For the last question, I talked about a sea wall as an alternative method, is that okay? Also for the 1st question part c I think was about the effect so erosion on people nearby and I said damages or destroyed homes and could affect agricultural land as it destroys crops.

Yeah I feel like I did answer the question, but I remember my teacher saying that there a lot of marks in this question for the structure and correct communication oh well, we'll ace the terminal paper! If I get say 27/40 in this paper, got 52/60 for the enquiry and get 90% in the terminal paper would that be an A*?
I doubt it, but it is possible.

I am not sure why people are suggesting sea wall or beach replenishment...
You can not put sand in a harbour 😂 I put gabions on the cliff either side, and re-enforced concrete for the harbour wall.

what is the maximum mark you can get on the last question if you didn't give an alternate option?

Around 10 or 11 I think - considering you did well in the other bullet points

Although option 3 was similar to managed retreat, there was no reference to relocating citizens. Therefore managed retreat could also have been an alternative, as long as you've explained it well.

I guess so but the problem was very harsh, destructive waves so mangroves wouldn't do much

I doubt it, but it is possible.
Is it weighted in a way that you have to get an A* in each component, or can you make up for it in other parts, say the terminal paper as that is worth 50% of the marks?

I messed up the last point big time. I talked about leaving the harbour where it is and essentially abandoning it to erode, and building a new one in a more protected area of the coast. I realise this is utter rubbish, but I think I managed to pass it off as sustainable by explaining how the new one would need less maintenance as it would be less exposed to the elements, and the tourist activities brought by the harbour would be protected (I.e. Scuba diving). I said the people in Mullion could be relocated as only a few live in the cove, and either way they would still be protected for 20-50 years as the harbour broke down. I fleshed it out a bit more, but does anyone else think this could be reasonable or am I barking up the wrong (Christmas) tree?

you can certainly make up for units, eg. A*A*A = (usually) A*
but it goes more on marks than component grade.
eg.
100 (A*) + 100 (A*) + 70 (B) = 270 (A*) so A*A*B = A*
but...
90 (A*) + 90 (A*) + 80 (A) = 260 (A) so A*A*A = A
