    Have you not got your 15 mark answers, it will help us to build upon it and to see what it should look like
    15 markers from where?? I didn't do any practices before the real exam! Sorry!

    No we never handed in past paper questions. We did topic tests in class!

    Hey I took this exam last year (coasts, rivers, health and population) and got an A (full UMS). Feel free to ask me any questions about the exam, revision, the topics I did . Best of luck to you all .

    Hi, I am doing the same topics as you did. I have noticed that there are more case studies in my textbook than the spec says is needed, would you mind telling me what case studies you were taught last year? I don't need specifics but just for example: one for an ageing population, one for a youthful etc. It would really help me, thank you

    Can I ask you whether you did about an optimistic and pessimistic approach to population about Boserup and Malthus and about over population, under population and optimum population- it's just we've done about half a booklet on it and I've never found where its applicable in the exam paper, I was wondering if it was just extra information or I'm just not sure what sort of question you'd be asked about it, thanks

    I find geography revision so tedious.. But I'm plodding along😪
    Which case studies are all of you doing?

    I was wondering the same... Does it it mention Malthus/Boserup etc in the specification? As its not in CGP revision guide so it may be just extra info

    Yeah I don't know why, the only thing vaugely like that is
    what are the disadvantages and advantages of different measures
    like infant mortality rate.....

    can anyone answer that and for the other measures like that?

    Long profile is the profile from source to mouth.

    Cross profile is like if you went to one part of the river and cut a slice and you looked at the banks and the curvature of the river etc.

    Long profile shows how the gradient/height above sea level changes over the course of the river

    Cross profile shows the characteristics of the valley/river channel over the rivers course (for example, upper course = narrow v shaped valley etc....


    I think that's right

    Is the bellow correct? Ok because their is a question saying explain why a river valley changes in its cross profile downstream..... I was thinking more about the long profile and that the gradient is lower etc less potential energy so deposition etc ????

    Well I would talk about all of that but then link it back to the cross profile, for example, in the upper course of river, higher level above sea level, therefore more gravitational potential energy, so rates of vertical erosion are higher than lateral rates, therefore channel will be narrow etc... As you go to the middle course, river effected less by gravity so there is less GPE and so lateral rates of erosion are more dominant than vertical, therefore channel is wider etc...
