Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

"Very useful, gave a focus to revision and practice for real examination." - R Broadbent, Head of DT, customer
"Very good - easy to use... Answers clear to use with students and questions linked with specification... Matches the AQA specification well." - L Lane, Head of DT, customer
"A very good resource. Questions are clearly written... Matches the specification very well. Covers a wide variety of topics/questions... Provides some ideas as to how the Design questions could be asked/approached. I would recommend that they use it as a mock exam or self study at home - perhaps selecting questions from both papers." - F Meek, DT Teacher, independent reviewer
"I like this resource a lot. It interprets the syllabus well and covers a broad range of topics... Whilst the theme is specific to the topic allocated this year it can still be used for future exam preparations... It clearly has been written for the AQA specification and it matches it well." - S Rule, HoD, independent reviewer
"The materials are very authentic and mirror original AQA past papers. All questions relate to the specification. Excellent support for both teachers and pupils. The sample answers are invaluable" - J Dover, DT teacher, independent reviewer
"Absolutely fantastic! It covers an extremely wide range of question types and subject knowledge.The layout matches that of AQA exam and the mark schemes are very thorough...I am impressed by wide range of questions and the comprehensive coverage of the 2013 context. All questions are clearly written and easy to understand.The questions flow well and clear links are made within each section... The resource will help students to become familiar with the exam format so that there are no surprises and will give them the opportunity to answer questions which are relevant to the 2013 exam. Students will feel that they are truly preparing for the exam and not just practicing a set of random questions or completing past papers,which may be inappropriate." S Wray, DT Teacher, independent reviewer
