    Has anyone completed this course and actually done well? Because literally all the years before NO ONE passed, I was wondering if ANYONE has actually passed (lol), if so, please leave some tips (especially about the coursework)

    I’ve completed this course and got a C on the short tasks, B on the child study and B on the exam and ended up with a C overall. It’s honestly not hard if you put in a lot of work. Gl

    Although I didn't do OCR I did do AQA and achieved an A*. Assuming that the coursework is similar (I had to do a research task and a child study), spending time on the work is really what is needed.

    For the child study, find a textbook and use this to create a mind map for the development milestones you'll be expecting to see (literally write down all of them). Then when it comes to writing work up, use this and comment on everything. Detail is key!

    For the short research tasks, honestly again I just wrote in as much detail as I could. Using google scholar might help as well?

    I hope that some of this was helpful!
