I have a feeling that a question regarding coastal development over time will come up for the crowded coast section - 15 marker

How would i go about answering that question?

the fieldwork i did was in Dorset

Thanks

I think write about the development in Dubai, it is a good case study to use.

You only need to write about the fieldwork when specifically asked in the 15 markers.

I'm so screwed for this exam. Have not revised geography unit 2 since last Thursday because I've had exams every single day since study leave ended. My philosophy exam was 3hrs long yesterday so I didn't get home until 5:30 then had to revise English which I have this morning.

I'm exhausted and I know nothing!!!

It is an afternoon exam , so just try to go over your fieldwork stuff, like what you did and what you found, it doesnt really matter if you mae things up as long as they sound realisitc it should be fine. what two topics are you doing?

Do you think it's easier to make up than unit 1? Think I did ok on unit 1 as I was well prepared for that one...

For CC we went to Torquay & start bay (in Torbay area) and for rebranding we went to Plymouth and the Southhams.

It's the case study questions I'm most worried about because I have literally zero own knowledge at this point though I agree I could probably make up the f&r question. Any predictions for what the case study questions will ask?

I prefer unit 1, it wasnt too bad.yes we did too, did you go to Dartington and Stokely farm for rebranding?
for the rebradning case studies im just learning The Eden project and Stratford and that should be okay and for CC do the Holderness coast and just go through some sustainable management but that's GCSE knowledge so its fine. you should be fine and its only 40%

Haha omg yes we did!! Except we didn't have time to go to Dartington so we just have to pretend to have been there lol. Right, I'll try and get Holderness, Eden & Stratford in my brain before 1:30. Thanks and good luck!

I'm assuming you mean the fieldwork one? I used a different case study although my friend lent me her Plymouth notes.
