Latest Examiners' Report

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. The Eduqas Design and Technology A Level encourages learners to use creativity and imagination when applying iterative design processes to develop and modify designs, and to design and make prototypes that solve real world problems, considering their own and others’ needs, wants, aspirations and values.

The A Level Design and Technology specification is designed to develop learners’ subject knowledge, including how a product can be developed through the stages of prototyping, realisation and commercial manufacture.

Assessment consists of both a designed and made project, and an examination in either fashion and textiles or product design.

We provide a range of digital resources for both learners and educators, including A Level Design and Technology past papers, digital teaching resources and training events. You can access these, along with the A Level Design and Technology specification, using the menu above.
