Overall not bad, The structure was a bit tricky, took me a bit to figure out it was a reverse fault. The part about the plateau rising an Strontium ratios was a bit confusing. Drawing the dip-slip fault for the map with the right beds took me a while too, and I probably made some mistakes in the part about gravity anomalies, wasn't expecting an entire question based around it. The quarry question seemed relatively simple,

I thought it was ok overall, the structure seems to be the main issue. Question 6 was hardly a section B style but I'm not complaining.

I made mistakes on the high or low energy environment, i drew the cross section as a normal fault as the theta maximum was vertical downward

Also the question on water content of rocks it could be either raises or lowers melting point as water in the rocks would cool the magma therefore lowering the melting point of the rock, or it could raise it as it takes longer for it to cool, but water in terms of 1300 degrees celcius will have little effect

I thought it was a bad paper:/ a lot of similar questions not a lot of variation in the paper and some weird questions like labelling the quarry at the end?

I haven't seen or heard anyone who was happy about the paper so that's not a good sign:/

Hopefully grade boundaries might be lower though if most people didn't do great...hopefully...

What were you meant to label on it? I put about how landslip could occur and some of the engineering like tree planting was a confusing question

I had no idea so ended up labelling annotating anything I could think of, really didn't like the paper, felt completely different to the practice papers I had revised.

I labelled stuff to do with engineering and like the dip and how that affects it but I really didn't know what it wanted:/ I agree it was completely different to any other paper which obviously it's meant to be but you could not prepare for some of the questions
