    Wouldn't hep be an adaptation of the fold mountains as you're using the steep valleys etc
    Tourism you're using the fold mountains provides jobs helps conditions by providing income
    I think perhaps you're slightly overthinking it but who knows
    The question asked how people have managed to overcome the difficulties with living on fold mountains. Tourism doesn't overcome any difficulties directly related to the difficulties living on a fold mount

    Well that's the thing, is that an adaptation to difficult conditions? Who knows bro
    You could say high slopes can cause rock slides so they dammed it and made hep as it is ideal in the alps - as well as renewable and sustainable

    For the question about a case study about fold mountains, in the question, it said discuss how people living there are adapted to difficult living styles or w/e. Therefore, I didn't write about HEP, Mining, Tourism and Farming for uses. I had revised adaptations the day before and some points I included were:

    -High slopes had infertile soil - therefore, llamas and goats are farmed there
    -Consequently, the lower slopes had fertile soil, therefore crops could be grown there
    - Limited communications - roads were long and would take ages traveling, therefore, they were adapted to this by building tunnels through the mountains for shortcuts.
    -Because they live near mountains and there are hazards such as avalanches - they adapted to this by building large trees to absorb the impact.

    So yeah, I think I'm literally the only one who put those down. Either I'm the only one who got that question right, or everyone else got it right and I didn't.......

    *ps, in the spec it says candidates should be aware of how people are ADAPTED to living in tough, extreme places*

    Well done to everyone nonetheless!
    You're not the only one!

    Yesterday in a Geography revision session my teacher warned us about a question relating to fold mountains. He said that we should read the question carefully to see what it was asking because there's a different to land use and how people have adapted. I literally love my teacher to bits because we went through it yesterday and I felt like jumping up hugging everyone!

    So yeah, I think we should get the marks because I also put those exact points down (any chance they were from the CGP book? )

    Haha! Yep, I got them from the CGP book but I was worried because I didn't know what spec that book followed - but then I looked at the AQA spec and everything was goooood! So glad I wrote that down in my notes! Good on your teacher too!

    destructive wave, high frequency 10-14 per minute, steep and high, backwash stronger than swash

    what did you put for how do constructive waves shape the coast? you don't need to write about longshore drift right?
    It said to describe, your answer seems to go into to more detail and explain it. I mentioned the shingle of the promenade and the fact that water was coming over the top of the promenade, perhaps there was high tide (something like that)

    I put very similar, but mentioned transhumance farming and that they use goats as they are abled climbers unlike cows etc . And also used the cheeky CGP points under the land use😊

    I reckon the grade boundaries will be sky high.

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

    Everyone found it fairly straightforward.
    what do you think the foundation paper grade boundaries will be, i did foundation

    I did Q 1, 5, 7

    q1) R.earth--- I did the Andes, talked about terracing, foresting, llama in the mining industry, subsistence farmer... those points mainly and developed them a lot more obvs

    q5) Rivers--- I did MEDC effect vs/ LEDC effects

    I did the Cockermouth vs/ Bangladesh
    I did about 4-6 primary and secondary effects for Cockermouth and 3-4 primary and secondary effects for Bangladesh. ALso i tried to compare as much as possible....
    but i think i might have lost a few marks on that Q

    The q7) Coasts---- I did the case study about East Anglia

    I did 1 like 3-4 social points and 1 political points, then I realized that there was clearly not enough... so i used a few economic points and tried my hardest to like it to social and political , i think i also may have lost a few marks on this.

    wby
    I think you'll be fine. For q5 I did about 3 effects for both and then said that the LEDC is more severe due to lack of funding for emergency services.

    First one I did the Alps talking about them being isolated so they build roads through the mountain, farm at the bottom of the slope, HEP schemes.
    Do you think I'll pick up any marks for a labelled cross section of the meander?

    On that mark scheme that I saw for a past paper, a similar Q came up...
    And there were 2 diagrams where a the marks were awarded for, bc they didn't specify if you were supposed to draw a cross section or a birds eye view

    So long you show where deposition, erosion, cliff, slip off slope or even flood plain... or anything revolving around that... u should get the marks.

    But if anything, You'll only lose 1 or 2 marks... which isn't too bad.

    I think you'll be fine too!
