    I think the grade boundaries will be similar to 2014 with slight increase of the D-B grade boundaries.

    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.

    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.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure they'd accept goats as well!
