Year11 (and certain Year 10 students) - March 29 and 30
Year 12 - April 1 - mock exam then April 8th
Year 13 - April 5,6 and 7.
Some general advice - prepare early, generate photographs, prepare backgrounds, draw out before the exam days.  Make sure your studies from observation, artist connections and planning are complete. Annotate your work to explain what you are trying to do. Be ambitious.
