Preparation for the Summer GCSE DT: Graphic Products Exam: The first question in the exam (Section A) will be a design task on the theme given in the ‘Preliminary Materials’ information issued by AQA in March. The rest of the exam (Section B) will have questions relating to general subject theory. The purpose of this presentation is to help you revise the things that you are likely to need to know. 2014 EXAM DATE: WEDNESDAY 11 TH JUNE. Highly recommended additional revision resources on the web: ‘TechnologyStudent.com’ http://www.technologystudent.com/designpro/drawdex.htm http://www.technologystudent.com/designpro/drawdex.htm ‘DesignAndTech.com’: http://www.designandtech.com/graphics/
