Question Title

* 1. We are a group of A Level Psychology students working in the UK. We are very grateful to you for volunteering to complete this survey, which is part of our social psychology topic. This survey is for our exam, so please try to answer the questions as honestly as you can.

The survey is completely confidential and you will not be asked for your name at any point. Also be reassured that your teacher will not be able to see your answers, as they come directly to us. If you wish to drop out any point, please feel free to do - all your answers are valuable to us whether you complete all the questions or not.  

We know that answering open questions can sometimes take a bit longer than multiple choice, but we are really very grateful for your answers to these questions and we would really appreciate it if you could try to write at least 140 characters for these answers (that's only as much as a tweet on twitter!)

We will let you know what our findings are in due course and will delete all data once we have completed our analysis. If you have any questions please feel free to email us at a.wood@pgs.org.uk.

I am aged 16 or over and have read all information above.
