Keys to a successful Portfolio Submission (60% of your GCSE Photography Grade)

Your BEST work.  Make sure your sketchbook only contains the your best work. All pages that are presented for Assessment must be to your best possible standard.

Your project flows. Annotations explain your intentions and how you will develop your idea. You must link your ideas from Parallel Worlds Experiments, Parallel Worlds Final Piece and Your fashion Project. 

Vary the size and selection of your images. Too many small images that you cannot see are irrelevant. YOUR BEST images should be larger. DO NOT add lots of screen shots that are too small and show little change from the previous screen shot. Choose the most relevant from your process and annotate clearly.

Demonstrate your UNDERSTANDING and not Just your KNOWLEDGE. Hears a simple example:. Knowledge, in effect, is the accumulation of facts, myths, trivia and beliefs. We may all know that placing a raw egg into boiling water will cook the egg, but we don't necessarily understand the process that affects the proteins in the egg, however a specialist who studies.the process will not only learn how, but understand why. In your sketchbook make sure you annotate to show you know how but more imporatntly understand why what you have completed will develop your idea.
