Hey guys, I'm planning on taking food preparation and nutrition as my GCSE and I've heard people saying that you need to do a lot of course work. What do they include and are they hard? Since it's going to be my year 11 I need to focus more on my compulsory subjects and I can't spend much time on my side GCSEs I want to get an idea of how hard it is. Thank you

I think you should divide your work up on each subject equally, food preparation and nutrition is still a worthy GCSE to have.

In terms of the work load, I believe the coursework is 75% and then you have exams in May to fill the 25% of examinations. What is your exam board? And have you had a look at their specification for this subject? Their is a lot of coursework but it’s manageable and can be quite interesting- in terms of what I’ve heard from other people’s opinions.

It's 50% exam and 50% NEA. No GCSEs are more than 50% coursework any more.
