GCSE Expressive Arts is assessed as three units of work; the first unit requires students to develop their ideas in response to the work of set arts practitioners. In the second unit they respond to both practitioners and a set stimulus. In these units they must plan for and produce a cohesive piece of coursework using two linked art forms (students may choose from art, music, drama, creative writing and dance). The final unit of work is externally set and requires students to respond to a community-based commission in which they must work in three linked art forms.
