    yeah it was really hard, i'm retaking it from last year and this one was harder there was so many trick questions. Yeah i didn't think it could be anything other than opportunity sampling but then i've been reading whats on here and maybe it could be event? because usually in the scenario that they give it would tell you that they approached the participants but it didn't so i guess it was a covert observation... and ah i definatley have not got an A, i don't even think i got a C

    I know for example the last section was crazy, and nah nah it can't be come on? and yeah it can be a covert oppurtunity sample because they still used people around, as long as you justified it its calm. And nahh you should be alright

    To start off with I did exactly what you said talking about people fall over then aother researcher observes who helped but then I soon realsied that it is a self report so I had to change it to them watching a video clip and completing a self report. I feel like what we did might be wrong BUT! you justified it more so you could possibly get the marks

    IKR I started writing a procedure copying Pilavian study but then realised it had to be self report :/. Luckily i had some spare time to retain some marks from the question

    I did the same! I wrote on my procedure basically based on the piliavin study however with no observers, and at the end, people went around and handed out questionnaires for the passengers to fill out, I think I did it wrong though:/ and for the section B question its event because event is a method and opportunity is a technique (not a method) but I put opportunity

    well you may still marks as your included self report in your method and still get up 5 marks for evaluation. For the sampling technique they may accepts opportunity was the question was very vague. i wrote event sampling still don't if this is right tho.

    I hope I still get marks I just really want an A grade that's true, the examiners might accept opportunity as the majority of the students answered opportunity, I'm sure event sampling it correct

    What was the question again? Was it changes or a change to help improve the ethics of the procedure? All I remember was putting up a poster on the train to inform that an experiment was happening sometime, making sure there was informed consent but I think it was wrong :confused:
