    I'm not the best at art in the world (Who knows why I picked graphics) but i was wondering if anyone had any tips for getting a good mark on the paper.
    Thanks a bunch

    Hey, I'm taking graphics too! The preliminary material given to us for 30-or so marks on the first bit of the paper are about animal related products I think, so I'd just look over some animals (weird af) the day before. As for everything else, look over key designers (Margret Calvert & Jock Kinneir, Hary Beck and Wally Ollins) and production methods and all that stuff.

    REMEMBER: An examiner won't really care if you can draw or not, just if you can give some detailed drawings, neatly-ish drawn and annotated and coloured IF ASKED (lost 3 marks on this last year because i was bored and wanted to waste time by colouring :rolleyes:)

    Overall, just revise and enjoy it!

    PS: what did you get in your coursework if you don't mind me asking
