I don't remember what I wrote but I am so scared because I ran out of time and couldn't finish the map questions...my friends also ran out of time but I did two case studies for the transport schemes question and they did three because apparently that's what you're meant to do for nine mark questions. What did you do? I'm so scared.

I managed to attempt all the questions. I thought it was south west for directions. I did two case studies as well but I don't know if we were expected to give three case studies.

i'm so happy the first thing i did was the sustainable transport scheme question or else i wouldn't have got any marks at all. I pray i don't get a U. If i get a B, at least i can make up for it in unit 2 and 3.

Are you talking about the one off of the Brent Knoll summit? For that, I did Southwest as well. It's a relief to know that someone else picked the same direction as me. All of my friends did North, and I know that it's only one mark but I am still terrified!

I put southwest for directions. For the risk, I mentioned how sea levels are rising (around 88cm by the end of the century), how the majority of land in the map we were given was at sea level and how the river ran straight through the OS map and on the news article it showed it was flooding. Finally for the 9 mark I used 3 case studies - congestion charge, boris bikes and park and ride.

I thought the 9 marker included the 3 marks for SPaG? So the content is 6 marks?

In the 9 marker I used 2 case studies, that's what the teacher told us to do
I wrote about park and ride, and express bus highways in Curitiba

I literally had no idea on that question I wrote about how they were straight and how they crossed over rivers a few times

I just said that it was straight, there was a construction road and it was about less than 4m wide. That question was so annoying.

They'll probably let you off with 5.25 all you did was measure it as 10.5cm instead of just 10cm

All of me and my friends measured exactly 10.5cm! but the mark schemes are usually quite lenient:crossedf:

For full marks the mark scheme only asks for two case studies, I think some people did three to be sure. For example people in my school did congestion charge and park and ride but some people added boris bike to be safe, not that it was necessary.
