    Weird! I was retaking and found it harder than last year, the median question confused me a little as to when it would be appropriate, I couldn't think! And also I felt like I was repeating myself a lot, saying that observations, or opportunity sampling would not allow for informed consent! So not sure! How about you?

    I found it quite good except for Section C: I don't know wether I put the random sampling question in enough context; I don't know if my procedure was even testing the aim in the 10 marker; and I don't know if the last question was right (it said suggest the effect of the change to your procedure, but I don't know if I answered it correctly )

    But overall it was fine.

    I'm re-taking this unit as I got a an E last year :confused: lol I got a really high B in core studies tho so I ended up getting a C. Hopefully I can get a B in this. The 10 mark questions are the worst ���������� �������
    So...how did everyone find that....

    Yeah I felt the same, I kind of changed the aim in the 10 mark question to fit my procedure more, whether I'll get any marks for that I don't know, do you know why median is better sometimes?! Cause I just couldn't think why! The effect question was worded weirdly normally I have the set structure I need for each question but that one I kinda just answered it!

    median is better sometimes as its not affected by anomalous results

    Ah, well I didn't put that but at least I put down how to calculate it in context also, so will have dropped one or two marks there!

    Guys, for the observation section, in the question where it asked for the sampling method, what did you all write? Bc me and many people in our class wrote opportunity sampling and now we are freaking out bc we think it was actually event sampling?

    For the final 2 questions I put I would alter the study by using a structured interview as opposed to questionnaire as this way it would still remain self report, I said this would effect the results as participant may be influenced more but the pressure of a face to face interview and be influenced by demand characteristics and social desirability... I wasn't entirely sure so just gave it a go... As a whole I found the exam really good, much better than last years ( I'm retaking)
