    Mine was a retake too, really needed to maximise my ums with this exam. Thought I would do the tourism essay but hated it so went for energy instead. This screwed me up because I hadnt looked at the smaller topics on tourism. Also literally didn't revise 2 topics for urban and 1 of them came up!!

    same really needed to boost my mark! Some of the questions were worded really strangely and found I was just kind of guessing quite a lot! Just hoping that everyone found it difficult so the grade boundaries go down

    I just put about it being near the road and a few km from the larger town and tourists could cause congestion, wasn't really sure, they weren't too bad though

    I'm sure it will be fine, they will just mark the first one, there's no point worrying about it now- there's nothing you can do! I'm sure we've all done fine, good luck with your result!!

    okay aha i used mexico city for urban growth and problems with polluting the underground aquifer, newcastle for decline and talking about the lack of maintenance on the river tyne due to a lower tax base to fund the council leading to increased pollution from litter and china with industrial growth and eutrophication etc.

    aha, well the first urban questions were ok, the i think i mightve lost a mark or two on the second 6 marker for changes in types of tourism, i spoke about business tourism, then an increase in package holiday which has led to less domestic and more international holidays but i think that could be irrelevant:/ and the energy essay was ok but i forgot to define management in the intro, you?
