Dear John! I have some questions I hope you can answer as I am new to the course, and have had to take over a class midway : 1) Should the students consider HM a case study where they can include Corkin et al. AND Milner and use them as one? Or should we look at them separately? The question is related to SAQs and LAQs where they are asked to discuss or describe ONE research method used to .... 2) After haviing markes dome mocks and trial papers, I also find that the mark boundaries used before has a very large interval for grade 7, compared to the other grades. Is this always or often so, or have there been exceptional mark boundaries for the last two years? Maggie

Dear Margrethe

Most students write about the case study and include both researchers - even though they could be clearly discussed as two different studies. As for the markbands, these are the normal markband ranges. They vary only by a few marks every year. - Best wishes for taking over the course midway. Not the easiest task. I hope that you have enjoyed teaching it, in spite of the obvious stress of taking over someone else's work.

Dear John! Thank you so much for the answer and encouragement! I have enjoyed the teaching of this course, even though it has been a lot of work, and still is! I hope to continue with a new class next year, though, so my 'investments' should not be wasted. :)
