I just wandered is there anyone who get an A star in the subject who can tell me how you got that A star and how much you have to work in order to achieve that. I also find it hard managing time with triple science and art. Any advice. Thanks.

    Rahman put the time in early. For art at GCSE it is about the time you put in.

    Getting an A* in Art is bloody hard, very few people get A*'s. I was the only person in my whole year to get an A* and that's coz I spent sooo much time on art. Obviously, when you start revising for exams, it'll be harder to maintain doing artwork. So if you're in year 10 I would suggest absolutely banging out the coursework (making sure there's quality and quantity) and then for the exam section you don't have to do as much work but make sure you maintain a high quality. I literally did 4 developments for my exam section but because they were creative and high quality I still got an A* on it. Good Luck and remember have fun!!! Art was one of the GCSE's I enjoyed the most

    Art will suck up your time. Do not fall into the trap of aiming for an A* in GCSE art to find you spend so little time on everything else and ruin your overall gcse results sheet. Good luck bruddah

    I got an A* in GCSE art while doing triple science and 9 other subjects.
    Effort and time is crucial. But it's not the only factor.
    You don't need to pour your whole life and energy into art. When you choose a topic or project to work on, be looking out for inspiration everywhere. If you get a good idea, jot it down, google it, and re-draw (in your own style) a good source- do this MASSIVE. After that, all you've got to do is fill space by talking about how it relates to your idea, and analyse why the artist did certain strokes or pursued certain ideas in this piece. THEN, say what you liked and didn't like about this piece. You can develop this idea and keep building until you reach a satisfactory end.
    If you're into the abstract stuff, you don't even have to be precise with your art. EXPLAIN why you chose that medium, why you chose this object to be the centre, why you think this colour palette will accurately reflect the idea you're trying to portray. Just 10 minutes a day can go a looooong way (esp. with coursework).

    Good luck !
