The limbic system is a collection of brain structures such as the hypothalamus, amygdala etc that simply put is the 'prim...

Re: Assessment 1 question 6

That's pretty much how I did it. I wrote about a small paragraph (in a table) for each one. The next question asks you to look at the advantages and disadvantages of each method so you can discuss a little further here.

Re: lifecycle of a protozoa

Hi Chris As far as lifecycle is concerned, I just gave a brief overview of how they reproduced... ie is it sexual/asexual for TAQ1 (as well as other characteristics compared to other pathogens such as size, structure, how they are transmitted etc). I didn't go into the full lifecycle until one of th...

Re: Cover Sheet!?!

I think I know what they might have meant. Basically once you have completed the assessment you need to upload it to DLC website not e-mail it to them directly. So when you complete an assignment, you have to post it along with the completed criteria sheet to your tutor, when they receive it the wor...

Re: unit 2 How does the hypothalamus sends information?

Hi Gabrielle The hypothalamus is part of both systems. It is the main link between the nervous system and the endocrine system. Think of it as the main control centre which receives input from both the nervous system and the endocrine system, but initiates responses through the endocrine system. It ...

Re: Confused!!

Well done :D You really can't fail your level 2 as you can get as much help from your tutor as you need and resub until you pass. It is only when you get to level 3 that things change slightly, but it is not as awful as you may think. You can still get help from your tutor (like we explained above) ...

Re: Struggling with GW Essay Grrr

Hi Will it help if you try and expand the research on some of the areas, i.e., by saying that temperatures are expected to rise by ? degrees as a result of X. You may find it much easier this way to put something into your own words. When I was doing the global warming essay I found the following we...

Re: Finished my course

I have found the whole course testing, exciting, interesting, tiring, a big hair pulling experience(at times), a great boost when you get the high distinction grades, and had lots of help off of this forum, it's great, and everyone is friendly and always ready to help you out. If you put the time i...

Re: Assessment 1 Q6

Re: Little bit of help pleaseon ass 2? :D

Hi Becky Q5. I didn't use this variable, although it could feasibly be used. I would suggest you find evidence that would support this and reference it. Q7. There is a flow chart at the back of your module which will help you choose the correct statistical test, i.e. related t test, chi square test ...

Re: Confused!!

I've noticed that lots of people say to contact the Tutor if you have any questions but I read somewhere that if the Tutor has to help you a lot then you can't get a distinction and I need distinctions for my chosen Uni. How will I know how much is too much? What I've tended to do when I'm not sure...
