    Did anyone do the 10 marker on the River Elbe? The photo confused me. I couldn't tell if it was a flooded river or the houses were built raised above the river...

    I didnt say that but i had this weird mind blank and wrote about something completely different yet i know that even if you get the source wrong and make up a new issue and put strategies relating to that you can still get a maximum of 6! so dont worry for whatever you put , i nearly freaked when i found out

    is anyone doing the f764 retake? If so, does anyone know the advantages,etc... Of GIS software
    it automatically logs data so can store more information and collect larger samples
    it over lays data to produce striking 3d images so is good for data presentation
    its current and up to date being automatic unlike an os map

    The specification says "Candidates need to have undertaken individual research on a geographical topic of their choice, following the stages in investigation listed in the table below. This individual research/investigation should be based on any of the topics addressed in Units F761, F762 and F763. It should provide clear evidence of extension and synthesis of understanding and skills."

    I'm guessing that's why they've asked a couple of questions on why you chose the fieldwork/ the importance of the factors when you were choosing a piece of fieldwork. But we've only done fieldwork that the teacher has picked, so when we were going over the past papers he went through one of the pieces of fieldwork and he explained all the relevant factors. So if a similar question comes up, we write it as if it was us, not him tha decided.

    Does this apply to anyone else?

    It wasn't too bad. Although this paper is odd. In most exams (other than this geography), you have to answer all the short questions, then you're given then get a choice of essay question. But this was the opposite.

    My entire class blagged that question and we all wrote about different bits of fieldwork (there's only 5 of us). We've done plenty of bits of fieldwork. And a couple of weeks ago spent about 2-3 lessons of various kinds of maps, graphs and charts. BUT we only made a couple of graphs/maps in total that displayed the results from our fieldwork, which wouldn't have been enough to answer the question. So we expanded on what we had done and wrote about what the other charts and graphs and maps would have looked like if we had drawn them, but writing it as if we had. Anyway the examiner doesn't see our fieldwork write-ups, so they don't know what the data presentation would look like, so it didn't matter that we blagged it.

    So yeah, we blagged it, saying what we thought the maps/graphs/charts would show and how effective they would all be.

    Thats what my class did aswell, I just made up the the different ways of presenting data! There's no way they can find out because everyone did a different investigation

    Precisely and we don't hand in any fieldwork write-ups to OCR.

    My mum said she had some kind of controlled assessment for her access course. They could take in a page of notes and the questiosn were related to the research she had done and the notes she made. But candidates had to hand their notes in with their exam paper.

    If we had to do similar and take our write-up in, it would be difficult to blag something if it wasn't in your notes as the examiner would know you've just made it up.
