    In my tectonic essay, i didnt really talk about how volcanoes occur and where they occur.... how many marks would i lose?
    I don't think you will as long as you covered other points :P I didn't name types of volcanoes, only when talking about case studies...

    Going to sound completely stupid.. i need 120 ums out of 200 for an A* overall (between this unit 3 exam and 4b next week) does anyone know what grade i would need to get *roughly* to get 120 ums?
    Do you mean 120 UMS to get an A overall? To get an A* you have to get 180 UMS (90%) at A2, with an overall 320 UMS (80%) across both years.

    120 UMS is 60% which is a C.

    Well done for getting full UMS at AS, but you still need 180 UMS at A2, but yes you only need a C to get an A overall.

    My uni offer is ABB, but it doesn't matter what I get the A in (music preferably) but I have always aimed for an A in geography overall would be over the moon - don't want to jinx myself though!

    what about you?

    Can someone reassure me with the past few years grade boundaries? What was it to get an A? and do you reckon it will go up this year?
    Anyone?

    Anyone else for the 15 mark World Cities question (economic development and urbanisation)
    talk about how there is a strong relationship which inevitably plateau's as economic development reaches high levels?

    Talked about the UK pre industrialisation having a high rural population concentrated in agriculture (a primary sector economic activity) , but then as they developed through industrialisation (secondary sector) urbanisation occurred. Said how there were various push/pull factors based on this whole concept of economic development.

    Evaluation point was to say that economic development at high levels, as in post industrial Britain has led to a regression of urbanisation and, in fact, increased counter urbanisation and suburbanisation as facilitated by economic development through increased affluence resulting in car ownership/second home buying in rural areas. Moreover, economic development has led to public transport provision facilitating this suburban life - this reduction in urbanisation.

    The 7 markers and 8 markers were atrocious though.

    Tectonics structured were alright. 8 marker had me repeating my self a lot.

    Did separatism essay, and the word "issues" through me off though. Very difficult not to case study dump

    Trying to get AAA myself, but whether that will happen or not, who knows!? My insurance is AAB as well... I thought when I was choosing that it would be fine. Now I'm not so sure!

    Have you applied for music, then? Whereabouts?

    the thing is we don't know! it depends on the results as a whole :P

    it seems everyone on TSR has done well, yet this is TSR! But I don't think it will be more than 62/63 despite being a nice paper!
