A Level Product Design Exam Prep Questions

A Level Product Design Exam Prep Questions

(1)
This resource pack consists of 24 weeks (2 terms) worth of mock exam questions, structured around the specification content of EDUQAS A Level Product Design, as well as model answers in the PowerPoints, written using the mark schemes and examiners reports. The questions can be given as standalone homework or used as extension tasks. The questions are mixed, (high and low mark questions), and gathered from past papers. I would recommend you give the students one question a week to complete for homework and then review it as group using these PowerPoints. Can also be used to cover the specification content from other A Level exam boards, as the content required is very similar.
