    For the essay in question 8, I didn't mention El Nino, do you think they would take marks off? I talked about the three Milankovich cycles, sunspots and volcanic activity and mentioned the timescales, but I'm worried that I'll be marked down for not including El Nino.
    I didn't mention it either but I assume you don't need to mention every point on the mark scheme to get a good mark. I assume you won't just get the marks rather than marks being taken away.

    I ended up doing question 7, realised I wasn't linking back to figure 7, then went back to add stuff to it. I'm pretty sure I mentioned the Philippines and California on both the 10 and 15 with a bit of Africa in the 10 and Haiti in the 15.

    To be fair I need to get almost full marks in this paper, because I'm likely to flop Unit 2 on friday.

    I did the same question and i didn't write about El nino either? I didn't realise that it was natural climate change, thought they were just a natural weather pattern event. I wrote about the same as you and i think thats what they were looking for no?

    it was 0.3 cos on the y axis the difference was 0.5 per peice of data ie 1.5 to 2.0 hence the difference can only be 0.3 as it was in the same 0.5 range and all the other options were greater than 0.5
    I got 0.3 as well for the same reasons

    The range is the highest value minus the lowest value... so the answer is 1.3
