    I think overall, for a geography exam it was pretty hard. Don't sweat it guys, grade boundaries are normally around 70% for an A* so chances are you're gonna get the grade you want

    Sadly a baby boom and a higher life expectancy aren't government strategies to deal with an increasing population
    Of Course they aren't I mean would me of stating those things be justification for using the UK as a place where there is population growth.

    The strategies I mention was Free sex education and family planning.

    Free contraceptives

    Building of homes to deal with a rising population I also wrote some smaller random points

    It depends on the points you covered. If you wrote different points, you will still be able to get 8 marks.

    Heard this alot , but it stated an area in the tropics , not just Kenya, so i did the Galapagos Islands, never learnt Kenya in School,did Jamaica for mass tourism but i felt the Islands are a teopical area, thwyre found on the equator , so i think it would be harsh if Aqa dodnt reocgnise that

    Galapagos is wrong because it said 'well established', also if you look at the specification one of the topics was practically that question...in the mass tourism section

    Completely agree, but didnt learn Kenya, but theres no doubt the Galapogos islands is an area in the tropics. The question asked using an area in the tropics , how does in maintain income whilst reducing negatuve effects. This is what i did, and i think it would be ridiculous if AQA only allowed Kenya as to say Jamaica/ Galapogos Islands arent tropical is terrible

    Even if i dropped around 6 marks here, i still eould be hoping for an A* , i dont think i droped around 14/15 marks on the rest of the paper

    Which one was the right case study for population change, Indonesia or china?

    I think China was the better case study, which is what I did. The Indonesia one is harder to talk about because population growth still happened - it was mainly a policy to try and reduce housing shortages. China policy actually slowed down population growth. But that's just my view...

    I wrote about the kenyan master plan -how they increased the enterance fees to decrease the number of visitors whilest still making the same amount of money. But apparently the kenyan master plan is for both ecotourism and mass tourism .
