    The short of it is, How can i get a high grade with a game project, My teacher keeps pushing me and telling me its not good enough to be above a D grade,i had already switched to make it a 3d game after telling me to do so and now he wants me to do more with it but i just don't know how, I'm considering just starting something completely different instead

    Hi! I'm struggling too, my teacher seems fairly clueless as to what is going to get us good grades. I wanted to make a game but was warned of it so now I'm doing a project that I've actually no idea how to program! :rofl:
    Honestly I believe you can get above a D with a 3D game, in fact our school bought some example coursework and both of the students in these examples had made games, 2D may I add, and both achieved A grades. I'd say carry on with the game and don't stress it, it's only 20% after all! (well it is for OCR.)

    The exam board should have a copy of the document containing what type of structures/programming techniques are required to achieve X number of marks in each section. Follow that.

    Are you writing all the code yourself? Or are you using a drag 'n' drop software to generate the code for you?

    Implement databases into your game. Have complex SQL or no-SQL queries inside of your code.

    Code defensively, expect to have errors and throw / catch exceptions when necessary.

    Add a web based leader-boards feature for your game.
