    I think I might have messed the comment questions up. does comment mean you explain as well as describe?
    No comment on is like a "for and against argument" basically, sum up both sides

    It means point out something then say what it does, so make a judgment:
    China has a one child policy - This means that they had a population boom they wanted to manage
    The red is the comment (thats what our teacher taught us)

    For the population 15 marker I compared the UK (2004 EU immigration, increase in working age ect) with Uganda (improvements in health, contraception etc). Could this be a okay comparison or did I do this question totally wrong?? Al

    I find the "Comment on.." questions so ambiguous and vary depending on the answer on the paper from looking at markschemes.

    + I may complain about the picture in the paper, it was very hard to see with the colour and I think it affected a lot of people.

    For the definition of morbidity I put:

    "Morbidity refers to ill health, an example of this is someone having lung cancer"

    I'm guessing I got 0 marks?
    Nope but I put that high morbidity rates can lead to an increase in mortality, which are linked - dont know if its relavent but i wanted to use up space.
    What did anyone put for the Rivers 15 marks essay? I confused by what they were asking.

    What did people do for the COLD ENVIRONMENTS 15 marker and the RIVERS 15 marker? I'm soooo worried! I ran out of time so was forced to half complete a 6 marker and miss out a 5 marker time is CRAP in this paper. Ridiculous.

    There's not going to be one view, everyone's going to have a different opinion on the paper I personally think physical (rivers and coasts) was quite difficult and slightly confusing in places, and I messed up the fifteen markers, don't think I've got more than about 8 or 9 marks on each. Population and health on the other hand was lovely, I thought the questions were nice and none of them were particularly challenging for me. So it's pretty balanced in my opinion, I don't think the difficulty of the physical side will impact the grade boundaries due to the human side being nice

    Hey guys, just joined the forum because I wanted to ask what exactly you think was wrong with the picture? I mean it was a three marker I'm assuming its one mark for saying it was a dam and another for pointing out the reservoir is it the last mark you're annoyed about?
