HIGHER level candidates were required to be more creative in the way they answered the questions in the appreciation of art section.

Liz Morrissey of the ASTI and Mount St Michael, Rosscarbery, Co Cork, thought it was complex paper for the time given.

Angela Griffith at The Institute of Education, Dublin, said the questions were "very nicely phrased" although they did require students to be more creative in their answers.

She said one issue that might have caught some students out was that there was no direct question on Impressionism.

Ms Morrissey said ordinary level candidates had a straightforward paper.
