  1. What is the course like? Is it harder to obtain an A* here than if you did GCSE Art & Design? What are the pro's and con's of doing GCSE textiles? Have you enjoyed the two years doing GCSE textiles?

  2. Oooh i did GCSE textiles takes me back a bit. It was very heavily coursework oreinted, and i think involved a majr project. If you're good enough at sewing (etc) and learn the basics for the exam it should be easy to pull off an A/A*. That ai i only got a D so i'm the wromg person to ask (that said my final project as fine...i just buggered up on the exam). No idea if that helps...this was 5/6 years ago!
  3. Hey,

    I don't know what exam board you're doing Textiles with but like the previous poster says, it is very heavilty coursework oreientated. But if you're willing to spend a lot of lunchtime perfecting your coursework and your teacher is willing to do that, the end result is really rewarding. The exams aren't so straightforward and I don't know what it's like at your school but for DT teachers place so much less emphasis on the exams because they're 'only' 40% but if you like that kind of thing (making etc) then you'll really enjoy it.

    I thought there was much more skill involved, having never touched a sewing machine before in my life but you do learn lots and you can take the course even if you're starting from scatch. I presume by Art and Design you mean Art? The course that's 100% coursework right? From that, my friends all said that it was really really tiring but kinda easy to get a good grade in it because you have so much control. That being said, they said you must LIKE art to enjoy it, because you're going to spend a LOT of time taking it. I would not advice you to take both Textiles AND Art, unless you're really into that kind of stuff...

    I get my GCSE results in 2 days anyway for Textiles and I thought the exam went hideously bad but my coursework was an A* so you're free to PM me if you're still wondering after Thursday.

    BTW I did OCR Textiles

Ей попалось описание нитрата мочевины, в десять раз более мощной взрывчатки, чем динамит. Инструкция по ее изготовлению была проста, как рецепт приготовления жженого сахара.
