    Not gonna lie to you all. That post regarding the JAN2013 paper and only being able to talk about city centres breaks my heart </3
    It's actually so tragic! Whats more annoying is that I thought about writing a city centre but I couldn't think of any impacts.

    I thought they're called batholiths?
    Yeah they are, there are batholiths and I think the other is called laccoliths but I spelt them latholiths

    batholiths, laccolith and loppoliths are all different features
    do you reckon they'll accept latholiths as laccoliths?

    Do you think it matters if I didn't include any examples or case studies in the urban decline question?

    Did anyone do the ecosystems essay? And if so what did you talk about? I'm a little concerned right now...
    My essay was pretty much:

    > Intro, defining terms etc, how sustainability and human development were linked
    > Examples of where it is not sustainable - eg. Serengeti (poaching, farming, population pressure etc) and the Coral Reef in Australia and Palau
    > Examples of where management has meant it can be sustainable eg. Heron Island in Australia, Serengeti management
    > Conclusion!

    I think I waffled a bit unfortunately but hopefully it was okay! What about you?

    8 markers don't require a lot of case study information but they do require some as evidence to back up your knowledge. For example, urban decline is characterised by increasing industrial decline such as in Detroit where the automative industry moved to Minneapolis and Boston. However, you can still get 6 or 7 without case study information if you answer is strong

    Oh shiiiitttt..... for the 40 marker tectonics essay.. Were we supposed to talk about the plate tectonic theory etc. and how volcanoes are distributed??? as its part of "knowledge, understanding" part in the question.. I didn't include any of that omg.
    I mainly talked about prediction, planning, management strategies and technology and contrasted it with case studies and other factors. 😭😭
    No, it was nothing about theory of plate tectonics. What you've included sounds amazing 😁 (I may be biased because I've put the same as you haha)

    I only really did a Wal-Mart case study as it was the last thing we learnt in class, and I more or less wrote what was in the revision book for the 10 marker. However, I was able to include some stuff about the Westernisation of cultures in host countries by Coca cola & environmental impacts such as 2009 BP oil spill (I was getting pretty desperate at this point). For the 8 marker I spoke about Wal-mart's HQ in Arkansas and manufacturing industries in China and India and then said it had grown due to cheap labour costs and the low cost of goods for consumers in the USA etc... Those two questions went reasonably well I thought. How did you do for plate tectonics?
    You've given me faith on the D+G 8 marker i did the same case study and explanation so thats good as well. Plate tectonics was lovely all of the questions, very happy i revised hotspots and intrusive landforms and their formation, although my 8 marker characteristics was heavily biased on batholiths. 10 marker did Haiti earthquake, had so much to write about it, had to stop myself and move on! haha

    I literally cannot believe how similar our answers are! I also revised hotspots heavily, wrote a lot about batholiths, and also did Haiti as the 10 marker - which was a dream of a question!

    No I just think you were meant to write about prediction and technology etc. That was the main bit of the question, knowing about plate tectonics wouldn't have affected any recent case studies because we've known about tectonics since the 1950s
