    I found it a weird paper... not too hard but just unexpected things came up.
    Which long answer question did you do?

    absolutely hated it, did so much wrong, edexcel definitely mugged us off compared to all the past papers. i was getting 80/90 in the practise paper and in this one i will be lucky if i even got 10.

    i hated the whole paper but you have to admit that the questions at the end, the 10 and 15 marker were relatively straight forward?

    i've got to admit the papers that i'd done before this were completely different, there was barely anything on hotspots and some of the global questions were ridiculous... post colonialism? at least I actually knew what it was, but many other people in my year were completely thrown by it, not even sure if we were taught it. Luckily we covered it in English Lit so it wasn't too bad... and the esg scores... come on. the last questions were ok, I did question 8 but found there wasnt that much to say about the first part (global sea level rise)

    I thought it was a really figure based and directed paper. There wasn't really a lot left for interpretation and own explanations. I felt it was too directed! Hopefully the grade boundaries will be low !

    I actually found it really easy, the post colonialism question was a little bit strange but I feel like I managed to guess the answer correctly. I have always found unit one is very much like the GCSE exam where it is practically general knowledge for geography.

    Thought it was a nice paper. On;y question I didn't really like was about buying locally. Wasn't sure how to get 5 marks for writing about ethical pros and cons OR green pros and cons.
    I did question 7.
    That question was perfect

    part A was really hard...I basically ended up just repeating things about trade flows increasing, however only in certain regions and why that might be etc. (although i was really lucky and i remember reading the article in the FT from where the source was!)

    Ha ha lucky you- that must have helped a lot!
    I commented on that Asia exports so high and why cos there so quickly developing
    Why western Europe was experiencing slowest growth
    Why middle east was quite low...
    And why Africa was quite low
    So mainly making comments about how high or low one of the exportations and/or annual growth of it was for one region and trying to explain why...
    Is that what you did?
    Wat abt part b?

    question 9 was by far the hardest question out of all the essays,i think you made the wrong decision -10 was easier aswell as 7 being a piece of cake if you knew your casestudies. I did question 7 ,the exam was amazing,couldnt have gone better,hoping for 120
