I really need help for AQA Graphics. Does anyone know what topics are most likely to revise and please can people share their revision techniques for this specific subject. Thanks.

My teacher thought that plastics and ergonomics would come up. I would recommend getting the revision guide and workbook and working your way through it. It's a bit on the expensive side for a revision guide but it covers everything and it's really good.

Thank you so much for replying. I already have the revision guide but there's just so much in it to revise that I don't have a clue where to start, but thanks for sharing the teachers prediction on plastics and ergonomics-I'll revise these first.

I'm doing it as an Alevel now and finished my GCSEs last year (I got an A at GCSE), so if you'd like any help I'd be more than happy

Okay thanks. How hard is the A level, because I'm still considering what to do for my A levels.

I'm guessing you need to a lot of drawing for Graphics, which I'm awful at-this will probably be my downfall in the exam. Luckily I got a high A in the coursework. Do you have any drawing tips.

Thanks

Honestly the first thing my teacher told us was not to worry about being an 'artist' as the examiners don't care how the drawing looks as long as its measurements are right (if needed) and you can explain your ideas. They'd rather you have 7 average looking drawings than 1 detailed perfect drawing. It's not a hard subject AS LONG AS you keep on top of your coursework because it piles up rather fast hope I helped, good luck

Thanks for the advice. This has given me a lot more confidence. Thank you so much. Good luck with the subject at A level.

Cgp is so horrible it dumbs the points down to autism level and my heart rate increases just thinking about their books

I would agree for certain subjects but for graphics you don't need to low that much detail anyway as it is a more practical based subject.
