    For the extreme weather management question did you have to write about 2 strategies for the same event?

    I wrote about GM crops for drought and land use management for hurricanes! Really worried I've done it completely wrong now! #I'm an idiot

    I asked my teacher before the exam and he said that if it says 'extreme weather events' in general it is better to talk about more than one weather event rather than one so I talked about a method for drought and then one for flooding. I'm sure it will be fine, well I hope so anyway!

    What was the question again? I'm worried that I've answered it wrong, I wrote about desalination and levees and then commented on the advantages and disadvantages of them

    Did you comment on the advantages and disadvantages of each or have I answered it wrong? 😯

    "Examine the success of 2 different strategies to manage the impacts of an extreme weather event"
    Thanks for putting this up! This question confused me a tad though as it was a little ambiguous - I wasn't sure if we were supposed to talk merely about the successes of some strategies, or if we were supposed to talk about how there were and weren't successes? Does anybody know?

    Personally, I talked about Hurricane Prediction Apps and how the prediction is useful for informing people to prepare, and how the notifications can allow people to be informed more quickly so they have more time to get to safety. I then discussed hard engineering protection against storm surges from tropical cyclones, giving the example of the levees in New Orleans, and saying that whilst they can protect against weaker events there is a risk of a false sense of security in stronger events such as Hurricane Katrina.

    Overall, I thought the exam definitely could have gone better (I did Extreme Weather and Rebranding), but given the questions I'm happy that I made a fair attempt!
