A2 Food Technology Coursework Examples Of Adjectives

A2 Unit 4 (FOOD4)

This unit is the A2 Centre-Assessed Component. This is a design-and-make unit where knowledge of the AS and A2 subject content is applied to the design and manufacture of candidates' own project.

 The Assessment Criteria for A2 Coursework are given below. AQA will provide exemplar material and detailed guidance to illustrate the standard of work required for this coursework unit.

A2 candidates' work will be marked out of a total of 85 marks.

Six criteria are produced for assessment and each criterion has five bands of marks. Each band should be viewed holistically when making assessments; a weakness in one element of a level, for example, can be balanced by strengths in another. Candidates who produce no work for a criterion should be awarded a mark of zero.
