    Hello, I couldn't find anything on this exam.. I'm doing Restless Earth, Water On The Land and The Coast in the physical paper and Tourism, Population and Changing Urban Environments in the Human... What are you guy's doing? How are you revising? How do you feel about the exam?
    I'm doing exactly the same topics.
    Does anyone have any idea what could come up questions/case studies wise? I'm really worrying about my geography exams on top of my history
    Any help for geography will be appreciated

    I outlined the main hard engineering strategies and then evaluated each one. I then compared the overall advantages of hard engineering with soft. (Less management/maintenance required)

    Was that the dam and reservoir question?

    I thought I did rubbish in Unit 1 at the time but somehow came out with full marks (150 UMS). Although I find Human Geography harder, mainly due to the fact is a lot more boring

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I only talked about negatives. I felt the word 'issues' has a negative connotation. I mean, there are not really anything such as a 'positive issue', is there?

    Overall, I liked the exam even though I messed up on the last question. I started talking about soft engineering when it said choose one and then I realised that I didn't have any facts/case study for it so I switched to hard engineering with about 5 minutes left in the exam...

    Well it was 8 marks so I presumed both would have to be discussed. Which section was the hard/soft engineering section?

    We did the living world section and it was probably the best section, it was a bit of a gift compared to the others

    I just wrote about 8 different problems with dams, including the environmental, political, economic and social issues. The hard/soft engineering was in the Coastal Zone section (Section 2).

    I dont think a case study is necessary for the coasts question but you can't get full marks if dont mention one. What did you put for the river discharge (6 mark question)?
