I had no idea what that question was on about, it was only 2 marks though? I ended up making something up about how some people believe humans aren't responsible for climate change because it happens anyway whereas others believe we should be reducing our greenhouse emissions to reduce climate change... I'm not sure if that's what it meant though but it was only 2 marks so lets hope the rest of it was okay
I hope that I got an A but after re-thinking my answers I'm not sure that'll be the case..

We actually went over this question just before the exam. I said that some people don't believe in climate change because it's fluctuated since the last ice age. I think you could've said just an argument for or against climate change

Hopefully they'll lower the grade boundaries, plus there's always coursework which may bring up the grade a little

For the 9 marker did everyone just state how they managed things and the good and bad things about their management?

I literally wrote nothing... All I wrote was texaco gave 40 million to clean up and they set up a biological reserve and that in papa New Guinea they set up ecotourism. I had no idea!

Examine contrasting methods of managing rainforests in which recourses are extracted.

not exactly but it was 100% examining contrasting managements of rainforests

I got very similar answers to you which makes me feel a little better!! Thanks (I got 2.5 for the distance but I'm sure there'll be a tolerance )

Census could be outdated as people may be born/have died between when the census is done and when the data is collected and presented. Well idk I guessed it

By attitude I figured they said a response because changing your "behaviour". Behaviour can be changed by the decreased dependency on cars for travelling
