What To Take Note Of For The Practical Aspects For Your SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual Paper 2?

You would have noticed that the SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual Paper 2 holds a high mark allocation (50 marks) and it is entirely subjective unlike your Paper 1.

Although you will know the topics beforehand, here are 3 key points to remember when you're preparing for this paper.

Point 1: Identify the theme and main focus of the questions 

Go through the 6 questions and see which theme it falls under (landscape, figures, fantasy, animals, objects and surroundings etc) and the specific items that are mentioned in the question.

For example: Di suatu sudut meja, kelihatan dendan jelas beberapa biji ketupat, bersama rendang dan sate. Gambarkan suasana hidangan ini dari jarak dekat dengan memberi penekanan kepada jalinan, bentuk, cahaya dan bayang.

  1. Keywords: Meja (angle setting on a table) , beberapa biji ketupat, rendang dan sate (food item must be included)
  2. Techniques/Types of drawing elements: Jalinan (Lines), bentuk (Shapes), cahaya (Lighting), bayang (Shadow)

Point 2: List down the drawing techniques and materials that you have to use 

After that, you should decide how to create the artwork (watercolour/ oil painting/colour pencils) and how to compose the overall presentation of the final image for all the objects to be in perfect harmony. That being said, you are strongly encouraged to create a checklist of all the things you need to bring for the actual paper.

You can refer to this list as an example:

  • Question Paper  and IC
  • Cloth
  • Complete Buncho watercolours
  • Pencil colours
  • Sharpener
  • Palette
  • Cup for water
  • Crayons
  • Stationaries
  • Newspapers

Point 3: Ensure good planning and time management 

It is super important to note that you have 3 hours to complete the drawing on the actual exam. So make sure you practice your chosen question multiple times during that whole week, in terms of sketching, colouring and positioning of the drawing. Always remember to allocate your time wisely so that you have sufficient time to make your final work presentable and neat. 

Important note: Do not attempt to switch your question at the very last minute to avoid unnecessary panic and unforeseen circumstances.

How To Score Well For Each Component For Your SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual Papers?

You're at the final lap of your SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual exam preparation. Now that you have gained some understanding of the exam format and basic information for each paper, all that's left is a few steps to score that A+ for this subject!

a) Master the marking scheme 

While it's pretty straightforward for Paper 1 (objective questions), Paper 2 and Paper 3 of this subject have specific grading criteria. The only difference is that one is graded by an external examiner, while another one is graded by your subject teacher.

Dive deep into the complete marking scheme of the SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual here.

b) Continuously practice with past year questions and class exercises 

We can't emphasize how important is the role of constant practice when it comes to mastering a skill like drawing. It is only through these practices that you will be able to observe the recurring question patterns and apply what you have learnt directly in class.

You can also practice by looking at the sample work of your seniors who have sat for the test and also from your subject teachers.

c) Receive additional guidance from a drawing tutor 

There's no harm in going the extra mile when you are determined to score well for an important examination like SPM. It's even more understandable if you are seriously considering continuing your tertiary studies in an art-related field after this.

Having a private tutor will help you to be more well prepared for all the 3 papers of the SPM Pendidikan Seni Visual subject.
