    For the hot arid region i stated the following:

    That solar panels have been used to take advantage of the large amount of sunlight and convert this into electricity.

    For the second mark i wrote that the house had an overhang to sustain the place of shade in the house keeping that area cool for the inhabitants of the house.

    What did you write?

    I've just looked it up on the specification and I think I've gotten a bit confused. As it said wide ranging and I've never been taught anything about holistic management, me and my friends thought you just had to talk about hard and soft defences as this would be a wide range. Apparently holistic magaement is a whole different thing. Sorry about that!
    hollistic management was tough! I said it was a range of methods used along a wide stretch of coast. I gave the north norfolk example. Only get 3 marks max YOLO

    What did you write about, 'cause that was just one example, you could have approached it a few ways
    I wrote about north norfolk, how in different areas they use different methods of engineering! hopefully there should be like a wide range of answers to be accepted
