Course Assessment (6 SCQF credit points)

The course assessment has two components:

  • a question paper (70 marks)
  • an assignment (70 marks).

The question paper will assess your skills, knowledge and visual literacy through the graphics techniques and practice you have acquired. The question paper will be set and marked by SQA.

The assignment will assess how you draw on, extend and apply the skills and knowledge developed and acquired during the course. You will be asked to produce a piece of graphical work in response to a brief.

Your work will be assessed by your teacher on an ongoing basis throughout the course. You must pass all three units and the course assessment to gain the course qualification.

The course assessment is graded A-D. Your grade will depend on the total mark for all the units in your course.
