    Oh my God Thank lord! Same here! Except were getting our exam project at the start of February (I''m on Edexcel) and I need to revise for my Feb mocks too D: If only art wasn't so Quantity intensive. My hope is actually starting to fade away.

    Don't worry, we'll get through this - exams will be over by the time we know it. My exam board is AQA for art and I've chosen detail as my starting point. I hope I get a decent grade Try to manage your time effectively so that you can balance between coursework and revising for mocks and i know that, it is much easier said than done

    Well, for AQA, I think you have to do a minimum of two projects, so our teacher set us to do work on African Art and Sea life. What's Edexcel like?

    Edexcel is simillar you have three sketchbook for three different topics, so we have Natural Forms, Distortion and Identity, although (Not Sure if three is the minnimum). And basically you fill those up, along with Classwork of course and thats like 60% of the grade the remaining 40% is the exams.

    Not expecting an A* to be honest but I think if we do decent in the coursework and really good in the exam we should get at least a high B or low A..
