    WAIT MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES IS HARD/SOFT ENGINEERING RIGHT???
    Didn't that come up last year?
    My friend is retaking AS this year and apparently hard/soft came up last year....
    I'm retaking and last year it was examining the success of two types of coastal management (i.e hard v soft) so shouldn't come up this year.

    You can look at last year's papers on the Edexcel website:

    No it wasn't. It was assess the need to rebrand. Not the schemes. You may not get any marks if you discussed the schemes/strategies

    Boscombe is urban. I went there for my fieldwork and research.
    I haven't heard of that '10,000 urban area classification before' - How does a population of 10,000 make an area urban? There are many rural areas with populations larger than this. I think an urban area is better classified by population density and physical characteristics.

    I thought the question said "Using examples, Identify an area that WAS in need of rebranding".
    I talked about Birmingham, but I'm now starting to think about why I wrote that.

    I thought it was quite easy except for the first question in Crowded coasts about flooding. I was really surprised to see that the Rebranding fieldwork question was simple and a repeat to what they've asked in a previous year. I only had 3 minutes to check over my work though.

    Because it was in need of rebranding. If it was in need of rebranding, then rebranding has already occurred, and therefore, won't you need to talk about a place that was in need of rebranding and has undergone rebranding.
    Hence the emphasis on the "was".

    What? No, it is irrelevant if the rebranding has actually taken place or not. You are not meant to be talking about the actual rebrand anyway.

    You probably wouldn't have studied an area if it hadn't had a need, strategies and an outcome.
