A2 Mock week.

As you are on study leave this week for your mocks, you will be completing your mock exam evaluation and mounting your work in your sketchbook to complete your Photography exam time (see sheet below).



You should be attending your double lessons to complete this but if they clash with another exam, come and discuss an appropriate time with me to finish your photography mock exam/final piece.

If you wanted to complete some of this at home, you can do.

Remember-Final deadline for Photo quality 10x8 and your A3 sketchbook with evaluations is 29/1/18.
Good luck completing and if you need any help, email me susanna.smith@asfc.ac.uk
