My Place -Writing up your work…

Before you do anything, make sure you have

  • Completed all your evidence, graphs etc…
  • Given each piece of evidence a number.  For example, a photo of Upper Bath Street may be P1.

Yes, each piece of evidence requires a number!  🙂

You can need to return to your original hypothesis (see your front sheet). Using your evidence you must state whether you can support or dismiss your hypothesis.

Here is the example of a piece of writing from the support sheets.


How do I start?

  • Write your hypothesis at the top of a new page.
  • Take each piece of evidence in turn. When referring to your evidence, use the number you gave it, E.G. photograph one shows a car park on Upper Bath Street…
  • Describe what it shows you, if available use figures to support your descriptions. E.G. Audit one of Upper Bath sheet was given an overall score of 80%…
  • Explain your findings, say why you think you got what you did! If possible, use geographical terminology. E.G. I think Upper Bath Street scored well on the audit because the environment is good, it has been pedestrianised which makes it safer for shoppers…
  • Try and cross-reference your evidence. E.G. Audit one of Upper Bath Street was given an overall score of 80%, this is very positive, it means it has a good environment, this is supported by photograph one of Upper Bath Street, as you can see..
  • Try to spot any contradictions. E.G. Audit two shows South Street, it was given an overall score of 35%, this surprises me, because my labels on photograph one of South Street are mostly positive, perhaps this is because…


  • Considering all your evidence, can you support or dismiss your hypothesis? Explain why, why not. E.G. Overall I think I can dismiss my hypothesis because..

You may have to redraft this several times, before you are happy with your final piece. Be concise and avoid repetition.

Finally, make sure you have completed everything on the checklist. You can now organise your work, and produce a front cover with your hypothesis and name on it.

The deadline for this piece is Monday 18th of June.

Remember, no coursework, no mark.

Good luck.  🙂

    Hi, is there a minimum or maximum length that this has to be?

    Not as such, but make sure your work is concise and avoid repetition.
