    Wasn't the question about ways in which they can be managed?

    Talked about different types such as early warning systems, monitoring, precautionary evac (but not feasible as it's all guesswork). Talked about protection from tsunamis

    kind of split the 10 marker into distinct methods
    Yeah different ways they can be managed
    Good - Kobe's protective buildings to manage damage/deaths/ school drills to manage the amount of deaths e.g. whilst in school they'll know what to do

    Bad ways they can be managed - Sichuan, ignored building regulations to manage earthquake, which didnt manage their effects at all as it gave in to the quake more easily.

    Oh and also it said using examples i.e at least 2 case studies

    Just looked some up and what you said came up too on different earthquake pages.
    I know I should keep worrying... I can't aha.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Same here. Wording nearly caught me out but it wasn't about comparing two or more different quakes, it was general methods.

    As long as you referred to case studies, yes. However, mark schemes say that if you just give generic answers without normally around 2 case studies in the 10 marker, you limit yourself to a band 1 - 4 marks max.

    Because the question was "with reference to examples, discuss the different ways earthquakes can be managed".

    Perhaps I didn't phrase myself correctly. I meant it wasn't comparing the way two EQs were managed - i.e. one good, one bad, it was asking how they can be managed - obviously case study knowledge was needed for a 10 marker.

    Ah ok, Well I asked earlier in the thread whether bad ways they can be managed was relevant and others agreed that it was. The question was very open.

    Normally the comparison questions would say "With contrasting areas, compare the different ways EQ's can be managed"

    Even though I knew it wasn't to compare, I gave the different ways they can be managed in the two case studies I had knowledge on, because that was answering the question. Regardless of whether it asked to compare contrasting areas or not, the different ways they can be managed stay the same.

    The question was about seismic events not just earthquakes wasn't it? I talked about the Boxing Day tsunami as well as two earthquakes so I hope that is valid as well

    It's tricky- I did the ecosystems essay and wondered whether going on about the Serengeti would get credited because human activity does effect the ecosystem in the local area, like local farmers causing desertification and poaching reducing biodiversity etc. In the end I just went with urban ecosystems in the uk and did heather moorland and conservation case studies, then went on about planned introduction of cane toads in Australia or something, but thinking about it I really don't see how you wouldn't get marks

    Hopefully I pick some up haha I think its more regional rather than on a local scale but many of the points relate to both so hopefully they are feeling nice

    To be honest it wasn't a bad exam, the Separatism question at the end was really nice. The World Cities section wasn't too lovely but it can't be handed to you on a plate. I'm not meaning to sound nasty, but surely everyone knew to do 1 from Section A, 1 from B and 1 from C. We were briefed to so many times by the teachers and then by the exam invigilators. I think this was a good exam and I really hope I get my A*

    Yes as Seismic events in anything related to volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. The tsunami answer would of gave you an advantage as it's more breadth

    Also, wouldn't volcanic events come under either volcanic/vulcanicity?

    yeah talking about volcanoes for a seismicity question is completely wrong

    Yes sure, what was the exact question again? (I forgot) I remember I discussed an aspect of all 3.
