Lincoln is north of London slightly, but actually not THAT far away, I'd say maybe 80 miles or something (okay that's quite far but it's not like i'm in scotland)!

Why are you a bit ughh?

I actually was going to answer the Energy section for the 'fun' of it, I had gotten to health and knew I'd failed already and when I was looking through past papers, Energy seemed so much easier to me and I knew most stuff from GCSE but then in the exam I thought it might not be such a good idea.

Skills.... yeh... well I do A-level maths so it should be OK just incase like standard deviation comes up but all the other stuff on coursework I will be clueless. My teacher actually banned us from doing the coursework because it was ''stupid and a waste of time'' so how I am meant to answer the questions I don't know.


What did everyone put for the tobacco question??

something about BAT's BEST programme for sourcing their tobacco (**** knows why) and also I spoke about BAT not wanting to create new smokers, but simply increase their market share, so they wouldn't have such a negative impact on health.

I haven't even heard of BAT. My teacher 'didn't have time' to go over it so I was told to watch a video by another teacher. 'Video' is a bit vague don't you think when your not given a title or link or anything :P

ETA: I meant teacher didnt have time to go over Tobacco, not BAT, or I would have heard of it

British american tobacco (: they have 52 factories in 44 countries, they produce 689 billion cigarettes a year and they are more dependent on markets with low profit margins but large numbers of people, such as china, where they're attempting to smuggle their products in order to create a want for their product while simultaneously softening up chinese officials through things such as a $300,000 donation to the reconstruction of the Haizhou bridge. They want to get in on chinese markets but 1300 billion cigarettes a year are smoked in china! etc etc.

It's not that we have a problem with 15 mark answers (my other 3 subjects are essay based, RS, philosophy and critical thinking [sorta essay based]). Everyone found the rivers one good. It's just the way they phrased the majority of this paper was ridiculous, and there were so many better questions they could have asked to allow us to demonstrate our knowledge. They could have removed ambiguity by saying ' effects of an ageing and youthful population '.
Dude, I was agreeing with the fact AQA are **** at this as far as I'm aware!

But anyway, good luck with the other one/rest.

not sure if everyones seen this:

another thread from this exam
http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1277475

i hated this exam too, i revised well but the questions and how they were phrased made the paper horrible, especially the population 15 mark question! that was a nightmare.

praying for low grade boundaries, really need an A in this exam, and i'm not dreading the skills paper!!

With the 15 marker population question my class went through a past question on population change that was a bit ambiguous so we looked at the mark scheme; they said they would accept answers directed towards increasing/decreasing population and effects as well as youthful/ageing population and effects.

So hopefully the board will take into account the ambiguity of the question? My mum's my geography teacher and she said that the examiners always 'go with the student' if what the have written has interpreted the question differently but is still correct.

I'm praying this is right anyway :s ....

Why are you telling me this now? :p: Not much I can do now.

I do Maths, Chemistry and Business and this is by far my hardest a-level. Well Chemistry is dire but this is the one I always do the crappest in. It wasn't even really this exam. I find the whole subject in general hard, at A-level I mean. I think its too big and too much to each topic.
