I'm pretty sure i messed up because i talked about how at Bluewater they transformed the quarry into a shopping centre and planted trees and created ponds, everyone i know has done Hope so i just hope what I've said is at least valid to the examiner

For the labeling characteristics of a meander, would labeling bluff lines get a mark?? Thanks
I'd say so, yes. Almost certainly so if you described and explained it in more detail.

For the last coastal question I ran out of time and so only spoke about 3 social impacts and 1 political impact. Would this push me into level 2 or can I still access level 3 if my points are developed?

What did people write for the Alps question if you did the Restless Earth section of the exam.
I wrote about the following:

HEP
Railway channels being built to aid transport connections etc
The alpaca - to transport goods (figured that I'd just include them because they were there in the diagram and therefore had nothing to lose)
Terraces being built, to even out ground and to provide fertile soils

Did anyone understand the 'draw a plan of the meander' question!? I just drew out a birds-eye-view of the meander and labeled it (erosion, deposition, lateral erosion etc) - do you think that'll be okay?

Is it wrong to say the first figure for the alps question was used to create steps in the mountain for easier access

The main purpose of 'terraces' is to provide flat, fertile land for farming. I wouldn't stress it though, if you made other points you'll be fine

I am fairly confident with the quality of my answer, I just fear that because my last paragraph only explored one point, I can't access the top grade. I know some mark schemes require at least two points from each topic mentioned in the title. Do you think this will be the case on this question?

I found two:

1) The moving of people from the Maldives to another country by 2100 puts political pressure on these countries

2) The Maldives may not be able to repay japan from the £50 million they gave the Maldives. This is because of the fact that their industries are declining. This could cause conflict between countries
