    Did anyone else write about China and France for the population 15 marker?
    I did I said they were both successful but perhaps not to the extent that the governments wanted them to be. I think that was my best 15 marker.

    I found the rivers, coasts and health sections relatively straight forward but, population is where I think I have lost most marks..

    Did anyone here do Food Supply Issues? By the looks of it, most of you did Health. What did people put for the question that asked about how agricultural systems can be classified? I talked about arable/pastoral, commercial/subsistence and intensive/extensive... was that the right way to go about that question?

    I just wrote about extensive, intensive and subsistence mainly. I did a sentence at the end mentioning arable and pastoral though. Although wasn't it only worth 5 marks?

    Yeah it was 5 marks, guess if you talked about 3 it should hopefully be enough to get the 5 marks . What issues did you talk about in the 15 marker if you can remember? It talked about demand for seasonal produce and high demand for from rich countries from poorer countries.

    did anybody do the glaciation section? The 15 marker for that section completely threw me! I've never seen a question based on ice movement before? Never even mentioned Antarctica like I was expecting it too as it was on nearly all the past papers! Hope the grade boundaries are low for this paper!

    Well for the second section, I would just explain everything in lots of detail.. also, if a question asks you to refer to data from your fieldwork, as long as it is reasonable, you can make the figures up, as the examiners won't see our fieldwork data And I guess just go over all the graphical techniques to make sure you know them all.

    I know!!!! It was the most confusing and horrible question they could have given us! That eskers question was just as bad, completely mucked up the entire section. :mad: I pretty much just blagged the entire paper in the end :/
