The task that is set and the wording of that task are crucial to successful NEA work. As advisers and moderators often point out, a loosely focused task, or a poorly worded one, rarely produces a well-shaped and coherently structured response. This article shows you some of the pitfalls to avoid and advises you on what to include so that you can craft a title that leads to success.
Different schools and colleges vary in the way they approach NEA task-setting, but it is likely that you will have some shared responsibility with your teachers for task-setting. OCR, for instance, expects that ‘the texts and task titles […] should be chosen by the learner in discussion with their teacher’ and ‘teachers will provide detailed guidance to learners in relation to the purpose and requirement of the task’. You should ensure that you think carefully, in any case, about what your chosen task is going to require you to do.
