Does anyone have the preliminary material for the AQA Product design exam on Monday (22nd June)?
I heard that I was supposed to be given this sheet months ago and I still don't have it!! Can someone please scan this in and upload it so me and my classmates can revise? We never knew we was supposed to have one until today and we never knew that it came out a few months ago.

Thanks

No detail or information really given, thanks AQA...
I have no idea what to design if it is open for you to choose a product and a audience (as it has for the last few exams), I'm thinking some sort of docking station for teenagers based on a honeycomb shape but it doesn't sound ideal, considering the time limits and my lack of drawing skills...

Any ideas? What did you get in your coursework?

That's not the sheet you need, I can't scan it but I can take a picture of the actual sheet?

It sounds like you know about the biomimicry aspect, and personally I think they're going to give you a nature themed mood board to incorporate into the design anyway, so you'll not struggle to come up with some ideas

I was supposed to make some kind of lighting product so I made a Car Subwoofer with LED Strips going around it and it comes with an amplifier but this has nothing to do with Biometric design.

What do we need to research and revise for this exam? i know nothing about it and i only did half the questions in my mock exam. Do we need to design something ourselves before the exam?

I would just give a read of a revision guide, make sure you know some of all of the 7 main groups of materials (non and ferrous metals,soft/hardwood, thermosetting and thermoplastics, paper/card) and their properties, standard forms and how to shape them. You should also know a small handful design movements and one in detail as well as the keywords such as technology push etc... IF you know these in detail, and a little common sense then you should get a very good grade (It is usually only about 85/120 for an A*) Its worth reading pages 9-14 in the specification (http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...55-W-SP-14.PDF)

You don't have to design anything for the design but having a product in mind, as well as target market and a basic shape wil save you a hell of a lot of time in the exam. Also adds lots of detail on the design questions, bar-codes on packet and exact dimensions get you a couple extra essential marks.
