I'm also sitting the physical exam tomorrow but I am really stuck on what is needed to get a high mark for the 25 markers. the highest I've got so far is 14 but I have no idea on how to improve. I am practicing the River Environments ones. If anyone could help I would much appreciate it.
Can someone explain what they mean by 'Conflicts of Land Uses' in River Basins? and maybe an area I could use as an Example.
Also does anyone know any sites where it says how like corries, u-shaped glaciers ect are formed?>
Guys should we do a Game:
To help us Practise: You ask a question, person below answers then states another question for next person to answer ect.
How are Corriers Formed?
Does anyone have an idea of what the 25 mark essay could be on. Is it most likely to be on "opportunities"
From the examiner's report it looks like the January one was about drainage basins being a multi-use resource
5 Key words included: examine, river basins, multi-use and resource. Too often, one or more of these facets were missing. Good answers, and there were many, realised that the question referred not only to the river itself, but to the whole basin. Effective references were often made to the potential benefits of flood plains for both agriculture and construction. Few made it clear why a river might be suitable for HEP; references to discharge, valley cross-section and rock type were rarely mentioned. A similar issue arose over fishing; why do some rivers possess such a significant resource? Not many candidates recognised the value of the natural environment as a resource for conservation or tourism. The very best answers made summative comments about why some basins provide such a wide range of resource opportunities.
If the question was "why successful river basins management requires understanding of physical processes" what do I put or if it was for "coasts"
I took this exam 2.5 years ago. I finished the A-level last year 24 marks off an A, and the two AS exams were my weakest. So now I must take this exam after not studying geography for a year.
My knowledge is good for rivers and coasts but somewhat lacking in Hot/Semi arid environments... This'll be fun.
what was the 9 mark question on coasts about?? im really worried i got confused..
i talked about costa del sol and managing amount of water golf courses used etc. how much waste was put into the sea from industry in bangladesh.
i cant remember the exact qeustion but some friends wrote aboiut management of erosion ahhh
25 marks on erosion. Bleuuurghh
