    seriously something messed up with AQA's moderators last year because my only lost like 3 marks but only got an A!!!!! Im sorry but that is ridiculous...
    im getting scared about my AS art now..i worked so hard but im worried that it wasnt enough :confused:

    its the same with me, i think i lose too many marks on the written work

    im hoping that my written work was ok, our teacher gave us a really great formula for writing critical studies so it was really detailed-it was called the rod taylor formula or something anyone else ever heard of it?

    i think to get an a* you have to do really random, off the wall things! i got an a* and i think its cos my stuff was different. when our topic was war and conflict, everyone else did cliched pictures of barbed wire, helmets and the like. i did an aerial view of the allied bombing of dresden overlayed on a map of germany and pinnned it up on a board as if it was a military plan.
    the moderator must have thought finally, a piece that doesn't involve barbed wire!

    it helps to do loads of prepwork, and explain EVERYTHING you do!

    I wouldn't bother, if I were you. The moderation is completely arbitrary.
