    Can someone give me the two mark answer for tertiary recovery, completely forgot it! Thought the exam went really well though, bring on unit 4 apart from the 6 and 8 markers that keep popping up on an exam I'm doing now.
    Good luck everyone

    A subject that doesn't contain the word "studies"... but tbh as long as you want to join green peace after year 13 then go ahead with this fake geography course
    Um, what?
    I do Geography as well and Environmental studies is way more scientific than geography. In fact a lot of information learned in geography is dated, and therefore now wrong. For instance you would never hear any credible scientist call it 'global warming' these days as our knowledge has improved and we know that there's a lot more to it than just rising temperatures.
    Many of Greenpeace's ideas I don't even agree with, so i'm not sure where you got that from.
    And the amount of jobs you can get out of Environmental Science is vast; hydrology, glaciology, climate committees, conservationists, education, environmental surveyors and so on. But of course, you're so ignorant that you've probably never even heard of half of these things.

    There also seems to be a lot of how science works which is crap and I hate sustainability
    I know... Oh I love sustainability, there's so much that I could write about! I'd love for one of the essay options to be on sustainability.

    (Sorry to but in) what do you mean about practical skills?
    It's fine and the practical skills stuff is at the back of the textbook and is about sampling, suitable sites for sampling, quadrats... All that stuff from last year.

    I put down T-test i think (and i'm pretty sure that's right because most of my friends put that too). Um i was really happy with it because hardly any noise pollution or radiation, which were my two worst topics!
    May i ask what grade you're aiming for and what you got last year? I got an A last year, and i want an A* this year, so i beat what my brother got a few years ago!
    I put down the T-test too! I wasn't too keen on those two topics either. Well I didn't do very well at all last year... I got two Ds but was just 4 marks off a C in Unit 2 and 2 marks off a C in Unit 1. That's really cool! Haha.

    I would love an essay on pesticides and fertilisers.
    It depends on the nature of the question for sustainability as to whether I would like it.

    That would be a nice essay to do as I know quite a bit about pesticides and fertilisers and generally find it to be interesting. Okay.

    Ahh that's good

    Main factors we would need to consider would be:
    Properties
    How properties lead to Environmental damage - then what the damage is
    Then the solutions

    That would most likely get you 18-20 marks as long as you talk about the correct things.

    Was that the question about the similarities and differences between inorganic nutrients and sludge waste pollution? I remember not quite liking that.

    Yep, I hope for the best too but in all honesty I dont feel Im prepared for tomorrow as I spent the majority of my time focusing on ENVS3. Im also generally worried about the essay question and practical skills questions. How about you?
