GCSE Resistant Materials

Resistant Materials develops students confidence when working with materials such as wood, metal and plastic. Resistant Materials is a practical based subject which encourages students to combine designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding of materials in order to make quality products. What makes this course really enjoyable is that you will learn how to do things through practical experience. The coursework project is worth 60% of the course. Once students have decided what they are designing and making, they create a portfolio of research and design work before commencing with the practical. The final term of Y11 is spent preparing for the written examination which is worth 40% of the total marks. Resistant Materials provides excellent preparation for further studies such as A level Product Design, Apprenticeships and ultimately employment such as a career in engineering and construction.
