    Is this for the new AQA Spec? If so, the syllabus lists the content you need:
    • Brief discussion of the reasons for choosing the investigation focus.
    • What the investigation is trying to find out (aims).
    • An evaluative account of how the data was collected and organised for analysis.
    • Approaches to analysis.
    • Analysis and interpretation of the findings, responding to the aim of the investigation.
    • Critical consideration of relevant concepts and issues surrounding the topic area.
    • Analysis of the contextual influences upon the data collected.
    • Interpretation of the findings of the investigation linked to the aim/focus of the investigation.
    • A list of all sources used (paper and web-based).
    • Clean copies of the collected data.
    • Evidence to support quantitative approaches

    You can use headings and sub-headings in your work, which makes things easier. Start by explaining why you chose this topic. What have you noticed about the way in which political language is used? Is there a recent event that has brought this to the fore? E.g
    "In the recent Brexit debate many politicians were accused of not giving straight answers or using emotive language to avoid discussing the facts. I will be investigating whether or not this accusation is true. I have decided to focus on televised interviews because these are when the politicians spoke directly to an audience rather than being moderated by someone else as they are in the written press. The investigation will look at the language politicians use when responding to questions rather than political speeches because I feel that this is a time when language use is more spontaneous..."
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
