Like all edexcel centres we received this letter last week - important part quoted below. I am trying to read between the lines. Some questions therefore: (I am pretty sure the art an design advisor for Edexcel reads this forum and seems like Edexcel have closed down posting on their forum!) 1. Is it likely to be harder to get As and A stars in Photography or is it other endorsements that show the disparity, the "gap in achievement" referred to eg Fine Art? 2. I didn't understand the statement about "advancing technology" below. for instance Graphic communication uses new technology in a big way but the statistics show that there are lower numbers of the higher grades in this endorsement. My experience is that moderators want "the drawing" that you'd expect from the more popular entries like fine art and unendorsed as well as all the graphics communication work in graphics.
