    Well, my teachers are currently marking ours over the Christmas holidays and we should get it back next week. Our 'draft' deadline was about 2 months ago and our 'real and final' deadline was about a month ago.

    When was you given this coursework to do? And how come you have left it until now to start it? It's not that hard you know...

    Eh??? How can it be hard if you haven't decided on what to do? Lol. jks

    Anyways, I would suggest on doing memory since that's one of the easiest topics to do. And if you do memory, then probably STM since that is relatively quick and doesn't require participants to spend too much time with you. You could investigate the effects of interference or different types of encoding on STM. Most important thing is doing only what's neccessary and guidelines or mark schemes should help you with that. At the moment, my only advice is don't worry too much about what topic to do because too many people waste time on that. It's your write-up after that which gets you the marks. Anyways, good luck.

    Does your college set some coursework titles for you or something? I think the one you are considering at the moment might be a bit complex. And no, you don't have to always do a questionnaire. If you have done Unit 6 Research Methods, you should have an idea of how to do your experiment. A questionnaire might give you loads of information but it is difficult to analyse because most of the information you gain is qualitative data.

    So why not choose an easier topic? And how come you had to also do coursework last year? I'm on the AQA board and I have only ever done coursework once. Well, I actually did a mock coursework towards the end of last year but so far, I have only done one real one before.
