I have my psychology research methods paper tomorrow and I'm doing it with OCR but we've hardly spent any lessons on it and it is worth 50% of our grade apparently. I would like to get an A in the summer and I got a high B last year but I'm concerned in case I do badly in this exam!
does anyone have any advice on how best to prepare?

You should have a good idea of the content from the Research Methods unit that you may have done in AS, so recap from those notes- some of the stuff you learnt last year would still be relevant this year, but you should now primarily focus on statistical tests I assume [depending on your examination board's specification].

If you're looking for material, this thread has a bit of vague information on potential sources:

I'm doing OCR too, and luckily for us it is very similar to the investigations paper last year! There are only a few extra things on the specification and that's choosing an appropriate statistical test and the probability of chance factors.

I'm gong through past papers from last year creating plans etc. (You can get them on the OCR website!) But the best way for me is talking to myself! I'll tell myself everything I need to know and remember. But, you can do spider diagrams on designs, experiment, observation, correlations, self-report, hypothesis, and the approaches.

But defiantly look at past papers, that's how you'll best be prepared!

Hi,I'm doing an assignment on statistics and I want to know whether independent t-test is a reliable method to compare significant difference but I want to know why it is and also what are the possible limitations of t-test.
Please desperate help!!!!!!
