The Production Process

The Production Process

Return to Advanced Production


Whilst you are making your project you should be making a record of what you are learning. Whether you are working on a moving image project a web project or aa audio project you will need to be keeping a record about any problems you find learnng the relevant software, any criticisms of the software.

You must keep a record of the different tools and features of the software by making print-screens as you go along. The project is word counted so it is advisable to use images to illustrate what you have learned. This can save words and be far more exaplanatory. I suggest to my students that they keep a table open in a Word document with two columns. In one column  insert the printscreens as you r project develops  and in the other column  provide some annotations.

This method allows you to make a brief summary of what you have learned about the software and frees up word count for areas such as the industrial context of your project and also creates space to allow for more effective feedback when researching the responses of your target audience.

UCAS Tariff Points Table

Preface

If you are browsing for course and checking out the minimum required grades you might find it useful to open another tab or version of your browser to have these these tables as a handy reference.


Introduction

Please note these tables are relevant to the older specification which is being phased out. The new A level specification has the A* category which is new and will only apply at the A2 level. These will not become available until 2009-10.

Each A level carries a maximum of 120 points. A typical AS level course of three full A levels plus one AS level will carry a maximum of 420 points.

The total number of UCAS points available for each full A level therefore = 120


In the table below there are some combinations which people in the real world actually get.

A key point to note about the table below is that not all points combinations are regarded in the same way by the institutions you are applying to.

A2 grades are better regarded by institutions because they are obviously harder to get. Many institutions ask for a certain number of points to be gained at the A2 level because of this.

As a result of this you may well be better off by putting more work into gaining a good A2 grade rather than trying to boost the points by pushing an AS level up a single grade from a B to an A.

This ninety points is better than the combination in purple as A2 points are more difficult to get.
