    For the inferential statistical tests, say if you get a wilcoxon tests and a significance of 0.05 and a group size of 10, where T = 12, how do you calculate the critical value?

    That came up last year in the non replacement paper so unlikely to come up however aqa can be horrible sometimes so fingers crossed

    I do posters and put them up on my wall. Then revision cards. I type up a full essay on the computer, print it. I start my learning the essay by learning 2 paragraphs a time. I do this by writing it down on paper a lot of times and I type it up on the computer over and over again until I learn it.
    For media I usually start my learning the studies and looking at the mark schemes to check.
    Research methods past papers and learning the definitions of what they mean.
