CCEA a2 geography summer 2013Watch
Could anyone tell me which case studies/part c questions came up for the physical paper in January 2013? cant find it out anywhere? please help!
Regional Case study on a River Basin and its management eg Colorado USA
Case Study on Coastal Protection eg Holderness
For Dynamic Earth:
Case study of a Volcanic Event and its management eg Pinatubo, Philippines
Case study of 2 Earthquake events (LEDC/MEDC) and their management eg Kobe, Japan and Gujarat, India
I can't help you for ecosystems as I don't do it!
You reckon, what other predictions ye reckon for the exam?
There was maybe too much of a focus on resource based questions which threw people off time wise, but I was able to get it done and to a good standard (hopefully!)
I assume you did it in January? If so how did that go UMS wise?
Predictions.. it's harder to predict this paper as there has only ever been three of them. I'll have to think about it!
Aw not so bad then id say you did brilliant like! i did population, sustainable developments and tourism for mines and got 90. Was really happy
Did you get any raw mark back also? Just looking to see what the boundaries are like. Did you come out of the exam being like... "yeah 100%" or..,. "I could have written a bit more" ?
Thanks for that nope i didnt get any raw marks just got UMS marks. Emm yeah i defo could have written a lot more but everyone i knew found the test difficult so then i realised that they probably lowered the grade boundaries for that particular exam! im dreading this exam but, do u think a coastal landform/volcanic landform will come up this year?
For Dynamic, one of the questions will probably have a question on diagram of boundary + features and the other will be a typical ,  resource,  case study.
I'll be rooting for you to get 90/110 at least for that A* anyways!
I'm learning the Colorado case study but the notes we were given are pretty poor and fail to fit the bill for the spec. If you's had the time could you give me a hand? Starting to brick myself haha
I have started my revision for the papers but I feel like after all this time that I still can't answer the questions. HELP, how can I do well in this paper? And how can I prepare myself EARLY to do well?
I don't think the stuff in the textbook is ANYWHERE NEAR what you need to know, not anywhere near it. I feel like if I revised just the textbook that I would fail miserably. Today I attempted to answer a simple 6 market question on Aids and there was not enough detail in the textbook.
