Component 2: Externally Set Task - The early release paper will be issued on 2 January each year and will provide learners with five themes, each with a range of written and visual starting points and stimuli. Part of the syllabus will be concerned with the critical aspect of the subject. This means looking at other art work and appreciating it. A visit to gallery is intended to provide enrichment and support for this process. The art course during Year 10 and Year 11 offer learners the chance to master many new skills and techniques. Learners will be encouraged and expected to take the fullest advantage of the Art Department's facilities and to explore the potential of the wide range of media at their disposal. Exploration and experiment, in fact, will be the mainspring of the course and originality and skill will be the standard by which pupils' work will be measured. Learners will be given the opportunity to formulate and develop ideas, to choose the appropriate media and to produce a well finished piece of work. Assessment The requirements of the Art and Design syllabus are that each candidate must develop a portfolio of work, which incorporates both a controlled assessment portfolio and a timed

9 externally set task. This means that learners will have to work hard throughout the whole course to do well in the continuous assessments and to progress to a high standard to do well in the final examination. The Component 1- Coursework Portfolio, is worth 60% of the total and Component 2 - Set Task is valued at the remaining 40%. Both components are internally assessed and externally moderated by.
