Geography NEA word limit HELPWatch
Some people in the class have done 7,000-10,000 words and were told that if they did that, the whole class would be marked down by the exam board. Are they lying? lazy? what's going on?
Im pretty sure the NEA can be over 4000 words, its just that the exam board have recommended 4000 because it is a lot of words after all and it takes a lot of time to read through it and may impact what mark you may get if you write a lot because eventually the examiner will get tired of reading so much, but I'm pretty sure you cant cant massively marked down because they never told you the max is 4000 words its just a recommendation. hope that helps in anyway what was your enquiry question btw ? and what exam board are you on?
Enquiry was 'To what extent are infiltration rates in [forest nearby] determined by rates of footfall?'
So I did my NEA last year and wrote around 7500 words I think? And it didn’t affect my marks at all I got 60/60, I think it’s less about the actual word count and more about the fact that over 4000 words you might start waffling
