    how did everyone find it?? I found it quite good but I am worried that I did last question of urban wrong. It said to explain how urban living can be made more sustainable. I mentioned using brownfield sites, conservering historic buildings, open spaces and reducing waste. Because it didnt say to include a case study but I did mention a brief example. Can I still get more than 6 marks as it didnt say use your own knowldge either

    You did it right, it didn't mention that you needed to use a case study so if it's in detail you should get at very minimum 5 out of 8

    I'm really worried now, I did something completely different. I just used the case study I learnt for a sustainable city (Curitiba) and wrote about what they have done and stuff

    that map thing for the bus cyle stuff? I put it was topological because I guessed it as I saw some examinor report saying that it must be learnt and just assumed it was that. What did you put?

    I put topological too! I didn't know what it was but I knew it was not chloropleth or whatever as that is the coloured shading one and I knew it was not isoline as that is the one with the rings and numbers on them and it was neither

    That's what I sort of did, I'm pretty sure it's right as long as you mentioned anything about the historical sights or transport or recycling

    Curitiba is definitely correct, I asked my teacher. Think the exam went well, population and urban easy, development gap poor especially the 6 marker at the start. Overall hoping for 70+/84 to make up for the woeful physical paper
