    Yes because they may be smiliar question that comes in the exam
    But who'd mark it?
    I seem to come up with similar points to the mark scheme most times but I guess it's the way I write it that's a problem :/

    Does anybody even do unequal spaces and extreme weather I feel like nobody does, so the questions may be relatively easy (in comparison to CC and RP) **IMPORTANT NOTE** anybody doing CC and RP, I was in the same position as you, literally had no idea about what to do for them, and literally payed no attention to my fieldwork and my Phys geography teacher doesn't teach, but the revision guide 'grammar12' posted on this thread SAVED me, I'm so confident about the exam now, anybody who wants the revision guide should look through this thread (where it's been posted multiple times) and print it and literally just go through every page with a highlighter , it's the best revision for unit 2, im honestly so grateful for it

    As long as statistics are believable, you can say pretty much anything. If you know the population of california is around 40 million, if you put 42 million, it doesnt matter, because you don't have to reference your statistics, you could have different data to someone else (or the data could be old etc) what they are looking for is detailed responses that meet the AOs.

    My teachers are both examiners and they both say they don't care about if a student has lied about stats, (although one did say a student put the population of california was 500 million when asked why rapid population change can worsen hazards, although he didnt lose marks, he didnt get the mark for that point because the stat was ridiculous and didnt help his argument).

    If its a local case study it really doesnt matter because the examiner is not going to research something about a local area just to prove a student wrong, they want to give you marks, not take them away.

    UMS is your best friend, 9/15 is a good mark, with UMS it should be a high B

    use examiner report give you an example of how to write a very good answer, try copy the format. Try to do 3 methods for fieldwork and 3 for research and try to relate to the question focus.
