Visual arts examiners

Candidates studying visual arts have a choice of two courses.

Option A

Option A is designed for students who wish to concentrate on studio practice in visual arts. Students will produce investigation workbooks to support, inform, develop and refine studio work through sustained contextual, visual and critical investigation.

Option B

Option B is designed for students who wish to concentrate on contextual, visual and critical investigation in visual arts. In their investigation workbooks students will fully explore an integrated range of ideas within a contextual, visual and critical framework, and produce studio work based on their visual and written investigation.

The assessment and role of a visual arts examiner varies for these options. 

Examiners are required to:

  • Moderate investigation workbooks for option A candidates (No travel is required).
  • Visit schools to examine studio work (Option A and B) and investigation workbooks (Option B).
