2012 Practice Exam Notes

It is understood that Year 12 VCAD students have had numerous distractions and obstacles which has made it difficult to study adequately for the practice examination; none the less, the results were quite disappointing.

The average for the class was 59%.

Students must understand how important the final examination is to not only their ENTER score, but the selection process for Tertiary Courses. A high result for each folio may be meaningless if you cannot exhibit consistent results in the examination. With this in mind, students are encouraged to actively seek and study the course material and refine their drawing skills (both technical and freehand).
.
To begin improving results, students need to focus on the raw basics. Simple things such as reading the question carefully and being aware of time constraints will go a long way. Furthermore, students at this level should never confuse such things as elements, principles, methods and media. This is basic theory taught in Year 7 and should be naturally understood by now.
.
In the remaining classes we have left in Term Four, students will be given a number of practice questions to attempt both in class and at home. Based on recent results, we need to build our self-confidence and awareness – this combined with some hard work will see us achieve much better results in November.

More information about the practice exam will be revealed in our first class in Term Four.
