GCSE Design & Technology Key Ideas and Terms (part 1)

I got a level 9 in GCSE Design and Technology after revising from this resource!

An exceptional-quality fact sheet of clear, easy to understand notes on GCSE D&T Topic 1 Key Ideas and Terms created by a level 9 GCSE Student in accordance with the AQA Design and Technology syllabus. The resource is also suitable for other exam boards such as Edexcel and OCR.

The resource includes some essential content from the GCSE course, laid out in an intelligible and straightforward manner.

I often found the GCSE textbooks to be overwhelming and visually intense, so the resource was created to combat this- it obviously worked!

Content included:

  • Technology in Manufacturing- *definitions, advantages vs disadvantages of processes and JIT *
  • CAD & CAM- explanations of each
  • Product Sustainability- Social Footprint and the 6 REs

Key Terms:
Level 9, Grade 9, AQA, Design and Technology, Textiles, Graphics, Woodwork, Product Design, Systems and Control, Food tech, OCR, Edexcel, GCSE, analyse, learn, mark, 9-1
