I am studying a level computer science (aqa). I am working on my programming project and as this is my first project, I am not sure if I will do too well, I am trying my best. I've been told that its only 20% of the final grade. If I am aiming for an A* in computer science, will 20% of the grade be significant if I don't do so well in the NEA, but manage to ace paper 1 and paper 2?

I'm not sure about AQA, but for OCR they publish the grade boundaries and outline what you need overall to get every grade. It is most likely possible that you are able to get an A* by doing very well in the exams and not doing amazingly in the NEA, however that's a risky bet. If the NEA isn't going well, I wouldn't massively worry as it's more of a cushion to your grade, as long as you do decently well you're exams should be the defining factor of your grade.
