch time or the foyer (on the condition that you tidy up after yourself and respect our equipment-or you will loose that privilege). You are lucky enough to have 3 teachers to feed off and ask advice. Make sure we see your sketchbook often. We can not help you develop and improve if we do not see what you are doing. You need to be honest with us along the way and it will only do you good if you admit you are behind or need help-it doesn’t go away! And neither do we, we will be on at you! Please note that on the week of your exam it is a bank holiday on the Monday (no school) and the GCSE exam on the Tuesday and Wednesday, therefore the art department staff will be unavailable. This means that you need to make sure we are aware of your intentions for the exam and have checked through your sketchbook the week before. N.B If there are specific materials/equipment you need for the exam you will need to give us at least 3 weeks notice to make sure we get it in. Even still this is still not a guarantee and you may need to make alternative arrangements. We will aways endeavor to help you and accommodate your idea.
