Shortlist

Course Overview
The AS (Advanced Subsidiary) can be taken as a discrete one year qualification or as the first half of a full two year A Level. These courses are challenging, rewarding and enjoyable and offer a valuable experience for you if you have a keen interest and aptitude in any of the subject areas.

The course enables you to develop skills through a variety of activities and/or specialisms which could include drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, digital arts, 3D, and textiles. You will use a wide range of media, techniques and approaches to produce a portfolio of art, craft and design work.

There will be opportunities to work with practising artists, designers and craftspeople. You will participate in cultural and contextual activities and educational visits to support your studies.
At AS level there is one non exam assessment unit – Personal Creative Enquiry. This is an extended, exploratory project/portfolio based on themes and subject matter which are personal and meaningful to you. Unit 1 is internally assessed and externally moderated.

At A2 level there are two non-exam assessment units.
Unit 2 – Personal Investigation, a major in-depth critical, practical and theoretical investigative project/portfolio and an extended written element of 1000 words minimum.
Unit 3 – Externally Set Assignment set by the awarding body.

Both Unit 2 and 3 are internally assessed and externally moderated.
5 GCSEs at grade C/4 or above including grade B/6 in an Art & Design related subject.

Should an A level applicant have or be predicted a grade D/3 in either GCSE Maths or English (and at least a grade C/4 in the other subject) then your application will be considered.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
You may wish to progress onto a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Pre Degree level or you can continue your studies at university or gain employment in the Creative Industries.
Some courses may require equipment and/or uniforms to be purchased. Please see attached equipment list for further information.
