    I think that the grade boundaries will be similar to 2014 with only a slight increase with the D-B grade boundaries

    A*49
    A 43
    B 36

    On ice on the land were we supposed to use a case study for the Avalanche question? Very confused as it didn't specifically state and had a previous 4 marker on the case study

    Discussion:
    How did everyone find that exam?
    Grade boundaries?
    Questions (especially descriptive questions)?
    I did
    Restless Earth
    Living world
    &a Coastal zone

    Restless earn was ridiculously easy finished that in about 20 mins
    The living world was casual as expected some difficult word question and for the 8 marker had to include 2 case studies.
    For the coastal zone found it a bit uneasy some weird question but all in all i found it very well as the question were mostly on geographic knowledge and a couple of aplliance questions but we're very easy.
    I Think the grade boundaries will stay the same or fluctuate down because some people found it very difficult.



    I think it really depended on what you revise e.g I revised dessert and fold mountain case studies in lesson and those were both 8 markers but the third was harder.




    Wonder how the human papers gonna be need to do more revision for that

    I did weather and climate, living world and water on the land, and thought I got really lucky on the questions, apart from the weather and climate 8 marker, which I thought was a bit weird...
    I found the weather and climate 8 marker weird too! What did you write for it because a lot of people I've spoken to think they have done it wrong

    Also.... for fold mountains question:

    I put that they occur at destructive and collision. Collision due to the two continental plates colliding and material in-between to form fold mountains bilaterally. And at destructive plat boundary unilaterally due to continental being crumpled

    What did everyone else put??????
    I put exactly that, sure it is correct.

    I said sediment builds up in the geosynclines in the land, then that two continental plates because they have a similar density collide and one doesn't subduct under the other so they crumple up, crumpling up the sediment with anticlines and synclines which produces fold mountains, then I gave an example of The Andes

    abondance, charmonix, galtur, something like that, I did galtur
    edit: oops didn't read ur Q properly, pretty sure you do, it was 'describe the effects of an avalanche' so it'd be in your best instincts to include a case study to replicate the effects, however if you didn't use one you could still get like 6/8 marks, you just can't achieve level 3 because you've not used any specific data which is what they ask for in the mark scheme. Unless it's a question on processes or something where you just need to use a figure (although you should use a case study with a figure) then you should always use a case study
