    I was so confused with that question, but I labelled different parts, for example when tourism rose , I said it was development, like I used parts of the butler model..did anyone else do that?
    I struggled with that one aswell, I think I put something about cheaper holidays and travel....

    No, that was an awful 8 marker. I just expanded on what the three people said.

    I didn't read the question to begin with and just drew a weird version of the butler model.
    Then when I realised that I should probably read the question before attempting it, I used the butler model, but my annotations included an explanation e.g. recession, 7/7 bombings, Olympics.
    Mine was probably ridiculously wrong but meh.

    The annotating the graph question was nothing to do with the butler model you just had to put common sense reasons but they will probably credit you for using the terms like recession and development with a reason

    I don't think they'll be that high love, no need to go scaring people xxx

    The highest I've seen for an A* is 67 so far so I'm not too sure about you're predictions... However I guess there is a chance!

    We'll just have to wait and see

    That's based on how easy everyone found the paper. 67/84 is only 80%? Seems a bit low. AQA have said in their private podcasts that they're set to increase grade boundaries. (Not that I've got an A* myself).

    I've heard a lot of mixed reviews...

    Yeah it was back in 2013 as well! After that it was around 65. Oh I never knew that, I guess we'll just have to wait till results day ;D

    I did the exact same case studies as you.
    We asked the head of Geography in my school and he said either Kenya or ecotourism (e.g. Tataquara lodge).
    I missed out the u in Tataquara each time I wrote it so I'm going to get stupid marks deducted from it for SPAG

    If on population, when it asked "what is meant by exponential population growth" I put:

    As the population gets bigger, the rate of its growth increases

    Will I get the marks?

    I think you will. I wrote exponential growth is when the population keeps increasing.will i get a mark for that?
