    I'm afraid i can't help you on that! It's much easier to modify a study that's been already done, and you lose no marks at all. See if any studies have been done on that area, look at the method's and hopefully you should be able to formulate your own one.

    Like before, just replicate a study which has already been carried out. Remember, not all studies are experimentally valid so if you do the same one and find different results, you could prove them wrong and you would have more things to write about. I just copied Brown-Peterson on STM and got enough marks to keep me happy.

    Don't carry your experiments on kids! We were advised not to have participatns who were under 16 -ethical guideline sheet proposes they are vulnerable...also examiners may be wary of your use

    I suppose you could use a classroom, have two conditions, with sixthform particpants, they all have to sit a test...and one room will have male participants, the other female particpants...they could be aged 16-18, selcected through a self selecting sample who signed an ehtical consent form you devised...i really don't know who you would do it...ok 'm confused as you are. Could you not replicate a well known study?

    Your experiment will not be totally flawless...that gives you all the more reason to clock more marks in your discussion section hwere you talk about the limitations of your experiment

    The thing is it's easier, better to actually modify a study that's been done, because you have more information, so much more to talk about, as well as being able to talk about related studies in your intro...do what you feel is best and good luck x
