I'm doing the same exam board!

I think I have Population and Settlements and Rivers and Coast sorted but I'm quite weak on Economic Development.

My teacher says it *could* be tropical storms, so I'm focusing on that, but having a look over droughts and earthquakes too.

I don't learn case studies for the SDME I'll just be aware of the management techniques they used but won't bother with causes/effects etc.

I meant case studies for Paper 1, and yes my teacher also estimated that too for Paper 2. Still scary that anything else could turn up on paper 2 as its not fixed :hmpf:

My teacher thinks paper 2 will be Tropical storm too! But she said to make sure to learn all the other hazards as well!
The case studies for paper 2 are also not that important as the ones for paper 1

Oh no i'm getting confused now, I think i was wrong before.

lets clear this confusion:

Paper 1 - Sustainable decision making (no case studies)
Paper 2 - Key Geographical Themes - Case studies to learn

Yes you are right but it's a good idea to know about the case studies for Natural Hazards because you can relate to them in the Section C when you make your decision

Guys, for like June 2013, where can I get the grade boundaries from?

I've looked at the OCR Grade Boundaries for June 2013, but it only states the grade boundaries for each paper like - It shows grade boundaries for SDME paper, Key Geo Themes paper and Controlled Assessment grade boundaries. But where can I get the TOTAL grade boundary, for like the whole final grade?

I think it went well! Glad tropical storms came up but it seems like they decided to give less space to write in this time!

Okay, I may be wrong, so don't take my word for it, but isn't your final grade decided by the UMS marks? Like in science 360+ out of 400 total is an overall A* IDK... I assume its similar for Geography

Is the exam tomorrow out of 99 marks or 75 marks? I know they have changed it so you have to answer every question but do you know why it's now out of 99?
