What guidance have you had? Have you checked the specification at all?

Talk to your teacher. My understanding is that, whereas there used to be several different sort of GCSE DT (e.g. Resistant Materials, Graphic design, electronic products, systems and control) there is now only DT and Food Tech. If Textiles falls under the general DT then you could cover any aspect of DT within your GCSE - but check with your teacher as this isn't my specialist subject!

thank you! when i picked my options last year, the subject I chose was textiles so I'm focusing on fabrics and stuff. i think once I complete this gcse, it will fall under qualification of textiles. i asked two teachers, one said my work was completely fine and the other said i need to focus more on textiles :/

I've just checked and Textiles does come under GCSE DT as a GSCE - but might you be doing the Technical award in textiles? https://www.aqa.org.uk/news/new-tech...n-and-textiles

Even though, officially, all the DT options now come under the same GCSE, many schools have continued to teach it as separate options and call it by different names - this may be why your teachers are giving different answers as one has forgotten it is now all officially DT.

Talk to your school to clarify but i believe for textiles your product needs to be fabric based. For NEA product design you are allowed to make your project out of any material but as textiles is a subsection of product design in a way i imagine it's more specific. You will be able to talk about non fabric based products when making evaluations and comparisons providing they fill the same role your product is aiming to provide

Thank you! Yeah, my overall product will have to be textiles based (that's a given)
