    Yeah, using case studies and examples helps you gain a lot of marks! Another tip (which you probably already know) - make sure to explain any key terms you use (you don't get marks just for using them, you need to say what they mean too)
    That's some great advice! Thanks again

    Ye, I don't understand how we were meant to add in comparison element... I outlined the impacts for Tuvalu and Murray-Darling basin and for the comparison said that the impacts are less severe for Murray-Darling as it was only a 9 year event (2003-2012) and not indefinitely (sea level rise). Hopefully that's good...

    Deforestation & Cattle Grazing/fertiliser use. Included facts for this such as 280 parts per million CO2 use pre-industrial and this increased to 390 ppm recently, said how deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions have contributed to this.

    I wrote about CFCs, increased technology etc, and also about some natural causes ... because it was asking about how important human was, so i talked about how it wasn't the only factor

    I basically said about how human activities (industrialization, modern agriculture and increased car ownership) are increasing anthropogenic emissions (greenhouse gases) leading to climate change because of an increased advanced greenhouse effect, with a diagram of the advanced greenhouse effect

    Wait? it was a compare question?! I thought we just had to talk about the impacts climate change had on two regions?

    For the comparing two impacts of climate change between two regions, I spoke about Alaska and Russia and how rising temperatures are happening in both, but Alaskan impacts are more physical (melting permafrost etc) and Russia is more human (decreased economic performance due to wheat export bans), it's a strange structure but will it be credited?

    Wasn't a compare it was just to state 2 regions, for example I did The Maldives and Banks Island, just state them and use all facts and figures you can for them.

    Yeah that's why I was so worried about my case studies! The application of them to the question was difficult so I'm not sure if my answer is correct 😭

    I'm also pretty certain it wasn't compare. Could be wrong, but I'm sure it just said outline the impacts on 2 different regions.

    Anyone remember what Research Enquiry section was in section 3? I'm retaking G2 on Friday and I really doubt it'll be the same one twice!
