GCSE Edexcel Design Technology 18th June 2024

There are literally no threads for this anywhere
Does anyone have any revision methods (I’m doing timbers) for this exam, we’ve never learnt any theory cuz they just focused on our NEA projects.
Are there any predicted topics like the sciences? Are there any common questions asked every year? And how can i cramp all of this in the next 24 hours? Or am i cooked.

I do AQA Design technology and there are literally 0 resources. The only half decent one I've found is Seneca.
I would recommend going through the Seneca, then answering exam style questions (especially long answer ones because those are the ones most people struggle with) and finally drawing. Don't forget to practice drawing because they can be quite easy marks (if you know how to do it), it would be a shame to lose like 6 marks over drawing because you didn't practice. Hope this helps, good luck!
