AFL Task

This task will develop your ability to understand and apply the OCR mark scheme. This activity counts towards your research and planning marks, and will enable you to make improvements to your own work, so it is important that you complete it to the best of your ability.

Download the booklet (see post above) and complete all tasks either by typing directly onto the document or by printing off and completing it using a biro.

Read the grade descriptors and mark each example using your best judgement. Give reasons for your marks.

The example magazines can be found here.

This work should take one lesson.

Magazine tips

  • Even numbers on the left
  • Odd numbers on the right
  • Measure a real barcode with a ruler and apply those dimensions to your blog
  • Columns need to be the same width
  • Margins need to be the same width too
  • Your double page spread needs a heading - an artist name is not enough
  • Credit the writer and photographer (use different names)
  • Magazine is music only
  • 'Borrow' from other magazines
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar are very important
  • Think of your pages as grids
  • Print out your work and check the size of the text
