    Hi, I'm doing the A453 Programming Project and my project is an arithmetic quiz for primary school children, which I'm developing in Python 3.x.

    I created a while loop containing the question-asking-and-answering-and-checking-answer (phew!), but I then realised that using a for loop would be much more efficient and quick, so I changed it to a for loop instead.

    However, I'm unsure if I should remove all evidence of a while loop from my development, testing and plan or if I should keep it all there and say that I changed it to a for loop. If I keep evidence of a while loop in my plan (as well as everything else), would I not be marked down?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I suggest you keep it in there and write in the development (or evaluation) that you changed it, and say why. I'm pretty sure you won't be marked down if you acknowledge that you changed it, and explaining how you developed your program will probably help you gain marks for the development part.
