    It wasn't too bad, but I may have dropped around 10 marks maybe? How was it for you?
    I barely used Case Studies expect for the first question describing the movement of plate boundaries to cause a volcanic eruption and on the question to describe the effects of tropical storms I said Hurricane Katrina caused a 12-18ft storm surge...that's about it. Did you use any?

    I thought the exam went well. Were you told to amend a question before the exam, in my school everyone took the opportunity to read through the questions in advance

    lol true, I really want to get an A* in geography.
    I got 58/60 in the controlled assessment so I have a chance.
    But tourism has always been my weakest topic, perhaps because we learnt it in just 4 weeks.

    Wow, well done!
    My advice would be to look at the specification and tick off all the topics you know while going through it. Is your exam this Friday?
    Good Luck!

    Half exercise book, half text book
    I'm really worried, I only did an hour of revision today and still have 4 topics to go over as well as everything else
