AQA A level DT NEA Help booklet (for students & teachers)

(0)
An NEA A level “how to guide” which takes students through the sections of the NEA (AQA). A guide which can be discussed in lessons, form teaching and allows students to work independently on their NEA controlled assessment. It lists tasks that students should consider to include for each section as an easy to read step by step jobs list. The booklet breaks down the sections showing the percentages per section. The booklet also includes a breakdown of the marking critieria for each section. Grades A*-D have been listed and not E-U because it was felt when I made this booklet students should be ‘aiming high’ and not focusing on the lower grade bands. This could be added. Within each section (A-E) is a notes page for students/teacher to make notes based on 1-2-1 meetings in lessons.
