    Hello all, I was struggling with the Research Methods topic in the AQA Psychology specification. I got an E in a test for this topic but then I improved in other topics by getting a B, A* and A* in three other tests. Does anyone know how I can improve on research methods, how should I revise?

    Thank you

    hi, not sure if the aqa spec is the similar to wjec which I'm doing, but a lot of the time I find I go wrong with the research methods questions as I don't always remember to contextualise my answer - in wjec marks are given for applying the research method to the question and situation given. So adding context, and applying, as well as the method itself may be something to remember.
