For the IGCSE submission, the expectation is that the students complete two parts – Coursework and Final Exam during Year 11.
For Coursework, students are expected to submit 4 Preparation Boards and 1 Final Work. In order to maximize our submissions, we used both sides of our Preparation Boards. Students could choose their own topic and were expected to show the process of developing their idea and final composition.
Topics for the exam component are released in January, giving the students less than 2 months to prepare (while also doing their coursework). Exam requires 2 Preparation Boards (to be done ahead of time) and 1 Final Work (completed during an 8 hour exam).
At YCIS, we submitted work in drawing and painting and the students were 100% successful. All passed!
