If you read your question you may notice you have not given any details other than stating you need help.

What are you struggling with? Writing the report, meeting the criteria or are you struggling with certain concepts and theories?

More information you can give the easier it is for people to help.

Hey, thanks so much for your reply! I THINK I have the understanding of the questions for the assignment itself but I'm a little confused/worried about the layout. It is to be an academic report, so am I right in thinking the sections 1 - 4 from the assessor guidance would be the "findings" part of the academic report?
If so, according to an earlier unit, an academic report of 2,000 words is advised to be set out as follows:
Title Page (word count: na)
Terms of reference (word count: approx 100)
Contents page (word count: na)
Research Methodology (word count: approx 150)
Findings (word count: approx 1,000)
Conclusions (word count: approx 500 words)
Recommendations (word count: approx 250)
Ref list, Bib and Appendices na

However within the guidence it suggests 300, 300, 500 and 500 for the four sections/questions.. which if this fits under as "findings" would take me well over the word count.
Do I have the right end of the stick? Can I ask for your rough word counts for each section of the academic report? Many thanks!

Good morning,

How did you get on with this? I am in the exact same position as you - the questions don't fit the academic report structure. I have had zero feedback from my assessor and I am getting so frustrated.

Can anyone help me, please?

Title Page n/a
Terms of Ref - 70 words
Contents page n/a
Research Methodology - 75 words
Findings Section One -278
Section Two - 300
Section Three - 529
Section Four - 466
Reference List n/a
Bibliography n/a

That's how I structured mine, it didn't seem fitting to write up recommendations or conclusions, passed Hope this helps!

Where have you obtained your knowledge and information from for your assignment?
Here's what I wrote
"To prepare this academic report I used secondary research. I obtained and read segments of Cardwell, M. Clark, L. and Meldrum, C. ‘s (2003) Psychology for AS-level. Third edition. And Flanagan, C. ‘s (2008) Revise AS & A2 AQA Psychology which I have used as my main sources. There are a number of web pages which can be found in the Bibliography that I also used to help support parts of this report and build my knowledge."

Hi, I know this was posted some time ago but I'm hoping someone may still be able to help. I am stuck on the sociology within health and social care unit, writing the essay. Sociology makes absolutely no sense to me and its really stressing me out. I have no idea where to start or what I need to write about! Can anyone help?

Have you completed the assignment now? My son is on a similar course and we've been struggling with the lack of input from the 'tutor' and the way the question is structured (and the expectation to work within a very tight word count and yet produce a report with every box ticked (and the duplication and wasted words this creates).

• An explanation of social structures theories of crime and deviance.
• An evaluation of a theoretical explanation against the examples of crime and deviance outlined in the case study.
• A discussion of the conclusions you have formed about perceptions of crime of deviancy emerging from news reports.
GUIDANCE
