    Hi, we have been asked to think of a topic on food study investigation which will account for 25 - 30% of GCSE grade. I need to hand in my topic in a couple of days. What sort of things do people do? Please help.:mad:

    I studied the link between type two diabetes and obesity for mine. What's also useful is that my grandma is diabetic so I was able to interview her to get information. Try and choose something that either you or your friend/family member can relate to so you can interview them to put in your research
    Other people in my class did stuff like:
    -Vegetarians
    -Coeliacs
    -Obesity
    -Healthy living
    -Ready meals

    ...or some people just focused on a specific nutrient or group of people!

    Good luck

    What have you decided to do?
    And mine was 130 pages long for the whole project o.o
    In my class of 11 people there's a few A*s I think. Apparently I got an A, but I don't know yet!
    For the three short tasks you had to get 54/60 for an A*, and I think it's the same for the long task as it is also out of 60. The grade boundaries are sooo high, don't get me started on the theory paper :/
    Good luck

    Hi, Still debating on what I should do. Haven't been told a lot about this at school so am unsure. Did you do the 130 pages during your hols or during the school week? Its so much work and pressure. I thought this option would have been a breather for me. We've done 3 controlled assessments and I got A* in those. Thanks for all your help and will have a long think this weekend and may get in touch if I need to go through some stuff.
