In each Unit, there is a series of Methodology items which appear as the “How Science Works” questions in exams. These appear as M1, M2, M3 and so on in the Methodology section at the bottom of the page…

Please note that this site should not be used as your sole revision guide, because certain bits of the course that have been left out here may be studied as part of your course, and similarly, there may be bits here which you do not need to learn
