    Parks? Primary schools? Powerleague? and very little open space; then pubs, social clubs and forests for rural. That was the sort of question that you could make the answer up to.
    Nope, we definitely did not learn this in class

    Pissed off I missed the very first question about labeling the picture >
    Apart from that the paper went okay although the 15 marker for the food supply was a bit ambiguous ( I wrote about organic and locally produced food)
    I WROTE THAT ASWELL.

    I just did the River Quaggy and Three Gorges comparing them together. I mentioned the costs, displacement, environmental impact and benefits amongst a few other points. Is that similar to what you did?

    (I sort of quadrupled the cost of the Three Gorges dam - I hope they don't penalise me)
    Oh my God I feel like such an idiot. My teacher gave me a sheet on those two just last Friday (yeah we didn't finish the syllabus until the last day of school :rolleyes:). And I just read through it but didn't learn it! Oh kicking myself now I talked about York and Los Angeles. Oh I want to slap myself ughhhh.

    Neither did we. I saw what they did with the first question and just made up stuff; hopefully it was enough.

    Good luck to you for unit 2.

    I wrote a bit about Antarctica and and the innuit's, does that mean I have lost 15 marks and I thought it was difficult to get 15 marks out of waterfalls. I understand the health question.

    My mate said to me before the exam "I bet the DTM will come up as the 15marker"

    I rubbished it and BAM, it turns up! The only question which I struggled with majorly was the Transport one, there I was 3 hours before the exam revising for the use of renewable and nucleur power!

    You can still get an A even with messing up one question.

    Good luck on Tuesday

    I actually think it went quite alright for me.

    Deserts really ****ed me over though. The 15 marker was about a desertification case study I didn't even revise (Sahel), I revised the Southern Spain one.

    Population and Health was quite easy. Large parts of it were source-based, so that was cool, although I wasn't expecting a DTM 15 marker.

    Rivers went well because I kind of assumed that soft engineering and waterfalls would come up. xD

    I found the majority of it was common sense, a lot of it I just made up on the spot, and I found I needed hardly any case studies, which was good as I only knew a small number. I'm pretty sure that I'll get full UMS for it

    ok, who on earth put those articles into the exam?! did anyone feel like they were regurgitating the articles?
    the exam wasn't easy, but it wasn't hard.. the whole layout was completely wrong, i mean 4 marks for sticking some labels on a picture, what is this?!
    and that population question on two settlements we've studied and the provisions available, don't quite remember studying the provisions in place! :mad:
