Section A is usually worth about 25% of the marks but this is the part that you can almost guarantee good marks for if you prepare well!

Start your design work NOW! Do more research if you wish, think of a few ideas and start sketching; LABELLING AND THINKING as you go!

Show your prepared ideas to me and we can discuss how to develop them to increase your chances of high marks in this section.....

Remember, examiners will be seeing about 350 papers, one after the other so make yours stand out with a good idea! Something different will always do well (as long as you stick to the design brief )


Good luck
