    Too damn right.

    You would have thought the least they would have done before coming and asking on a forum, is look for a website for the shopping centres which turn out at the top of the list on the MSN Search site.

    And it so happens that each of the centres websites has specialised Students Packs viewable online !

    At least I didnt give in to doing all the work for um and finding out the dates - just reminds people that you have to do at least some work to pass a subject.

    i m doing my work, i ve seen a coursework for this geo, which was for 50 pages and it was for a grade C. I wanna grade A*, so i guess i need 70 pages.

    There isn't a single A* model. As long as it is A* quality (it would probably have to be a certain length to get all the info in) you will get an A*

    In theory - it is quality not quantity.
    In practice - you nearly always have to write a lot to get an A* in geography coursework.

    I did my coursework on shopping trends (on SEG (AQA) Syllabus A) - I got 30/30 raw mark - which was an A* obvs. I wrote 72 pages and repeated way, way, way too many graphs. I could have streamlined the thing to 50-odd pages and still got an A*.

    If you are doing a hypothesis which involves a lot of quantitative analysis - the key thing is that you vary your analysis techniques i.e. use different types of graphs, annotated photographs, interviews, maps with overlays etc.

    Most people that I know who got A* (30/30) wrote from between 55-85 pages. As a guide though, I would aim for 60-70 pages. My teacher went to a conference with the chief examiner - who produced an A* piece which was 35 pages long! :eek:

    Different subject, I know, but in OCR Design Technology Resistant Materials GCSE - I got 103/105 and my write-up was about 120 A3 pages long (2 A3 sleeve folders worth). The exam board apparently said in a meeting that you could get an A* in 35 pages (and have an example to prove it!!!) - I mean wtf!!! Having done the thing, I believe that to be a ridiculous comment. You usually have to write a shitload to get a top A* (in my experience).

    Use the links, theres shed loads more info in there than just the construction dates, and it might be useful to you.

    Just remember to credit the sites in the Bibliography at the end of your project, which is definately one of the criterium for you to get above a C.

    Sugar - I wish I had my project to look over and give you hints - but I don't.

    Are you examining shopping trends and have you done a survey then?

    A few things that I would do (by no means an exhaustive list, just what I can remember):

    - You should scan your survey sheet in and annotate it - this looks good and scores highly. This should go in your methodology. Keep all the original survey sheets/tallys etc. and bung them in your appendix.

    - You should take (or have taken) photos of the road - from where you were doing the survey. If you have a series of photographs, you can compare different times of the day. If you haven't/can't be arsed to go back and take some - make sure you have an annotated photograph of the place where you did the surveys.

    - The biggie is obviously matching together time and location (spatial) according to the change in volume of traffic (I suspect?). Make sure you use loads of different types of presentation methods - choloropleths are great if you can use them, overlayed graphs, flowlines are critical here.

    - Go to your local library to the archives and dig out newspaper articles, planning articles etc. They can be amazingly useful and score highly.
