    Ah yes now I realised I put 138 and 1912. Although I might have put 136 but I'm pretty sure I put those.
    The examiner will probably accept a range such as 136-139 etc because it wasn't 100% clear

    Unofficial grade boundaries

    - Generally the exam was seen to be easier than previously years, namely 2014.
    - Most people found the fair trade 5 marker, and the 4 marker on 'iHub' the most challenging in section A.
    - Many people struggled to identify two natural causes of short term climate change.
    - Question 7 was the most popular question in section B.
    - Question 10 was the most avoided question in section B.

    A - 67 (64-69)
    B - 61 (57-62)
    C - 56 (54-57)
    D - 51 (48-52)
    E - 47 (44-49)

    I checked my revision notes and the answers were Volcanic Eruptions and something to do with Solar Output and how the Earth orbits the sun???
    Meteor impacts could also be one

    I found the exam average. I would expect the boundaries to be higher than last year but not massively. I also answered question 10 from part B

    I think it will definitely matter because the question specifically asked for the impact on host countries.

    I named the UK hosting Polish/EU migrants and I also named Spain hosting UK pensioners who have migrated.


    That's exactly what I did

    That is what I put, as the example in the middle said 'decreased' and didn't reference figures so should be enough, definately

    Wow well done! Im really bad at coasts though I don't understand the questions half the time.

    Do you have any tips?

    Also the answer for the short term thing was volcanic activity and sunspots. I made a bunch of notes off of mark schemes and I remember for sunspots they wrote that it is an 11 year cycle linked to short term climate change - edexcels words.

    I didn't think it had anything to do with the tipping point as it said human activities and how it contibuted to the enhanced greenhouse effect. so enviromental degradation less carbon sinks, more demand for transport meaning more fossil feuls burned, and more up and coming NIC which means more industry so more fossil feuls burned and so2 causes degradation. I think thats it IDK
    I wrote the exact same thing really, I ignored positive feedback and tipping point cause I presumed human meant they wanted nothing natural:| hoping that was what they wanted!

    For short term causes of climate change you could have chosen between 3 options; Volvanic activity/eruptions , sunspots, or meteor/asteroid impact

    Completely bull****ted that one, put something like the locals may be too poor to buy the products + they rely heavily on exports and something else but I'm trying to forget it hahaha
