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.
yes i thought it was trick since the next question was on constructive too aha

I saw a few little dots out in the sea so labelled them as stacks or stumps and I also did 1,5,7 and found it a very good paper

exactly the same with me don't worry, you have human and your controlled assessment too
Really hoping so... thing is, I can never tell how I've done it geography bc the mark scheme is so weird... hoping this stress is just unnecessary but I highly doubt it...

Pretty sure that one was destructive as a high crest is a feature of a destructive wave, as is a high wave energy.

I reckon the grade boundaries will be sky high.

A* - 58
A - 50
B - 43
C - 35

Everyone found it fairly straightforward.
No way. 50 at the most, some people actually found it hard. I found last year's paper easier and an A* was 46

i put destructive too
There was a lot of deposition and the reason the crest is so high is because of the artificial barricade, rather than a natural one - it wasn't that tall too.

I wouldn't beat yourself up about it as most of the paper was easy, so although you may have shed marks here, I bet you picked them back up later on

oh
i said the crest was tall so it appeared to have a strong swash up the coast and it was a tall wave in comparison to its width

also, i didn't know if aqa were being tricks-y by putting another question about constructive waves after it, which is another reason I put destructive

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
That one was really hard.

you just quelled your own doubts, constructive waves have a powerful swash, destructive have a powerful BACKswash and yh i think AQA were trying to trick

In the coasts section what did you put for "describe the wave" 😂
When I saw that question I was genuinely like 'naaa are you having a laugh' 😂
