    Hi, I wouldn't say the concepts are difficult. It's just the quantity of information you have to remember! Some parts are very similar to Biology, for example memory.

    Lange (1973) demonstrated that items are more efficiently recalled when organised into meaningful ‘chunks’, e.g. floor, window, door etc. He basically carried out the exact same study.

    I think it's in the textbook somewhere?

    If you mean "The Development of Conceptual and Rote Recall Skills Among School Age Children", then I can send you the original article if you like (if that's your problem).

    No, I don't think it's that - It's to do with organisation in memory. But thanks.

    Thanks! It was the same format but it wasn't actual past papers.

    Psychology Investigation, did you have to hand in your task sheets (the participants answers) with your logbook?

    Can someone give me feedback on the level of hardness of the course - compared to lets say higher biology? I really need to choose one that I will enjoy, but won't be overly demanding because I cannot keep going into college to ask for help, I won't have time!

    I take it you all would have done your reports now, so I was wondering if anyone could help me with how I do my references correctly?

    Just finished my investigation. Do we need to include the results of the pilot study if one was carried out?

    My report was submitted (and probably been sent of since) just before I broke up for easter holidays

    I never mentioned my pilot study at all, but was asked to attach some answers from the actual experiment. Don't know if it's necessary but I really do not want to even look at that sodding document EVER AGAIN.

    Haha, I know I can't wait to get rid of it. And my Biology one. They get sent off at the end of the week. Have you handed in your log book? Did you have to hand in any of the actual answer sheets the participants wrote on?

    Yeah handed in the logbook. My teacher asked for one of the answer sheets a participant wrote on...? I have no idea why

    I think at least one of the answer sheets has to get kept with your logbook to prove that you have carried out the experiment. But you could have just made up the answers anyway.
