    Unless it's specified in the task description it would be up to whoever is marking so just ask the teacher or whoever is doing that.

    Designing Skills Candidates should be taught:
    to understand the basic design principles of line, form and colour and
    their application in designing;

    Candidates should: Possible learning experiences
    have an awareness of new graphic
    and modelling materials (treated
    card for ink-jet printing, smart
    materials, machining foams);
    acquire knowledge and skills to
    be able to use a range of graphic
    media including: pencils, coloured
    pencils, airbrush, inks, fine liner
    pens, felt marker pens, technical
    pens, paints and transfer letters;
    Use correct media and make
    judgements about their use.
    use drawing equipment, set
    squares, drawing boards,
    compasses and dividers, rulers,
    protractors, french curves, flexicurves;
    have an awareness of the role of
    support equipment i.e.
    photocopier, light box;
    use computer software for
    CAD/CAM and Desk Top
    Publishing (DTP);
    Use correct equipment and make
    judgements about their use.

    recognise that graphic











    I'm just totally stuck, I did a few other pages using colour, like my logo developments+ final box design, ( I have two boxes), and compartments, so I have shown that I can colour and **** like that, I did an orthographic of my box with rendering too so I guess that shows extra skill.
    It confuses me to no end as my graphics teacher said in my school report that my use of software gives my work a more professional feel but I can't really ask her at this stage because it should have been done a while ago.

    All the teachers know that students are lazy so doubt yours would care that you put it off. If you're really worried, just say that you've made it using software and wanted to know if that's okay or should you remake it on paper. Then they'll assume you've made it ages ago and just wanted to confirm.

    What they've written there indicates that they'd like to see traditional methods used, I'd just ask the tutor.
