INTRODUCTION . . . . . . . .

Your teachers in the Design & Technology Department at Auchinleck Academy have put together this presentation in an attempt to ensure you stand the best chance of reaching your full potential in the Graphic Communication exam this summer.

The presentation is full of tips regards how to study for the Graphics exam plus plenty of useful advice which may also come in handy for your other subjects.

You will really do yourself a lot of good if you take on board the advice offered here and, most importantly, put it into practice.

Good Luck.

GENERAL STUDY HINTS

Study little and often. 20-30 minute blocks repeated regularly over a lot of weeks are much more successful than a couple of days solid study immediately before the exam. A proven fact !

Past Papers. These are an excellent way of working out if you have the right level of understanding and familiarising yourself with the layout of the questions and the structure of the paper.

A good study environment. Get rid of clutter and distractions from the place where you are going to do your studying.

SUCCESS

Study Timetable. Work out a realistic amount that you will be able to devote to your studies, write up a plan and stick to it with determination. Only break the plan if completely unavoidable.

Remember to relax. You will actually get more useful revision done if you make sure you switch off from it in between times. Make time for your usual pastimes.

Use your course notes. Make sure you have all of the notes that you used in class. Do not leave any folders in class which could be used for revision.

slide5

STUDY HINTS FOR GRAPHICS

Get the right equipment. To study properly and fully, you will need a basic set of drawing instruments. These should be relatively easy to get. If you have any difficulty, speak to your teacher.

What are the bankers ? There will be certain topics which are more likely to come up than others. You will get a good impression of which from looking at as many past papers as you can. Your teacher will give you some, others are available commercially.

When and where. Make absolutely certain you know which two exams you are sitting – F/G or G/C. The exam will be held in the Graphics rooms on Thursday 20 May. You will need to confirm with your teacher what time your exam is. It might NOT be as per the published list. ASK !

SUCCESS

Drawing Speed. You must get your drawing speed right up in order to get through all of the drawing questions. The ONLY way to do this is to draw, draw, draw. Even if you have done a drawing before, you will get benefit from doing it again.

Revision Booklets. You were given revision booklets near the end of the course. Everything which could come up in the exam is in these booklets. If you get familiar with them, you will be well prepared.

slide6

KNOWLEDGE & INTERPRETATION – what to expect

You will be tested on your Knowledge & Interpretation in the Graphics exam by a series of questions which are a mixture of written and graphic.

Typically, you will be given a symbol and asked what it represents. You may be shown a graph and asked to take some information from it. You may be shown an exploded view of a complicated assembly and asked some questions which would seek to find out if you could follow how the item is assembled.

Here are some of the topics which may be tested in the Knowledge & Interpretation section ;

Computer hardware / software

Computer Generated 3D Models

Advantages / disadvantages of CAD

Computer Processes

Colour Theory

Graphs & Charts

Questions on Line Types

Signs & Symbols

slide7

DRAWING ABILITIES – what to expect

You will be tested on your Drawing Ability in the Graphics exam by a series of questions which require you to draw the answer.

Typically, you will be given a partially completed drawing in a specific drawing style. You will then have to complete the drawing/s as per the question.

Here are some of the topics which may be tested in the Drawing Abilities section ;

Cones

Isometrics with circles / curves

Developments

Oblique Views

True Shapes

Planometrics

Sectional Views

Orthographics

Assemblies

One Point Perspective

Exploded Views

Two Point Perspective

Square Pyramids

slide8

EXAM TECHNIQUE

Start with your banker. By the time you go into the exam you will know which question/s you are best at and most confident with. This is the question you should tackle first. Do not automatically do question 1 first.

Read the question ! Sounds obvious but so many people simply scan the question without fully understanding what is being asked. TIP – read every question, figure out what is being asked then read it again to check your initial thoughts were right.

KI first ? Some people prefer to do all of the Knowledge & Interpretation questions first so they know how much time they have to devote to the drawing questions. What do you think ?

SUCCESS

Manage your time. You must make sure that you have a go at every question. Avoid getting bogged down and spending too much time on any single question. Make sure you spend at least 20 minutes on every question.

Check your answers. If you are lucky enough to finish with extra time, use it to the full. Go back over and read every question again and see if you have fully answered every question. Scrape every last mark.

USEFUL PRESENTATIONS

Behind every yellow box on this page is a presentation which you should watch. They will help you in a couple of ways.

They could be used to confirm that your understanding of a topic is correct.

They could also be used to guide you in the topics which you found difficult in class the first time round. They are designed as self help. Go through them slowly and if you still don’t get it, go back to your teacher as soon as possible.
