    From what I have read people struggled with this exam, this hopefully means they will try and lower the mark scheme.

    Yeah I agree although I did the January exam for my mock and the questions were more straight forward and you could have easily have gotten full marks if you had revised. Whereas the questions on this paper the questions were slightly weirdly worded, therefore I think that people answered them differently as they were more subjective.

    e.g. the 15 marker of rivers (and yes I still remember the question)

    The question was discuss whether human or physical factors are more important for affecting discharge?

    Most people would have done physical factors which increase discharge and then human factors which increase discharge and my teachers said as long as you went into enough detail and describing which are more important then you would get 15/15.

    Whereas the question said affecting river discharge and therefore I came to the conclusion that human factors are more important as they can also significantly reduce discharge through soft and hard engineering.

    whereas most people would have done (this I know is generalistic but what the feedback from my class was)

    physical

    Precipitation
    Vegetation
    Geology
    Steep relief
    ECT

    Human

    Deforestation
    Urbanisation
    and cannot think of anymore right now

    then come to a conclusion

    My main point is that the questions are generally subjective and therefore it is bassically whether the examiner agrees with your statements and opinions particularly in discuss/comment/evaluate questions.
