    FIELD STUDY Danni :)

    Hey guys, I'm currently filling out my field study and i was wondering if anyone had any general tips , like should i use 'I' instead of 'We'?, can i include names?, the general layout especially for the results,conclusion and evaluation section, does the word count really matter ?, that sort of thing. I would appreciate it alot ;)

      Hi! It is better to use "we"more than "I" as you were not the only one doing the study. You can also use "I" but wherever it is appropriate ( whatever you did).

      The word count is important i say, especially in AIMS and PLANNING where they can easily count all words.

      That is really bad advice because the examiner only cares about what YOU DID .Make most things are in the I.As in "I measured along the River"" I placed the tennis ball in water whilst my friend took the times. If you use we that does n,t show what you did and for this Project, if you want full marksYOU DID EVERYTHING your class only helped. And be really creative be an indvidual because each examiner has to correct 400 of these.

      Its also about quality not quantity .you can be 100-300 words less I promise you if its good and it doesn't bore the Sh^7% out of them they have wont check.They have of 400 of these per examiner! Think about how many word counts would you be arsed to do For an underpaid summer job in July while everyone else is partying.

      You can also use we everywhere and add in "I did (such and such) during this trial" which saves words and is a lot more tidy looking.

      yes Syed is correct, the examiner will not have time to actually carry out a word count. It looks better to say 'I' rather than 'we', example in the gathering its not what we did its what I did, what my method of obtaining information was, in detail step by step. also include plenty of labelled diagrams with a summary sentence beneath. You have to show the examiner that you really understand/know.

      For your R/C/E it should be result conclusion result conclusion then a final overall evaluation with relation to your initial aims.

      remember, you can write whatever you want in the diagrams. Make sure it is in a box. that way its easier to write in the gathering info etc

      Im worried that I messed it up because in gathering information I said nothing about observing human interaction but in results I said there was evidence of human interaction?

      Also I never said about collecting rock type of get but included the rock types I found and what that told me in my results and conclusions.

      I need help

      How many results/conclusions/evaluations do you need in total? I've been hearing different things from different people so now i'm not sure :(

      one result and one conclusion for each gathering previously mentioned and then an overall evaluation.
