    Did anyone else do Q7 for the 10/15 markers? For 7b I wrote in a lot of detail about both El Niño and La Niña, as well as talking specifically about how London floods due to physical factors and linked this in to a human factor of urban impermeability...
    How many do you think I will get out of 15 for that?

    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.
    Just to practise past papers! It helps a lot, focusing on methodology and research.

    Astronomical Forcing is long term climate change e.g Orbital eccentricity is 100,000 years. So probably not sorry.

    What did everyone write for transport encouraging globalisation? Think it was 4/5 marks
    Transport allows the easier transfer of goods, this means there is an easier flow of trade and thus increasing economic integration between countries. Firms can travel abroad and make more efficient business transfers this allows more TNC and firms to invest in other countries and thus encourage FDI, therefore encouraging globalisation.

    I'm a year 13 student, re-doing unit one geography - I got a D last year in unit 1 (re-marked to a low C) and an A in unit 2 - came to a high C overall. Still got offers from KCL, Newcastle, Exeter.

    Edit - I'm applying for Geography

    There is universities that has lower grade requirements so you will be able to geography at university still such as CCC or BBC. Also if you think you did bad in this one just workers harder in the other units and push your grade up! Just don't doubt yourself and work hard

    I thought this was a pretty good paper compared to last year. The only few things I didn't like were (along with the rest of us) the Fairtrade question and also the economic impacts not including agriculture in Africa (I put major flooding in Gambia leading to massive loss of infrastructure and business incomes because the country is basically one massive river). The developments in transport question was good I thought (low cost flights for air travel, pan-Chinese highways for cars and the Suez canal leading to India for shipping).

    Also Question 7 was rather tough. For A, I used Japan as an MDC which reduces risk as they can combat the effects, Haiyan for the Philippines using Manila and Luzon and also using Nepal as a brief topical point. 7B I said El Niño and La Niña as well as the whole 5°-25° north and south of the equator/Coriolis effect thing Section B has never been my strong point - did anyone else put anything similar??

    Think I wrote about intervening obstacles being overcome such as UK and France eurostar means ocean can be crossed increasing trade in these countries. Cheap flights connect most people in UK to rest of world. Also said about distances seeming shorter because of good transport creating shrinking world. Not sure if my answer was that relevant
