    Yeah, it definitely wasn't my best exam! I did the tectonics 40 marker and most people in my class had written completely different essays - I focused on the wealth of an area being an issue with how well it can recover or how badly it is affected by certain hazards, but some people didn't even mention that kind of thing I thought the essay question was kind of vague so I think that's why everyone wrote different things. What about you? Which topics did you do?
    I studied Tectonics, Weather, World Cities and Development & Globalisation, but I couldn't get my head around Weather so in the exam I pretty much HAD to drop it cause I didn't revise it!
    I did the Tectonics and World Cities structured questions and the Development essay but I don't think I argued both ways with it, and my "case studies" weren't really case studies, I made them up!
    It sounds like you were about right to be honest! I'd say the main thing about recovering from hazards is whether it's an LEDC or MEDC!
    Which structured questions did you do?

    I always find Unit 2 harder than the A2 papers, it's so strange, I do better on the A2 ones as well, I think it's the multiple choice that lets me down
    Is it? I've been told aqa econ gets so hard at A2 I'm unsure whether to take it next year and I'm not the best at writing exams, prefer calculation or chem type questions.
    I'm so worried about all the crosses I had to put on my objective test though because I put the right answer but I have crosses where I put in the wrong answers
