    I have the exact same question, I really want to know because the exam is in 24 hours and I am so not prepared and there is too much to do - I need to know the predicted 15 marks particularly, I am doing rivers, coasts, population and health. thank you

    sorry to jump in here..I thought it was horrendous!
    took me so flippin long to think of something for that population 15 marker I was really pushed for time at the end. Also the first 2 energy questions....sorry what? never heard of you before!
    also next to no case studies...angry coz I knew mine really well and was totally ready to blab on about Gambia etc.
    not best pleased..all I can think about now is everything I forgot to include. worst bloody 15markers ive ever written I think.
    questions were very vague and strangely worded.
    slightly pee'd off the say the least...might have just blown it!

    It felt more like an economics paper! I mean it wasn't to difficult but it was quiet hard to get all the marks in some questions also on rivers when asked you to assess human and physical flooding causes and it barely gave you 4 marks worth of content

    Well its certainly propitious that enough people may have found some of the questions equally onerous...those grade boundaries will be coming down

    I would say many of your figures were incorrecte e.g. The permeability of sandstone
    Secondly there was a population question included in the Deserts section
    Thirdly the population 15 marker was far to broad and many people will not get high marks due to the ambiguity of the question but the strictness of the mark scheme
