GCSE Art 2016 AQA Moderator’s Comments

‘The display of the students’ work was exemplary.’

‘The school offers an exciting course where students can experiment with different media in combination with more traditional processes. Work sampled showed students’ responses to be mature, thoughtful and ambitious, in both scale and content. Whilst it was clear that the portfolio themes were common to each student, the variety of responses and individual journeys of exploration undertaken was reflected in the wide range of outcomes seen.

‘Students responded well to the requirements of the specification, employing a wide range of materials, techniques and processes. The use of paint, digital work, printmaking and design-based sculpture were all strong points.’

‘Responses to the Externally Set Task (Exam) starting points showed evidence of how skills and knowledge acquired during the course had prepared students for independent thinking and sustained focused study.’
