i really didn't expect there to be so many long answer questions! I didn't know my case studies very well so it might have cost me!

The biosphere one was something about latitude and soil I think.

It was how does altitiude and soils effect biomes or something along those lines.

I found it difficult, they seemed to change the question format as well compared to previous years? They didn't put "Using a named example" like they used to.

Chilling😎 and they changed the specification this year, which is why the layout was different. Didn't you guys do a mock test back in Jan?

Yeah I put 1000m up equals a drop by 6.5 degrees in tempreture so biomes like the tundra are found on high altitudes but the soil I had nothing to put, what did everyone else put?

Same thing - every 100m altitude increase, temps drop by 0.5degC. What did you guys put for the very first question in restless earth (besides the lahars melting)?

Ahhh I put that the drier soils lie farther from the equator as precipitation is concentrated there, so much crap wasn't in my geography edexcel book

I didn't choose oceans on edge nor river processes. Curious to know of those 8 mark questions were difficult as well??
