I thought it was easy at most parts. The development qwc was a question for free marks FOR SURE. The living in an active zone, water and population qwcs required thought for me... Other than that, the vast majority were comfortable to answer. That distribution of Indian tourists was weird... I put it was scattered, and the most concentration for Indian tourists were in the south-west of Asia :P

For the water section, did you put down meanders and a flood plain for the photo landform question thingy? My friend put down interlocking spurs, and I swear there were none of those shown...

How do you think you did?

The grade boundaries are probably going to be higher, for sure. It was easier than last year's. I'm predicting at least a B for me :P

I thought it was easier than expected.. graphs were hard to read, and I've messed up some questions.. I'm hoping for a A but a bit panicky now due to everyone doing 'well' grade boundaries will go up!
I put down Meanders and oxbow lakes. Haha, did you say the river flew 'south east'?

I found the last question of the map to draw hard, as I didn't check over the map! I wrote some correct information so I'm sure I'll get some credits about Ghana..
I forgot to check over meanders and could only label a couple of points, so lost marks on that.. the graphs were giving me decimal places so I kinda guessed :/ the case studies were pretty simple.. for Neatherlands I didn't do a LEDC and MEDC I just talked about the UK and not Sudan! damm, haha.. I think it's because I was trying to focus on the time.

For India I said they were located in MEDCs (no idea)

Good luck with your results hope you do well!

yeah, the graphs were a pain just described everything i could :P but the amount of graph questions on the paper!!!!!
Yeah I put that as well. Many people i know did.
For the living in an active zone graph where we had to suggest, I put down tsunamis and secondary hazards causing the most damage????? or illness or aid not arriving that quickly. Although i didn't think it was that because there was a gradual increase of admissions :P
How do you even get these different case studies to us? Our geography teacher isn't that great, teaching the content wise. He gets almost EVERYTHING out of the text books.

That's the least of our worries concerning exams :P Mae iaith Saesneg, Cymraeg a gwyddoniaeth! (at least for me anyway. I'm dreading the welsh and the comprehension...)

Anyway, you'll be fine :P just be confident in yourself, or just believe you'll fail, but actually get an A or an A* (worked with me for English literature when I sat it in January) and good luck to you too!

I found it quite easy, I'm just hoping to get an A*, but the boundaries will be high because it was an easy paper, so I'll probably get a A.
