    Ive read on threads and earlier on in this one that the GB for a C should stay the same as last years or either go up/down a mark. They're only people's predictions so don't shoot the messenger 😂
    Thanks XD I want them to go down to 10 - 5 on each paper. I think I would stand a better chance then ;-)

    I'm getting so nervous now. All my friends don't seem to care they're all like "Oh well lol idc if i fail i fail it won't affect me" (actual words ) and I'm just like How? How do you not feel scared? How can you just go "Oh well" and just flick it off your shoulder? They didn't really revise to the last minute anyway so what can I expect?

    Some of the 8 mark questions were really odd, but okay. I liked the second paper better. How did you find them?
    All I remember from them is that they were odd.
    And a lot of people got confused over the correct case studies to use.

    I think I preferred the 1st paper better but everyone in my class (and apparently school) seems to prefer Physical to human.

    What grade are you hoping for?

    There was a huge debate as to whether the case study for the tourism topic was Ecotourism or Mass tourism, i.e. Kenya or Tartaquara lodge (or something similar). I think as long as you wrote about an area in the tropics and you answered the question, you should be ok. P.S. if people don't already know: Kenya IS in the tropics as is MOST of brazil therefore both SHOULD be acceptable (Kenya + Tartaquara lodge).

    67110544[/url]]Don't suppose anyone can take a guess at what the grade boundary will be for a C in maths. Edexcel maths (combined total) I'm thinking about 65 like last year that's the highest it's been cant believe they would put it any higher??

    For some reason 59-62 comes into my head for a C and 97-99 for a B

    I know, we went on a hunt for my geography teacher after the exam to check.
    I did the Ecotourism one (I feel like I didn't revise Kenya,). ~
    Everyone had one or the other apart from one person (I can't remember what he put, but it was really really evidently wrong).

    This was kind of reassuring (like the stuff on retaking an exam, and all the different options available)
