I have trouble structuring my answer for these types of questions and was wondering if anyone knows a structure for each type of question like intro,para 1(whats in para 1 etc) that will get me full marks?
cheers yh I am totally new at this so i have basically no idea....
Is this for physical or human ??
Both would be really helpful!!!
Do you do health and coasts?
I'm getting 10/15 in my 15 markers, im not too sure if that would be good enough to reach an A in GEOG1? I really need an A in geography as a banker of a subject :P. but my issues is just i don't put enough down.
I do Rivers,coasts,population change,energy
I only study pop and rivers out of your 4 choices it would be a lot easier if you could send me a question just so I can structure a plan around that because it's too vague to just give a generalised plan, happy to help though!
cheers she-ra! and wedikorb:Physical factors are more important than human factors in affecting river discharge.
Just realised after writing it that I set it out as if the question would be 'physical factors are more important than human factors to what extent do you agree'
So in an introduction I would state when a flood occurs (when discharge exceeds bank full capacity) give a little bit of an intro about general stuff about floods so say physical factors are weather, vegetation and human are urbanisation etc make it no more than 3-4 lines as the introduction isn't that important it's just to set what you're going to talk about
Then because it's saying physical factors are more important than human you have the decision to choose whether you want to focus your essay on physical or human. Personally I would say physical is more important for causing river discharge
now I would bring in my first point such as circular drainage basins- discuss that and then talk about a human cause and say how It has less of a significant effect
whichever you choose to have a greater cause on river discharge you have to stick to it throughout the essay otherwise you'll lose marks
lastly, for the conclusion you will say which has the biggest impact and just quickly summarise why and maybe put a point about how it could be managed
I hope my explanation makes sense not sure if it does! I did a very similar 15 marker which was the same layout question and got 15 marks following this layout so hope it helps
Thank you so much Wedikorb!!!! my teacher was mentioning something about a "critical comment" do you know what that is? if so how would you use it for this exam question?
Any chance you could send them to me also please?
