The Ordinary Level paper is 200 marks.
As I said in the other thread, I think the weighting is different for the two levels.

Still a few bits and bobs to do, polishing it up and then wiring.. There'll be a few skipped classes and a few long evenings, I've no doubt!

Hi lads,

Just doing the folio at the minute and was wondering in the portfolio when you give your 3 possible solutions, can one of these 3 be the solution you actually chose?

Thanks

Isn't it supposed to be done almost 2 weeks ago? But yeah you could use use one as the final solution or go on to develop the design further

Drawing up 3 possible solutions to a project that's already built? How demeaning.

Anyway to answer your question: Yeh write about aspects of your chosen design in the investigation section. It shows the examiner your thought process, or should I say, fools the examiner into thinking you had one
