Everything that is manufactured, and that includes just about everything you're going to use today, has been designed. A level Design and Technology allows you to explore and understand the world of design and how technology enables the development and production of design ideas. The course will introduce you to the work of designers such as Dyson and will encourage and enable you to research, design, produce and test ideas for marketable products.

As well as creative work you'll be required to produce written assignments and Marked by Teachers has a wide collection of essays which will guide you to a better understanding of what examiners expect.

During your course you'll explore materials such as wood, plastic and composite materials, you'll be introduced to systems and their control and you'llbuild on your presentational skills too. A level design and Technology is an excellent preparation for further study in Fashion, Design and Product Development.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Investigate the work of two different consumer organisations. Compare their roles and the range of products they evaluate

    "Conclusion The differences between the two organisations are that the standard organisations focus on the product functioning properly and it also being of a high standard. The consumer watchdog on the other hand offers a comparison of different products to the consumer in order to show them which products are best. Both of the organisations can determine the customer's choice as to which product they choose to buy. The standards organisations can affect their choice by showing which products are the best by giving the best products a kitemark. The consumer watchdog does the same thing but in a different sort of way, as offering reviews as to which products are the best. The consumer watchdog does not either help or hinder the product manufacturers, but the standards organisations do as they pick out and show the consumers which products are the best and have the highest quality. This helps the manufacturers if they do meet the standards required."
