I am currently doing my NEA for edexcel a level Geography and I am at over 7000 words!! The guide is 3000-4000 and I am worried that I am going to be penalised for it being so long!

Please help

My final NEA was over 22,000 words. In my opinion, the "recommendation" for between 3000-4000 words is nonsense and not long enough. Everyone in my experience their NEA was much longer.

Mine was 10,000 words in the end and I got an A*. In my experience, everyone went over the guide of 3-4000 words, so don't worry about it. If the 7000 words are all useful and contribute to your study, then going over the word limit isn't an issue. It's only an issue if you're waffling unnecessary, which I'm sure you're not doing. To be honest, 3-4,000 words is hard to achieve for a detailed study.

The specification https://qualifications.pearson.com/c...ue-5-FINAL.pdf says:
It is recommended that students write between 3000 and 4000 words for their independent investigation. Students will not be specifically penalised on the basis of the length of their written report. However, excessively high or low word counts may restrict students’ ability to evidence the skills outlined in the marking criteria.

thank goodness! I'm already up to 5000 words just on the data analysis section. I was so worried mine was too long but I'm pretty sure my entire thing will be under 10,000. I know this wasn't my post but thanks for your comment
