Are D.T students coursework being looked at or is it teachers predicted grades? I’m so confused and I feel like my school doesn’t know what it’s doing.

Ofqual's guidance says:
It is important that schools and colleges take into account the full range of available evidence when they grade students - including non-exam assessment; the results of any homework assignments or mock exams; and any other records of student performance over the course of study.
but schools were told not to ask students to continue on their NEA after schools shut.

So why is my school saying they're not using their predicted grades and that they will look at our coursework? I'm going to attach the images of all the work they're giving us for GCSE which aren't even taking place I'm exposing them.

I believe (at least for AQA) the NEA will be looked at by your teachers but it will not be moderated by the exam board.

AQA have stated on their website
"Students don't need to complete their NEA.

You also don’t need to send us any marks for NEA that your students have already completed, as we won’t be doing any moderation this summer.".


This is applies to AQA DT. Hope this helps

Because they have been told to use the NEA as part of the evidence, but only the work completed before the schools shut. They won't be submitting it to the exam board but as it's a large part of the work you've been doing, it makes sense to use your progress in it as one of the factors in deciding your grade. (Your predicted grade will have been partly based on this too).
