I said how I analysed my results and presented them in tables and stuff, but it didn't actually say to mention the conclusions of the fieldwork, so i didn't write about them :/

It was such a bad question, I mentioned pie charts/maps with different colour/numerical averages/comparative tables/picture annotation etc...

i hope the examiner understands how difficult it was to analyse and present the answer!!

Didn't go as well as I wanted it to, I did extreme weather and rebranding but didn't put the cross in the box to show the examiner what questions I chose:banghead:. Analysis threw me completely, looking back on it I see that it would have been better talking about what conclusions my analysis lead me to rather than saying I used a swot analysis:afraid:
oh crap... i didn't even realise i hadn't marked what questions i did until reading this! i'm an actual idiot! anyway, i did the same two as you and i was thrown off by the analysis question too. my teach told me that definitely wouldn't come up..... pfffttt! x

Rebranding can be used as a tool or catalyst to improve quality of
places. Sustainability might link to economic, social and
environmental aspects of rebranding. There are a range of linked
ideas here. Inward investment attracting other businesses etc and
positive spirals. Perhaps important is the idea of longer-term success.
Credit definition of sustainability in the context of rebranding.

Urban
• Employment opportunities
close to communities,
reducing transport footprint
• Preservation of heritage and
culture
• Innovative energy efficient
design
Rural
• Economically viable providing
a range of employment
opportunities
• Limited use of artificial
chemicals in any production
methods (ideally organic);
local food etc.


One of the issues with rebranding is to what extent schemes actually
benefit all communities / groups / players, especially those that are
the most deprived or have least say.

Places can be urban or rural, and at a range of scales, e.g. regional to
local.
Credit discussion of top-down, bottom-up and partnership
approaches.

WAS A QUESTION FROM JANUARY 2012

i found it better than unit 1 but the timing was hard.I found the 10 marks harder than before apart from the last 10 mark on sustainabilty.The 15 mark with rebranding was quite difficult as well- i talked about success a bit as well as the presentation and stuff.Any idea on the grade boundaries?
Same, found it much better than Unit 1, but ahhh the timing is appaling! Why don't they give us 1 hour 30 minutes! :mad:

Guys I'm confused about the Rebranding 15 marker! I didn't mention successes or any evaluation of my results as I took it as how my results were analysed and presented so combined the two and by analysis I just said I made detailed annotations to a picture I didn't think it was actually asking for an analysis of the results... oops but then I made up some good stuff about presentation how I layered it onto a GIS map and created a written report and fancy stuff like that ;D

44 is way to low for an A and the exam was pretty decent. The lowest it's ever been for an A is 48

so probably be like

48=A

42=B

37=c

32=D

28=E

Could have mentioned:
  • Job's creation
  • Transport/Infrastructure
  • Legacy-social improvement e.g. education/crime


I wrote about Stratford as it had all 3 and Curitiba for transport.
