A*-49
A-43
B-37
C-31
D-25

This isn't a point based question though, did you get developed statements (therefore, as a result of, consequently) because you have to get into level 3 (7-8 marks) you only need to make one point as long as you develop it well.
Nah you need to develop your argument and you need maybe 4 points minimum if you look at mark scheme.

I did the Restless Earth, Ice on the Land, and Water on the Land and I found it pretty easy, hope I can get an A as Geography is one of my worst subjects! Hope everyone gets the grades they want

Did anyone else really struggle with the 8 marker on living world on economic opportunities??
I struggled so much on that question , I ended up skipping it and leaving it till the end. I was unsure if they were asking us to compare uses or sustainable management think I probably got 3 marks

i thought it was good restless earth and water were great. The only sticky bit was talking about political impacts of sea level rise in Coasts
I totally agree, I think I messed up that question by choosing the wrong case study but oh well:/ what case study did you use?

For the question about a case study about fold mountains, in the question, it said discuss how people living there are adapted to difficult living styles or w/e. Therefore, I didn't write about HEP, Mining, Tourism and Farming for uses. I had revised adaptations the day before and some points I included were:

-High slopes had infertile soil - therefore, llamas and goats are farmed there
-Consequently, the lower slopes had fertile soil, therefore crops could be grown there
- Limited communications - roads were long and would take ages traveling, therefore, they were adapted to this by building tunnels through the mountains for shortcuts.
-Because they live near mountains and there are hazards such as avalanches - they adapted to this by building large trees to absorb the impact.

So yeah, I think I'm literally the only one who put those down. Either I'm the only one who got that question right, or everyone else got it right and I didn't.......

*ps, in the spec it says candidates should be aware of how people are ADAPTED to living in tough, extreme places*

Well done to everyone nonetheless!

Generally, I found tectonics and water on the land really good.
I found the questions in Ice on the Land a bit tricky and weird though, nonetheless hoping I got an A*!

In the coasts section what did you put for "describe the wave" 😂
The wave was constructive due to the sediment shown deposited on the walkway, it had a high wave crest due to it reaching such a high point along the walkway. Not only this but due to the high volume of spray, we can tell the wave has a high wave energy.
