    I am starting the NEA this Tuesday, but I feel really unprepared, I have been told I will be doing the quiz, but am really unsure on how to write it.
    Are you guys going to write a GUI and how long are you expecting your code to be?

    I start the NEA tomorrow, but I'm so unprepared because we missed lots because our teacher was absent for 11 months! We are not using a GUI, instead we are using Python to output questions and a text file to store data. I don't know what one we are doing, but I think we might be doing the quiz as we did a practise quiz last week in class where we learned how to store data in text files. Good luck

    Sorry, I'm really bad at explaining things. There are some good YouTube videos that helped so they are good for learning/revision. For the NEA it would be useful to learn how to read, write and append text files.

    My teacher has been an OCR examiner since he qualified as a teacher more or less. He said that a GUI will not net you extra marks, or will likely get you 1, maybe 2. Programming in the NEA is 18 marks iirc, and it is more than possible to get every one without using a GUI. Spend your time on the write up, explanation etc, thats where all the marks are more or less.

    At GCSE you do not need a GUI. As someone said above the actual programming isn't worth many marks compared to other aspects (design, testing, evaluation etc.) so don't worry if you can't/don't do a GUI.
