Layout and presentation are considered important alongside written analysis of images, your own thinking and personal response.

The final exam unit will consist of one unit of work from a chosen starting point. You will be allowed a few weeks to prepare and will then create a final piece whilst working in a Photography room, for ten hours, under exam conditions.
