Hey,

This would depend on the exact question, but generally, ask yourself these questions:

- related to aim (was the hypothesis supported?)
- to what groups, if any, can this be generalised to?
-  what real-world repercussions does this have?

hi lleeea, the reason I didn't give a sample is because what's really good varies depending on the question. Eg. Sometimes including real-world applications is a waste of time, but sometimes it's what separates a "good" response from a "really good" response. The best way to learn this is by trial and error comparing your responses to the examiners report.


There's a very difficult question in one of the VCAA exams around this topic, I don't want to spoil the exam for you, but when you come across it I would recommend thoroughly reading the examiners report and seeing how this is different to the types of conclusions you usually write in class
