I don't think there is a thread for Environmental Studies so I thought I'd start one :3 I was wondering how are all of you finding the subject and what would you say you find most difficult or hard to revise? For me it has to be the legislation and the measuring of population sizes.

I've only just started my revision :/ I also have a sociology exam on the same day! I'm so nervous. I'm finding practical skills difficult- so yeah measure of populations. I get them all mixed up and then just too much too learn in one night -.-

I haven't revised a whole lot cause I was revising more for my psycholoy exam. Me too, I really dislike practical skills to and also land resources. I know, I havent really revised the practical skills and they come up in nearly every exam. Good luck for tomorrow. Sociology isnt too bad, I've done it at AS and got an A overall... you should focus more on envirinmental studies cause i have a feeling they are going to include questions about the practical skills.

How did you find that exam? I have a strong feeling that I failed it, I'll be lucky if I get an E. I mean the topics I revised and generally liked more didnt come up.. grr!! Im most likely going to have to resist -_-

I found it difficult too and so did a lot of other people in my class. How is environmental studies like at A2 and is unit 2 of AS harder than unit 1? Which unit have you done better in?

It was so different then what I learnt in class. Totally failed it Past papers were much easier! Hopefully they bring the grade boundaries down?

I agree, this exam was not an easy one. I thought that some of the questions were poorly worded. Exams in the past were much more straight forward, although the last question was fairly straight forward and the simple definitions were easy too. Who here actually understood the question regarding coppicing?

I know and I think they would bring the grade boundaries down as most people found it difficult. I dont think it will make much of a difference for me though as I did really badly... the grade boundaries only ever go down 2 or 3 marks.

I kind of understood it but I dont think what I wrote was relevant to the actual question. I found myself being too repetitive on the last question and it wasnt until after the exam that I knew what else I could have included. At the time of the exam I found it to be quite a difficult question. >.>

For the coppicing one I found myself blabbing on about how plagioclimaxes can hold a wider variety of species and how all these species seem to occupy a different niche and as time went on and the trees weren't coppiced they were able to follow on to succession, but I randomly threw down all of this rubbish in a mad blur of OMG I LEFT THIS QUESTION TILL LAST AND NOW I HAVE 5 MINUTES!..No point worrying now I still have geography and geology to get through ><

Yep, I just know I've failed >.> You should be able to catch up with the atmosphere topic fairly quickly as it isn't too difficult and there isn't alot to learn for it either. The hydrosphere topic is quite difficult so I would spend more time going through it. I don't know of any revision sites for enviromental studies although it is useful to watch a lot of videos to do with the hydrosphere. And presuming you're doing the lithosphere now, that shiuldn't be too bad.

I just scraped an E and I agree, that coppicing question was confusing. I found most of the paper quite confusing to be frank so I knew I would've either gotten a U or an E.

Ugh it was bad. I want to know when the paper and mark scheme is released so I can know why I did so terribly.
