Important Information:

Students can either produce:

  1. ‘Completed Product’
  2. A ‘Prototype’
  3. A ‘Mock-up’

If students are unable to finalise option A. ‘The Completed Product’, then they must include ‘supportive evidence’ of how they would have met the brief, if able to. This would mean two pages of explanatory notes for a ‘Prototype’, or three pages if only a ‘mock-up’ is written.
