((( also, my teacher told me if i submit more than one project file i will lose marks, but aqa specification says there is no limit...is anyone taking graphics this year and submiting 2 folders, with an A grade predicted?
but I don't think that would be needed for graphics. Is that when i test and make my model and how come photos will only count here? Justify or explain all decisions, just lie if you didnt really make a conscious decision.

Make sure your folder looks like a GRAPHICS students folder, i.e very crisp presentation etc. dont worry about the overall quality, just make sure you include the problems you had and possible ideas to solve it in your folder.
Make sure you carry out extensive questionnaires, publish the results and display them in relation to other factors, such as how the safety aspects were viewed by parents or how colourful the children found it. Don't be afraid to be critical - there is nothing wrong with saying, 'in light of this research, I think the product could be improved by x, y and z'.

My teacher, bless her, was having a tough time as her husband was struggling with a heart condition so we had to pretty much do the project all by ourselves - so I can see why you are asking for advice.
We were left with about a week for evaluation, although I was the only one to finish on the deadline, so many had less time than that.
The aim of this hand book is to guide you through the process of designing and making in a way that will ensure you meet all of the requirements of the exam board.
This is a step by step approach and none of the steps should be missed out. The majority of students fail because they: Miss out sections of the project Do not meet the required deadlines Produce poor quality, rushed or incomplete work.
BEcause the problem is, what happens if the material i choose is too hard to be glued down with standard pritt stick or PVA glue when it is supposed to be made by children who shouldn't have to use super glue or whatever.
Could i just pretend it is glued down by PVA glue and for the actual thing, use super glue if i do face this problem? Would i photograph me assembling a basic net using one material and talk about pros cons and do same for the other 3.
