AQA GCSE Design and Technology (new specification 2017) practice exam paper section A
Research suggests that one of the best ways for students to revise for an exam is to engage in past paper practice, the more the better (Roediger et al., 2005). However, with the release of new specifications for exams comes the problem that past papers just don't exist, therefore giving students the opportunity to practice the exam and build confidence going into the exam is limited.

This practice exam paper section A is designed to cover the content from the core technical principles of the AQA GCSE Design and Technology new specification and give students practice in answering questions in exactly the same format that they will face in their real exam. There are multiple choice questions followed by some short response questions and is out of 20 marks.

This resource includes a markscheme written in the AQA style and a cover sheet in the same style as the AQA exam adding authenticity to the student experience.

This question paper is also available cheaper in the whole exam resource which covers sections A, B and C.

The author of this resource is a TES recommended author, and has been published by Harper Collins (CIS Design and Technology Student book and Teacher guide)
