    Of course I'd love lower.. Definitely I think the q asking to describe the trend with work I didnt write enough for six marks, but oh well if everything else goes well!

    haha same or maybe even an A on both? What topics did you do? I thought in particular population was fairly straight forward
    I think I did ok on that question....I probably messed up on the question about house prices :/ I've probably dropped a few marks there

    Hahaha yeah that's what I want. In all my past papers I've been averaging 80% on paper 1 so hopefully, if all is well, I'll get that in the actual one!
    I did rivers, population, coasts and energy you?
    Yeah population was pretty straightforward...I think I rushed the 15 marker though (the only one I felt I didn't write enough for!)

    Did anyone else find it harder than last years?
    Remember perception is often very different from reality. Last year I came out of a different exam, thought I'd smashed it, and got a C.

    Came out of another one, thought it was ok (e.g. low B) and got a high A.

    So don't worry too much about it.

    Ah well as you said were bound to drop marks somewhere! The questions were interesting, not really what I was expecting

    Hahaha good luck, hopefully! Thats a good average, I think on that paper especially it is doable, but I hate how its a minute a mark so much pressure to write fast
    Awesome I did rivers, population, coasts and health - which I think is the 15 I messed up on as it was last think I did and might not have made sense Im sure the examiners knew what I meant...

    Thanx and hopefully you'll get A's on both the papers too
    Same here...it puts you under soo much pressure!
    Hahahah that was me on the population question....I was so pressed for time I literally just wrote it as it came in my head! Sounded like a right mess oh well :P

    Haha yeah as soon as I saw that OS map I moved on to the next question, I hate those sort of questions! But my heart lit up at standard deviation so all is good
    Thanks I really hope so my teacher has very high expectations... saying I should be deciding on a degree in it ect, "no time like the present" his famous words
    Oooo i think everyone had that one question, and to be fair sometimes those types if answers are the best ones

    I'm really confused about what 2 mark line drawing question people missed out? I know you had to draw 2 trip lines on the 2 separate maps on the double page thing but I don't understand how people missed them because they were the only thing on that double spread? Unless I missed something else

    Did you answer every or almost every question?

    Are the answers people have mentioned in here vaguely similar to yours?

    If so I'm sure you've passed, if not a high pass!

    In Biology AS I resat a module after originally getting an E. Guess what I got? An A, and a high one at that.

    Maybe their pages got stuck together or they thought the maps were for answering the next question?
