that was so hard! I found the first question quite easy (rivers) but then the 15 marker for coasts and population was so hard!

aw man.
I totally messed up every section apart from Population. I took too long on it, and forgot I was to answer 4 sections. So in the end, I didnt finish the 15 marker for rivers, but managed to do the Antarctic 15 marker in 10 mins, and the entire Energy section in 20mins.

Aw man. I hope the A boundaries are low, because I really want to take geo next year with an A

Omgosh. that's like me to I hope they are low :|


But I thought the questions were quite good - could have been a lot harder. But decieving with the wording!
I got to the end of population and started bullet pointing all my points onwards!!

Argh, I hope they get marked.

What did you think about the health 15marker?

I didn't even know what the **** it was on about.
Haha, I had to bullet point :|

Argh. I'm actually scared.
Because if the whole country does will - the grade boundaries for an A will be higher.

I mean its like 60 now, which is quite low - but not 80%

I thought the wording wasn't that bad to be honest. Maybe I rushed it so much in the end it was too much of a blur. I think this year's grade boundaries will be at around 60.

And with a bit of luck, I would have got a decent A.

Yess excatly, its at 60 but could go up if the whole country does good.

But I have just forgotten - we do not get our marks we get UMS.

So how does that work out? If we get 60.

I finished the exam, 1a and b (i spoke about v-shaped and u-shaped valley but last second I changed it around and got it wrong, I metioned concave and convex banks though, hope I get a mark) were like wtf, I hadn't bothered learning about that. 1c, I absolutely destroyed that, I just vomited all the facts and figures about it.

Deserts was a beauty, loved everything about it, even the sources of water.

Population, I think I messed the DTM up, I put Death, Birth, Natural Increase/Decrease (growth) and then Time period. The case study was worded weirdly, I spoke about the UK having an old pop. and the One Child Policy (which was linked to it) in so much detail. Malaysia was dodgy, I said it was in 2 but i'm now having doubts as it could be classed as 3

Health was okay, I think I did well on that. I just remembered all the services around my area and wrote about it. Disease of affluence was a dream question. GDP per capita and figures should see me getting full marks.

Overall I think I may have got 80-85 marks which should be an A?

I hope I did that well, onto unit 2 now. If I do well on that then an A should be assured.

BTW, across the country people will have also found it hard, around 60 will be an A again. Still gonna resit this though. I spent 6 days revising and the Three Gorges didn't even come up, neither did AIDS

Politics now,woooo (!)
