    I believe we are starting the specimen one soon.

    Our teacher said we are starting the NEA in February or so.

    February? That's just a month before you have to submit it?!
    I guess every lesson you have will be NEA based during the month of February?

    Damn, we started a few weeks ago because it's only 20% of your GCSE so our teacher is trying to get it out of the way

    Same. we started last week.
    My teacher wants to give us a chance to think about what we're going to do that's why he gives us an hour a week.

    Being the first group in my school to do the Computer Science GCSE, I'm kinda stressed because I don't know exactly what they expect of us especially in the analysis section of the coursework as there is no mark scheme for the specimen NEA and this is the first time any of our teachers are doing this exam. Does anyone have any insight (most notably for the analysis and design stages) as to what (and how much) we are expected to do for the NEA.Thanks in advance.

    Funnily enough, the NEA is horrible. It wouldn't usually be that bad but because my current teacher has not taught us anything, it's hard to do the actual tasks...
    A couple of posts up, I was saying how I started my NEA a few weeks back, but after complaints, the department at school has decided to postpone the NEA for a month of so...
    But overall, the analysis part of the NEA is probably the easiest. For me, the rest is pretty difficult. Tbh, Computer Science is the only subject bringing my overall grades down... (I'm on level 5)
    Buutttt, good luck to you on your NEA!

    Just started the Edexcel NEA and I'm on the analysis stage. How are you guys finding it? I'm scared of coding in Python and using Pseudocode but other than that I'm hoping I get a good mark since I want to take ICT further down the line. Anybody got any tips?
