I'm also resitting this exam and basically I think it is the way you write the answers that is the most important aspect of the exam. You have to make a point, explain the point, and use evidence from the source materials to support that point. Always refer back to the source material when answering the questions as this clarifies your understanding of the terminology and you can apply it with the source material. When ever there is a 6 mark question, always give one strength and one weakness as this again is exemplifying your understanding.

All 4 research methods will be used now in this exam as OCR is trying to collaborate two methods in one of the sections such as Experiment and Self Report. So the source material could be, students trying to revise in a noisy room or a quiet room for their GCSE's mock exams. So the IV is the sound level difference between classrooms and the DV is the student's GCSE's mock exams results. OCR could then give the students a questionnaire after they do their mock exams about their thoughts towards the sound level in the classrooms to gather detailed data to support the earlier findings from the mock exam results.

So, you really do need to know all four research methods from back to front. All of the terminology, strengths and weaknesses, the reliability and validity, ethics, and so forth.
