    What essay did you do ?
    I did arid and that was poorly worded, with ocr, you can never clearly work out what they are actually asking from you

    I did coasts - and it said 'explain how the needs for management of development varies' ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! So idk about your case studies, but I started writing about Holderness coastline and Fawley power station at Easington, then the coastal road at Ventnoor, and then with 5 mins to spare i thought about some we had done for managing conflict and thought oh sh*t is it that instead?! But the 9 marker was the same thing - conflicts?!

    I did the coasts one so I can't help you there! Although I think both essays could have been misinterpreted (because the coasts is effectively the same as rivers). I wasn't sure whether to use my coastal management case studies (which I did) and then with 5 mins to spare was panicking if i should have used my conflict ones?! It was about need for management?! But i thought the conflicts was the same as the coasts short 9 marker?!

    If only we did AQA, there would have been a much larger discussion and possibly unofficial mark scheme

    Why did I not even think of that. Looks like re-sit could be an option

    I used ganges and southern england for case studies examples. I said how location and the development of the country would effect which flood management methods would be best! What did you write about?

    I wrote about how the management of flooding varies depending on the locations economic value, importance and the amount of people exposed if flooding was to occur. If these factors were high then the need for management and flood defences would be quite high. The case studies I used were the three gorges dam and the Thames.

    Not sure if I did it correctly though

    I did the river essay and I wrote about Tees Basin - Yarm Flood Defense Scheme to protect the residential, Ganges basin - about embankments as they need to protect the urban area as it's expensive to pay insurance and Nile basin about the dam to control water levels so it doesn't flood does this even make sense what am saying haha?
