    I would say make sure you back your visuals with research. From what I remember at Gcse and Alevel, you can have some amazing artwork, but if the artist research and inspiration is not there to back it up, it can really damage your grades.

    I would say get some good primary research as well as secondary. If your topic is movement, why not take a few reference photos of objects/ people moving?

    AND ALSO GOOD LUCK, BUT MOST OF ALL ENJOY WHAT YOU ARE DOING. :]

    Make sure that your sketchbook is consistent and flows and is easy for the examiner to read and understand. Also make sure that you try out a variety of different media and techniques

    I really recommend looking at other people's sketchbooks for inspiration.
    It also depends on your style of art, if that makes sense.
    These are the websites I have used that have really helped me:

    Also, make it very visual. Simple things such as using unusual materials such as newspaper/corregated cardboard, or even just painting a messy wash of watercolour in the background.
    Use black and white - paint the background black and write in white pen?
    Use materials - ribbon, buttons: try to express the flow of movement with these.
    HAVE PAGES OF YOUR OWN EXPERIMENTS.
    Even if it wasn't a success, the examiners love to see your experiments.
    Hope this has helped x
