    The malnutrition one was similar to famine because you could say things like over cultivation leads to desertification and therefore less nutritious food and causing malnutrition. Also you could talk about because a lot of areas in Kenya grow cash crops instead of food for the malnourished. I think it was quite an open question there's loads you could say so don't worry.

    I thought that the 15 markers were the best questions, but that 7 marker just on river terraces was challenging, and the malnutrition and the mass movement questions fingers crossed i've not failed

    i wrote about rapids and potholes, i think you you can write 2 and still get 4 marks as usualky its 2x2.
    I agree. I said that the potholes are evident which are white and have vegetation growing on it. Waterfalls are also evident which are small and reflect the more and less resistant rock geology.

    In the rivers 15 marker on impacts of flooding in 2 contrasting areas, I did a rivers one in a developed country, then by mistake compared that to coastal floods in Southern Asia (developing). I know the topic was rivers, but seeing as the question didn't specify it had to be rivers, and it didn't ask to describe, and I followed the right structure in every other way, will I get heavily marked down for that?

    I think the command word was 'Describe' for question 1 ao therefore a valid description of the landforms is needed

    73% for an A?
    68% for B?
    62-65% for C maybe?
    thats too high, A has always been below 80/120

    I did exactly the same thing haha, wrote about Cockermouth and Japan tsunami...

    overall that actually went alright.. apart from the coasts landslide question and formation of a stack I messed that up big timeeee
    Yeah, same. The question about how mass movement alters a coastline I think messed me up. I got the formation, but the sketch and annotation I think was terrible. Lol. Worst comes to worst, re-sit. (Although I'd like to avoid that!)

    i answered the first question in the food section by mistake instead of energy! Think I was just in too much of a rush I didn't even think before moving onto the next question. If I crossed it out will I sill get marked for my energy section or will I get 0? I'm so worried now

    What did people write about for when talking about the usefulness of the two population measures from the graph? I think they were life expectancy and population density??
    Life expectancy is good as you can see how much a country has developed in terms of healthcare. So, stage 3+.

    Population density is good, as lower population density = lower birthrate which shows advancement in the DTM.

    Yeah, I wrote about waterfalls and potholes too, I mentioned Rapids as there was a lot of white water showing turbulence
    really? i only said rapids and potholes because they didnt look big enough to be waterfalls and there wasn't evidence of gorges

    Yup, waterfalls. Don't forget, that's the upper course, so falling water would count as a small waterfall.

    You'll still get the marks, I should imagine.

    The exam went badly

    River rejuvenation just had to come up, pretty sure we haven't covered the population 15 marker and I think I completely misunderstood the energy one....

    Was it waterfalls and potholes in the first question for rivers?
    Me too don't worry and I think so although I did Rapids
