Who has this exam? The worst thing I've had to deal with so far, is learning the causes, effects and responses for fifteen case studies! and ONLY three will come up on the paper! They are worth nine marks each because of the additional three marks for SPAG.

I'm just wondering how is everybody else feeling for next Thursday?

i dunno... but all i want is an A for geography... i dont care if its low or high, just want a freakin A. I got an A in coursework and definately got an A in SDME maybe higher and i just want a A in this exam and i think i can do it. My goal is to get 999 for all 9 markers

I got me an A* in coursework. I reckon I did well in the SDME too. I just need to nail this paper so that I can get an A overall if not an A*. This is the most important paper for me.

I like the aspect of Human Geography, but rivers and coasts? No way. Too science related!

Aim higher, if you limit your threshold at a grade B. You could potentially drop to a grade C.
