The course is assessed with a two hour exam and controlled assessment each worth 50%
|Principals of Design and Technology (01)||100||2 hours||50%|
|Iterative Design Challenge (02/03)||100||Approx. 40 hours||50%|
Students successfully completing the course may continue on to A level design and technology. They may also go on to study a degree in design.
