    I found it fine but i was rushed for time.

    The last question i had plenty to talk about because we had recently learnt stuff about quarries.

    Compared to Past Papers, it was probably slighly harder, but not much.

    For the Q about why was the A30 road located here, do you think I would get marks for putting stuff about:

    cheaper for council to buy due to rural area
    flat land
    steep valley sides to screen urban areas
    pleasant view for tourists
    more room due for dual carriageway and so, less congestion
    away from buildings, so less vibrational damage
    rural area means higher speed limit

    Well, I got the same length as you, but for the size of the sute, i got 0.4 instead of 0.3km^2
    Also, for the cross section, I got a flat line, which dips down and then ascends again before joining to what they gave you
    For the description of the quarry site, which Q were you one about? The relief? If so, then i put,

    well drained with river
    gently sloping = fairly flat
    also high lying - over 200m above sea lvl

    gently sloping = fairly flat
    also high lying - over 200m above sea lvl
    For the Relief I got:
    1) Land between 400 and 200m above sea level
    2) On the slope of a hill, which is now a cliff dropping 70m
    + A lot of waffle

    The cross section - It dipped a small amount more, maybe 15m or so, then you have your mark for the boundry, and it climsb up slowly, and then a biti more, till it touches the other end at about 260m.

    Correct?
