Would adding the date of the painting/piece it was made in, give you more marks?

Any tips for the exam this year? I failed the exam in N5 but I still got an A (my folio helped)

I really want to pass this year, but this year I'm doing N5. Any tips from previous people doing this theory exam?

I know 1 tip - Describe the piece like the marker doesn't know what it looks like, pointing the obvious out.

Any advice/help would be muchly appreciated

Always try relative everything back to the mood/atmosphere. For example if you have a painting with a really dull colour palate then you could comment on the muted colour palette and say that it leaves a lonely or sad atmosphere. Another good way to do this is to look at the painting and think, “how does this make me feel, and why” and that’s you got an answer . You can also try and relate all the prompts to the focal point! Eg imagine a dull painting with one small coloured section, that would pop from the rest making it the focal point. Always try pick out a focal point, it will gain you a mark if you can give an explanation why. The good thing about art is that it’s open to interpretation. As long as you can back up your answer with an explanation, gaining marks isn’t too hard. Hope this helped 😊.
