    I get that we aren't allowed to give answers for controlled assessment, but I need help formulating answers
    I just need pointers on how to write out each question,
    like question 3 (what should I include)?

    Q3. Compare the results of your own investigation with the data from other groups and any information you collected in your research.
    Suggest and explain reasons for similarities and differences

    BTW my exam board is OCR, if that's any help, and I'm aiming for an A-A*

    Okay pointers in general :
    -Make sure yo really understand what you have to do- makes assessment easier and better piece of writing.
    -look at the data carefully and ask your self what does this show and the ask your self does it link with prediction and task.
    -do you have enough data to back up any comments remember you can manipulate data.
    -always ask why and put because... Explain yourself always!

    Question three:
    -like I said before look at data and really try and see if it answers the question.
    -show three different things your data shows and write about them individually they to explain why for A/A*.
    -to explain why why has this happened "my data shows this correlation because..."
    -get the data you are comparing it with and do exactly the same put as much detail in as possible and try and explain why....(do as separate para)
    -for final paragraph talk about both sets of data together differences and similarities and yet again why this could have happened

    Hope it helps and makes sense just ask if not.
