It's definitely very coursework heavy - it's a lot of work if you want the top grades.
But it's fun coursework - we were allowed to make whatever we wanted AQA , so most people did slightly entertaining stuff. You have to generally have a rough idea of how a sewing machine works - the more techniques you put into the coursework the more chance you have of getting a better mark. The folderwork is not so fun, but it's not difficult either, just time-consuming. As someone else said, if you don't mind giving up free time to do it you'd probably do well.

The actual exam is okay - there's a lot to learn and the revision is boring and rather pointless, but provided you learn everything it's relatively easy to do well. Although I haven't got my result yet, so saying that Pros - fun lessons, rewarding, sense of accomplishment, fun gcse in general. Cons - a lot of work, boring theory. If it helps, I really enjoyed it, even though the two weeks before the deadline was flipping stressful and I spent my whole half term cutting and sticking.

At my school we could pick our own theme which is good becuase i dont think alot of schools do that. I'd suggest making something original rather than something that everyone makes like a prom dress or something like that. Also on your final production have lots of decoration and different techniques or components, thats what gets you marks Personally I think textiles is a hell of alot easrier than art, but thats just my opinion.

Pros - Not particualarly difficult, you can do really well if you have common sense and learn to use a sewing machine. Fun lesson, and in my case there was quite alot of freedom. Cons - Time consuming but if you like textiles you wont be bothered about that, i wasnt. I enjoyed the coursework very much so, however it meant spending some lunchtimes in the Tech block towards the completion of my coursework. The coursework could be chosen by me as long as it was approved by my teacher, I made a large lion stuffed toy as I wanted to do something fun. The exam was fairly easy which surprised me as I found the theory learnt in lesson to be extensive and difficult to remember.
