    Hey all, the deadline for my resistant materials coursework is really close and i was wondering if anyone had any tips or resources to help out with the paperwork, the rest is alright for me but I'm having troubles organising myself with the entire write up on PowerPoint. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Organising on powerpoint? If you're doing what I think then wouldn't it be better to use excel, something like a Gantt chart.

    Well I just mean the whole coursework is on powerpoint, rather than having a folder with 20 A3 sheets then we're doing it on a powerpoint, but i think mostly everyone does that now anyway. But i was just looking for some tips on what to actually write for any of the parts of it.

    It's for gcse but it helps a bit you just need to write lods and lods more

    look at the exam boards website on their specification it should have what you should include.

    For my as I did it in power point too, everyone on the course did.
    you should have product specification or a brief, some sorts of market research and product analysis and design sketch and development, final design sketch and drawing, your manufacturing and manufacturing plan with analysis of design and conclusion from what I can remember

    80/90 is awesome! I actually did way better than i expected for not knowing anything about it a week before the deadline. And best tip for the exam is basically plan out your section A, because you can predict exactly what will come up and exactly what you can put, and then the rest is just a matter of learning some content like different adhesives, materials and their uses, and some other kind of techniques. I did my exam last year and got an A* so if you need any help with anything feel free to ask me btw full marks in the exam is possible but i don't think you'd need such a high mark to bring it all to an A* but try your best anyway

    Your teacher should have told you the marks they sent to the exam board on the deadline, but if they don't want to tell you they don't have to, because the marks can change after moderation so some tend not to tell their students till it comes back from moderation, and then you'd get your results in August.

    I think so, but that would have to be after the moderation anyway, so you would have to organise it with your school after you get the actual result in August. But if you think they did then it may go up after moderation for the exam board.
