So I got a B for my coursework and a C for my exam at AS and was wondering if anyone had any tips to pick up some extra marks for ALEVEL.
We get to chose our own topic for coursework but should it be specific? I chose cubism for my contextual study so ideally i will try to link that in somewhere with Picasso, Cezanne and Juan Gris but im not great at writing things so just some pointers on analysing/ writing personal responses i suppose???

I had a similar problem at AS came out with a B overall but knew I had to get an A at Alevel. Anyway what I basically did was spent a huge amount of time on art much more than any other subject, but it turned out well.
So I made sure I did LOADS of prep work for all the final and coursework pieces, so copies of other artists, studies for final pieces and written pieces and I always made sure I was ahead so I could fit more in. The fact I got a chance to do loads of experimenting before final pieces meant they were much better than if I hadn't done the work first, so definitely worth the effort. Oh and they generally like you trying out weird and wonderful things, so even if you're not sure about it, give it a go anyway, and you may find something you love doing in the process.
