coasts: formation of a landform eg. bar/beach
river: formation of interlocking spurs or meanders (only two which haven't come up so far)
effects of flooding eg. Sudan 2007
tectonics: effects of a volcano/earthquake
formation of hotspot? or plate boundary?

Thank you
For rivers the formation question will most likely be Waterfalls as oxbow lakes came up last year (in which meanders formation would be required in that answer)
I think that for coastal landscapes the management case studies will appear
For rivers, flooding case studies
For Tectonics, Effect on an earthquake or volcano

Good luck!

How did everyone do?
I think I got an a* but I know I've definitely lost 8 marks from writing the wrong stuff after comparing with other people. And I would only be allowed to lose 5 more after to get an a*
2014 grade boundaries for unit 2 last year was

56/69 a*
50/69 a
44/69 b
And so on..

I'm not sure how I feel about unit 2 - it's either an A/A* (for the safe side, I'm going to say an A)

If I was to get the following (25% each)

Unit 1: Low A (about 37/56)
Unit 2: High A (about 54/69)
Unit 3: Mid A* (about 60/69)
Unit 4 (Coursework): High A* (46/50)

What would I get overall?
A or A*?

There's an Edexcel excel marks converter on their site somewhere; I just plugged the scores into that.

Grade boundaries will probably remain the same isn't it?

what did people put for the course of the river? I put middle; there seems to be some debate between middle and upper course

Unfortunately I put lower course :/ so stupid didn't see it was an interlocking spur so I've lost 4 marks already
I also lost one mark on the very first question - I put bar instead of spit
That's another Mark
And I lost 3 marks on watery world
This is marks I'm 100% sure I lost
That's 8 marks I'm sure - I can still get in a* if I only lose 5 more! Ahh!
Rant over

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (554)
33.95%
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (674)
41.3%
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (330)
20.22%
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (74)
