Hello! As we all should probably know, the first exam is on the 13th May which is in nine days

How has everybody been preparing? I've pretty much just been focusing on Unit 1 as it is definitely my weak spot, I've been practising 6 mark questions until I can hit all 6 marks etc. Also, I've been wanting to find out - will grade boundaries be low as this spec is new?

My teacher is giving us one 2 mark, one four mark and one six mark for the first four topics of unit 1 and then 2 marks, 4 marks & an 8 mark for the last two topics. I know it won't be this much though, so how many six and eight marks does everyone think will come up?

Structure: What everyone thinks they'll get in geog. How they've been revising etc.

Yeah pretty well. My teacher is still deciding whether I'm going to do higher...

It's pretty much common sense and geography extract contents from biology and chemistry..

Shouldn't they have submitted that by now? I'm pretty sure she should have sent it by now!

I'm aiming for an A* overall too, though my teacher's said my ca is around an A. Have you guys finished unit 3 already? We still haven't done theme 6 so we're leaving it until after the unit 1 exam...

I'm not sure about your school, it might be entirely different but I do know my school submitted ours around a month ago because we also got our timetables ages ago! Don't worry if she asked you to see her though, it still could probably be changed

Yeah it is because my french teacher said you can change tier on the day it you change your mind (not directed at me). And they're both the same exam board.

The dynamic planet exam is the easiest IMO. What's yours

That's so cool, I didn't know that. May come in handy

And definitely PATP, unit 2 naturally comes easy to me because I remember loads of numbers.
