    Welcome to :tsr:

    What does Product Design involve, in terms of exams? I've heard about it but that's pretty much it.

    Product Design is one exam that lasts for 2 hours. And it involves you having to draw packaging or a design and answering questions about materials and things like that. There is also coursework for PD and basically this year (don't know if it's same for every year) we had to choose to do a lamp, clock or storage. Then you have to do lots of different research about it and then make your design. It's hard work but it is a good GCSE to do. X

    Russian was pretty easy as my Russian family helped me with revision.

    Latin was alright but I only had 6 months to revise the prose and verse.
