Can you give me more context? What task are you doing and what is the specification? (Maths Quiz, Addressbook, Password, Encryption task etc)
I've finished my controlled assessment and would be happy to lead you in the right direction.

First of all, thank you so much for ur offer of help.
My task is scenario 4 - traditional application - population model for greenflies
Im mostly struggling with what to include, how much I have to write and how to lay it out.
I really don't know where to get started!
Especially the psuedocode!

Alright, well - I don't really know about that Scenario, if you could put the specification I'd be happy to help lead you in the correct direction.

As for Pseudocode, the whole idea arond it is like a more simple version of code, of which can be interpreted or understood by anyone.

Something like print("Hello TSR!" in Python would translate to PRINT or OUTPUT Hello TSR in Pseudocode, it doesn't really have any set form or standard but some things appear a lot:
INPUT - User inputs something
OUTPUT - Something gets printed
WHILE - Looping
FOR - Count
IF - If statement
ELSE - Else statement

eg.
Code:
```OUTPUT "Do you like TSR?"
