AQA GCSE exam themes

Preparing for the AQA GCSE exams feels like a bit of a marathon. With seven questions to resource, coming up with artists and ideas can really test your creative thinking! Still, I’ve ploughed on through and finished all seven themes and I’m pretty pleased with the results.

Each mind-map is an A3 interactive PDF – meaning you can click on the artists names and images to link to relevant websites, when looking on a computer. They also make inspiring posters to have up in the classroom providing subtle inspiration to students who might be inclined to think quite narrowly about the themes.

Here they are:

They are available singly or as a bundle from my Teachers Pay Teachers shop, just click here.  Or the bundle of seven PDF files is available for £5 by clicking here:


Hopefully these will provide some inspiration and save a bit of work too!

Other resources which might be useful for the exam can be found at the links below:

And the AQA GCSE theme mind-maps from 2017 are downloadable here – for free.
