Im not sure about your specification but mine came like you lay it out step by step it was basically instructions on my sheet of paper and once you finished you write a report on it. However i thought the NEA was scrapped cause people were cheating im not doing it anymore so my gcse is now fully based on my exam my written work.

We will find out on Monday if NEA has been scrapped for 2018 + 2019 Computer Science classes. This is relevant for all exam boards.

Considering the chaos with OCR withdrawing and replacing the previous (two? I heard from someone) NEA tasks due to leaks this might be a good move.

These were their 'options' (OCR):
-Scrap it, and have two exams at 50% each
-Do what they do in science, like a required practical, and have two exams at 50% each
-Give a BTEC-like qualification for practical (Pass, Merit, Distinction, Distinction*) and have a GCSE in Computer Science, with two exams each at 50%

For the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 cohort, they may do the first option suggested above.

I believe so. In my school, at least - the school has to give us 20 hours to complete the task, verify this with OCR, but we are allowed to use the internet and help each other. It is just good practice - counts towards nothing.
