    So this is obviously a new spec for Geography and there arent many schools doing it, but I figured I start a thread so people could talk about it, specifically the NEA. I've just got back from a week of fieldwork and am now collating data and info to write my project. I've looked through the marking scheme and its pretty confusing and difficult.
    Basically this is a thread for any other OCR geographers that need help with the spec and NEA.

    My school is doing OCR, we are doing the NEA at the moment and it is v difficult for all of us. We are also learning hazardous earth now. Most of us are stuck on statistical methods - not sure whether we need them if our data doesn't suffice and if it will stop us from reaching higher marks? V confusing!!

    We are about to start Hazardous earth, its the last topic we need to cover. Ive been told that statistical analysis needs to be applied if it can be, and for qualitative data you can use methods like coding. The teachers are as confused by the NEA as we are because its new and the independent side is horrifically strict.
