Year 11 Design Technology

Summer Examinations

Pearson Edexcel


Design Technology - Component 1 (Core and Timbers)

All students have the option to purchase a revision guide, which will aid them in the creation of revision resources. Students are encouraged to focus on individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. This means creating revision resources such as mind maps and flash cards.

Students are encouraged to focus on the two main topics - Core (general knowledge of Design and Technology) and Timbers. It would be advisable for students to use each revision session for a different topic and to firstly complete the relevant end of chapter review exercise (strengths and challenges) from their text book.

This will allow them to identify areas more clearly for further work which they can then use the revision guide and suggested websites to revise.

In addition, students are set exam style question through “Show My Homework”. Students are given page numbers of their text book that might be helpful for them alongside each task

Revision guides

All students have access to a revision resource from the Design Technology department and via the school’s shared area. If your child has lost their PDF version then please see a member of the department staff.

In addition, you can also purchase a revision guide via Wisepay.
