OCR Level 1/2 Cambridge National in Creative iMedia (Games Design)

Our Cambridge National Award in Creative iMedia is being developed for home educated students interested in Games Design.

Please note that this course is in development and we are currently working with a small number of students prior to September 2022 to ensure all resources are approved by OCR and in line with the new iMedia Specification for teaching from 2022 (J834).

You must complete previous lessons before moving on. Please make sure that you mark the introduction lessons as “lesson completed” to unlock the Unit 1 Lessons.

Class sizes for Creative iMedia are restricted to a maximum of 15 students. Course costs include coursework authentication & marking – exam fees & registration are not included. Exam regiatration is through Tutors and Exams Centres.

The National Award in Creative iMedia is a GCSE equivalent qualification that involves the completion of three assessed units:

Unit 1 : Creative iMedia in the media industry (exam based)

Unit 2: Visual identity and digital graphics (coursework based)

Unit 3: Digital games (coursework based)
