    predictions please!
    (Original post by ameliaval)
    has anyone got any predictions based on past papers?
    (Original post by R2-D2)
    I'm quite scared about this exam... I done the 2014/2015 papers for practice and judging by those, I think this year might be difficult Though, from the year 2013 down, the papers were actually quite easy!!! It was only until 2014, the questions just became increasingly harder in my opinion..

    Best of luck to everyone tomorrow!

    Biomes eg rainforest
    Coastal retreat case study
    Ermm management methods?
    Structure of a volcanoe

    if your controlled assessment is on Coasts, does this mean coasts definitely won't come up in the SDME tomorrow?

    A washland is an area of land next to a river which is deliberately flooded when the river is high, to avoid flooding in residential or important agricultural areas.

    Advanatges include it provides a low cost and natural solution to delaying flood peaks and they create new habitats for wildlife with minimal impacts on the surrounding area. It provides potential wetland sites for birds and plants and the deposited silt mayenrich the soil,subsequently turningthe area intoagricultural land.

    Disadvantages is that the land cannot be built on.

    Hope this helps!

    I know, I had two exams today, literature and R.E. I think it may be a good idea for you to call it a day and rest and then in the morning you can revise as the exam is in the afternoon.

    e.g. For a named volcanic eruption event, outline the primary and secondary impacts.

    Example:

    Named example: Soufriere Hills volcanic eruption, Montserrat 1995-1997.
    For the volcanic eruption that occurred at the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat between 1995 and 1997 there were many primary and secondary impacts. The volcano is a composite volcano, meaning the lava erupted was viscous and explosive and there was a pyroclastic flow.
    The primary impacts were that 2/3 of the island was covered in volcanic ash and 23 people were killed as a result of volcanic ash and pyroclastic flow. Also, ½ of the island migrated to the North and the capital Plymouth was left as a ghost town. In addition, ports and airports closed and hospitals and schools were destroyed.
    The secondary impacts were that people endured harsh living conditions in the north. Also, ports and airports remained closed and tourism declined, with a few people only visiting to see the volcano. In addition, many people emigrated and the population declined by 8,000 from 12,000 to 4,000. Finally, a positive impact was that the volcanic ash improved the soil fertility, which increased the farmland productivity.


    Hope this helps, good luck for tomorrow!

    ty.... needed some secondary impacts tbh

    I had 2 exams (English lit and RS) today and wrote 20 pages in total! And now my hand is covered in blisters. I have no motivation to revise for this exam so I am just staring at my revision guide and winging it, and if it goes badly, I am just going to pretend I never took geography.
