Example answers

This specification is designed to encourage candidates to:

  • develop a broad view of design and technology
  • develop their capacity to design and make products
  • appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing.

There are two units for each of AS and A2, with an examination and a coursework unit at both levels. Candidates taking the A2 qualification must take all four units. The examination is be synoptic.

AS Outline

At AS, candidates study nutrition and design and making food products. Knowledge of food science and the wide range of materials and components used in the making of food products are developed. Candidates are given the opportunity to develop and solve a problem relating to food design and making in the coursework, whilst the examination tests knowledge, understanding and design skills. They gain an understanding of industrial and commercial practices within the area of Food Technology:

  • Unit 1 (FOOD1) Materials, Components and Application
  • Unit 2 (FOOD2) Learning Through Designing and Making.

A2 Outline

At A2, candidates build further upon the knowledge and practical skills gained at AS level. Candidates continue to develop design work, alongside an understanding of food science, processes and commercial food manufacture (the latter being focused upon in much more detail than at AS, where it is not a requirement of the coursework):

  • Unit 3 (FOOD3) Design and Manufacture
  • Unit 4 (FOOD4) Design and Making Practice
