    I'm having some problems with the conclusion of my GCSE geography coursework because the title of my project is "In Lincoln, are there any differences between the areas of the CBD?". My project is about comparing four different areas of Lincoln's CBD; St. Marks, Waterside, Highstreet and Steephill.
    BUT I've just reached the conclusion and realised that three out of my six hypothesise don't relate to the question!
    The ones that can answer the question are:
    -St. Marks, being the newest area out of the four areas will be more attractive overall
    - I think that buildings would be higher in the High Street.
    -The High Street would be most crowded than the other areas because it is the main street in the CBD.

    But the hypothesis that don't are:
    -Most people would be shopping for high order goods because Lincoln is a city which is higher in the hierarchy.
    -More people will be heading towards the CBD than away.
    - People would travel far to Lincoln to shop as it is a city – i.e, Lincoln would have a large sphere of influence.

    I'm really unsure what to do withe the conclusion because I've just finished analysing them all and if I get rid of the hypothesise that don't fit, it means throwing away half my results and method of data collection too. The deadline is the 10th of September.

    Thank you!

    Say how and why they don't fit.
    On my dissertation i ended up with 2 out of 5 that were wrong or failed to be answered by the data, I ended up with a good grade. The point is its not getting the answers to the questions that matters but how you do the project. From what it sounds you have some good data...so you could answer that you have not found that hypothesis a, b, c, etc. have been proven and then discuss why not.
    -not enough evidence
    -its not what is occuring
    etc.
    good luck with the project

    Hi

    Please don't throw away your results/methods!

    Remember you can change the title right up until you hand it in.
    You can probably alter the hypotheses a bit too. Maybe 'People would travel far to Lincoln to shop...' might become 'People would travel further to St Marks to shop than the other areas' (possibly-if it's new/attractive).

    Think about what data you have and how to make it make sense as a whole. You still have time even to go out and collect more data if there are gaps to be filled.

    Good luck and I must say this sounds impressive- more like my A Level coursework than GCSE (I got As in both)

    Hey thanks for the help - I really appreciate it!

    Another question: as a guide, how long would you say the each analysis and the conclusion should be?

    It depends on your exam board - you need to go onto their websites and see what the criteria are. You ought to have an interim conclusion at the end of each section anyway so when you come to write the final conclusion, all you need to do is to summarise your findings and then discuss how they help answer your main question.
