No this is for AQA (my bad should have put that in the title)
I can make one for Edexcel if you want or you can do it if you prefer

Im revising the same way but I dont think im failing. I got 79/100 on coursework and find both the theory and maths for the 1st exam easy. The second paper is more tough because it requires less common sense and more factual knowledge. For this paper just remember key words when compairing products for suitability.

Good luck everyone

Yeah i finished, i knew the product was a bit **** but my portfolio was pretty good and i thought i could get at least 50 with just the portfolio, hoping that it's been marked really *****y and moderation bumps up the marks

has anyone got any good revision resources? the textbook is so vague with so many mistakes in it. also I f****d up the first paper cos I got 2 of the maths questions wrong because I had no idea what the little circle symbol with the line through it was (and I take maths lol) so I thought it was perimeter but it wasn't

I'm pretty sure there isn't a section for the product itself in the marking but rather you are accessed by how well your portfolio meets the various criteria for each of the sections. So its not really about how good the final product is and about how well you researched, tested, annotated, explained it is (and too a lesser extent how well manufactured it is).
Did you teacher show you/did you look up the different sections your marked against. As it helps you know what exactly you needed in you coursework and to want extent you needed to do it to get top marks.
