    What did people write about for two contrasting coastal defences??
    i wrote about hard engineering-groynes and soft engineering-beach nourishment, but then wasnt sure if it meant managed retreat or advance the line so wrote about that too, think i completely messed that one up

    I thought that it was okay, the first question on the crowded coasts side was weird and I basically wrote a load of crap. However I do have a very serious question, does it matter if I didn't cross the section i completed? I know I crossed the crowded coasts section but I'm worried I didnt for the rebranding places.
    I don't think it matters as long as you only did two sections

    Yeah I thought that was what it meant but I wasn't taught a soft engineering example so I just did managed retreat and hold the line which I think was completely wrong😭 I really messed up

    hopefully we will pick up some marks for it, luckily i'm resitting it so have a C in unit 2 to fall back on if i fail it this year

    I did exactly the same defences

    Although, as far as I know, managed retreat and advance the line are coastal defence strategies.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but I think you would use those 2 (along with 'hold the line' and 'do nothing') if a question asked about defence strategies instead of defences. :dong:

    That aside what did people mention on the first 10marker to do with competition causing pressure...

    No managed retreat is a coastal defence For soft engineering, the strategy is called retreating the line

    Does anyone reckon I'll be okay if I wrote about two contrasting hard engineering strategies?

    I did Mappleton's rock groynes and the positives and negatives (cost, effectiveness, long-lasting etc.) and Withernsea's recurved sea wall with the same sort of development.

    For my two fieldwork and research questions, I used two different places to say where I went to conduct my investigation, does that matter?

    They keyword would be contrasting, i think you misinterpreted it, soft engineering and hard are complete opposites, most opposite than sea walls and groynes which are both catergorised under hard. Im sure the examiner will be sympathetic and award for you for talking about hard engineering but maybe not the other 50% awarded for the contrasting soft

    I wrote about salt marshes as a soft engineering technique as the plants called cordigrass trap the sediment. Have I messed that up?

    MY school found it atrocious.

    And the dumb q about culture. We only learnt one case study so I was screwed when I saw it said examples

    Also pressures of what like wth
    ugh officially failed both geo papers and wasted so much time on it.
    Loool

    I made one up about a library in birmingham built on brownfield site and how it attracted student accommodation to the area. Therefore, attracting bars, shops etc and investment into the area.

    I had rural culture and heritage stuff but no urban one's.......
