    Right my teacher is going on about " you have to draw on some mounted pieces to get more marks!!! The examiner only has 10 mins to see your art, so this'll give them a chance to see your art straight away!!!"

    Is this true?? Do I HAVE to? It's so annoying, I've hardly done any work on my sketchbook and i feel like i'm neglecting it! I think it's pointless and repeating everything.

    I got an A* in gcse art and didn't even do any of this mounting sheets up stuff, urghh!!! And the thing is everyone in the previous year in the school I go to got like Es and Ds , so does this proof anything??? Instead wasting time doing mounting up stuff, should be doing work in your sketchbook!! Ughh, she's nagging me and saying she's gonna rip stuff from my sketchbook, which i HATE !!!!

    Yes you will need mounted sheets
    for every project by the end i usually have 1 sketchbook, 1 or 2 prep sheets and 1 mounted final piece.
    It makes it easier for the examiner to see and makes it more impressive. Plus it gets you marks for refinement and development because you have taken your experimentation in your book and refined it to make it display worthy

    Every sixth form seems to be operating differently for Art, but a mounted piece allows you to make a strong first impressions to the examiner. My sixth form encouraged us to do produce at least 10 big pieces outside our sketchbook.

    Working outside your sketchbook will show that you are capable of going outside your comfort zone.

    no problem and yeah i think listen to your teacher on this one
    nah dw, it is easier than you think, you have actually done the hard bit, the sketchbook and most ppl lose marks on this bit because they think it isnt as important as sheets so you should be just fine
    goodluck
