    yeah same they were really nice with the questions this time i thought, i struggled quite a bit on the Salford housing scheme question tho
    yeah, that's question I also struggled with. I left it till the end and came back to it and just put something down! I think I wrote about how the model image shows a kitchen above a living which reduces space and therefore increases the amount of housing/rooms an area/house has.

    It was a picture of an African woman and you had to annotate the figure as to why her having a stove (not a proper oven) would increase her quality of life. I feel like it was in the development gap though, can't remember it being in urbanisation
    That question was a pisstake
    I said "No fire used,so no carbon dioxide or monoxide" and "Her legs are being used,so it shows exercise" lol,...Crap question
    Paper was decent.I was crapping myself cuz i thought i did wrong case studies.I remember for each case study i spent time thinking "Which one".Luckily i picked the right one(discussed all with my teacher).For e.g last question said tropic area tourism..I did kenya..but i thought "Lets see if i could do Tataqura Lodge or EPping forrest".Luckily Kenya was right.So drained from that exam LOL

    Lol. I labeled things like Rejuvination and Decline as well as Involvement/Development stage. One of us is wrong...
    **** lmao, i thought the questions were for reasons for the number of tourists to the uk? since tourism has been around a lot longer than since 1992 i think i might be right but idk for sure tho

    what do you think grade boundaries are likely to be?
    wasn't a hard paper, but probably around 64 like usual because people struggle with human more, I wouldn't be surprised with them being higher though

    People who did tourism, what did you put for the annotating the graph of tourism change??
    It was a very tricky question.

    I put when the graph went down like wars and natural disasters and when it increased I put improvements in technology, more places opening up, more disposable income and improvements in transport but not sure if thats right

    I didn't mind it. I said the heat from the stove means she's able to sterilise water to prevent cholera/typhoid as well as cleaning her clothes, I annotated the children in the background saying infant mortality would be decreased because food is cooked / more sanitation, I said famine/starvation would be reduced because they are able to cook food and drink cleaner water meaning lower death rates and a start up of development, I said learning to cook using the stove would develop skills, the stove could provide warmth if needed

    I probably read the question wrong. I had 2 exams today so was quite stressful.

    I did Population, Globalisation and Tourism. Globalisation was by far the hardest of the three. All together, Physical Geography is much easier than Human Geography.
    i did exactly the same, did you do ecotourism or mass tourism for the last 8 marker, and which case study for whichever one you did? i did kenya as mass tourism and i talked about trying to incorporate eco tourism to protect the wildlife and stuff I'm not sure if it's right

    I did Kenya but did not talk about any ecotourism.

    Yeah but 3 marks is the difference between grades. I messed up in OCR computing today as well. It was a stupid mistake where I added 1's and 0's wrong...

    i talked about the 2005 london bombings, 9/11 in 2001, and the 2008 recession. i added more disposable income to the increase in tourism in 1992 i think it was but that bit was a guess. it was an odd question i agree

    If on population, when it asked "what is meant by exponential population growth" I put:

    As the population gets bigger, the rate of its growth increases

    Will I get the marks?
