The content is divided into two parts: Coursework and Controlled Test.
1. Coursework Portfolio (60%)
A portfolio of works exploring a range of creative approaches, culminating in a selection of finished works, supported by sketchbooks. Candidates will be encouraged to assess their own performance, effort, attainment, etc. on completion of each aspect of their portfolio.
2. Controlled Test (40%)
A number of themes and tasks will be presented as starting points for a sustained focus study culminating in a ten-hour test. Typically, there will be approximately 6 weeks preparation time to enable this.
