As dd3 says it is and thinks she wants to do it. Will check with actual school next week but hust wondered if any MNs had any experience of it.

It's more likely to be BTEC Level 2/First award in Creative Digital Mefia, which is a GCSE equivalent or an NCFE.

Hmm. Her school don't do any BTECS. Think she's got something wrong somewhere. Thank you!

My dcs school have mentioned that from next year art will be split into 'textiles, ceramics etc...' and 'graphics, photography etc...' the latter being digital.

It’s probably OCR’s Cambridge Technical in Digital Media. It’s not a GCSE qualification but it’s not a BTEC either. It is the vocational offering of the old ICT GCSE that was scrapped in favour of CS.

I am so sorry OP, I didn’t realise you were in Northern Ireland so didn’t think it was that! Glad you got your answer.
