    Oh yeah what was that ?
    I mentioned the cambridge science park and how tertiary and quaternary activities are footloose they dont need raw materials and stuff and I mentioned how they're usually in easily accessible places like e.g. The cambridge science park is near stansted airport and very close to m11 and m25 motorway and its next to cambridge uni to attract university graduates etc.

    i dont get how they didnt put river and urban skills. I first thought I was not seeing clearly and checked the paper like 10 times but nothing! I had to do the skills for topics i never even studied, although some questions were quite similar but still!
    Omg same! We were never taught these skills either !

    I know everyone at my school found it f***ing hard. Nothing like the past questions we'd done, and we were all expecting case study questions as the 9 mark questions - not discussing things!

    what the hell was that. I am genuinely disgusted with everything that was that geography paper. Any one else find it absolutely impossible?

    i really messed up the industrial site question and written "i would want to know the size of the industrial site and also if everyone is doing their job on site" it was weird this exam..besides from that i think i did really well on the 6 mark questions but the 9 mark questions completely threw me off except from the section D one about immigration and emigration

    This paper was a very different one indeed. I was thinking for quite a time before I could writ anything. Didn't expect that rain-forest case study to come up at all. I had to use up the entire 3 hours to do this paper and certainly it wasn't something I expected. However I did find some questions were taken from last year's paper, like the question on the tropical storm characteristics. In Section D I did Fragile Environments so that section was actually fine till they asked about a "specific area" of a tropical rainforest that is being sustained.

    IKR! i think i messed up in that question, i wrote about the ways the rainforest is being managed, i didnt know about how the AREA is being managed. BTW which area were they asking about? i wrote Brazil

    Yeah same here, I wrote Amazon rainforest in Brazil. The textbook did not specify any specific areas in which the rainforest was being managed. It was just the different ways of sustainability that was mentioned.

    I didn't know how to do the rural environment fieldwork, anyone know any possible aims for the fieldwork? I wrote that we could investigate how the growth of the barley plants varies with altitude, but I think that is not correct lol
