Ok so Idk if this is the right subject forum to post this in but bear with me here. Ok so I’ll get straight to the point, I take food tech for GCSE’s and we’ve done our mocks for NEA1 and 2. Right now we’re focusing on the real NEA1, right, but after talking to my teacher she’s said that I’ve done too much work. Now I’m one of the students in class that writes a lot and I tend to get high grades because of it but don’t ramble on

Basically I’ve been told I need to have the whole NEA at 6-8 pages ?! And only 1500 words. Like..? Is this right because considering the amount of work she wants me to do, it seems like not enough and I’ve already gone over that limit. I’m at 8 pages and I haven’t even written up my 2nd or 3rd investigation yet.

Someone please confirm whether this is true or not

Yeah I've been told the same thing. 6-8 pages isn't a requirement, it's just recommended, but you have to have between 1500-2000 words.

I’m so glad someone else has done the same as me. I’ve just finished the research and investigations parts and I’m already way over on the word counts. Have you condensed yours yet?? Idk really know how to

Omg same we’ve done the research part and now we’re on investigation 3 and writing that up. And what do you mean condensed? I have no idea what you mean by that lol. But yeah I’m now really really over the word count and I’ve talked to my teacher who said to just go over later and worry about the word count at the end when we can edit it over. I’m just so confused about the whole thing tbh lol

Oh yeah my teacher said she would go through it with me at the end and she would help to get rid of things but all while, not affecting my grade by doing so. Also, the experiments I did were: 1) experimenting using different flours - seeing how it affect taste and texture obviously, 2) experimenting using different fats - same approach, 3) this time we used different liquids like types of milk or eggs instead of water. But yeah I kinda ran out of ideas tbh for experiments so I’m gonna make up for it with the writing up instead. Oh also my teacher has suggested to me, because I want to get higher grades, she’s helped in booking the science lab for students who want to go after school and do a 4th experiment, so like testing the percentage of fat, etc. I don’t even know tbh

ahhh that sounds really good. I did types of flour too then ratio of butter to flour and water and then time in the oven. She hasn’t told us about doing a fourth one so I kinda assume we’re only doing 3 at our school but doing the percentage of fat is kinda similar to my ratio of flour and butter one and it went pretty well, only thing is that would obviously add more words

Yeah I suppose so. I can’t believe you didn’t do the full practical !! Omg. Well for the real practical the only thing is that I don’t think it’ll be so bad like before I was freaking out but I think if your organised and make a time plan, as well as practicing the high skill dishes at home beforehand then I think it’ll be fine
