    Well the floodplains suggested it was in the lower course yet there was a v shaped valley meaning rejuvenation. Also there where two meanders where one side was a gentle slope and the opposite had an extreme incline.
    Pretty much. I said something like at the beginning of the meander there was a floodplain, suggesting it is in the lower-middle course, then near the forest there was rejuvenation as a result of steep contours.

    I've done better than my mock - that's for sure. I got a U in that :O

    Can I get marks for using spearmans rank as my method of presentation?
    No, it's a statistical analysis tool. Scatter graphs were most likely your method of presentation.

    That was fine to put, it was basically just asking the research you did before, so which theory, why you chose it, patterns you expected to see. I did human fieldwork so I said Burgess Model, explained the model, looked at census data and police.uk to gather secondary data which would support my hypothesis about deprivation. Explaining the Bradshaw model would get you marks!!!
    Oh no, have i got this wrong then? I put we researched the area to find good locations and get a cover a wide range of area to get good results, also looked up underlying geology to explain and anomalous results etc

    This is unrelated to the actual question papers, but did these papers count towards our AS only and we do a separate A2 next year (As part of the new A level changes) or are these papers half of our whole A level like it has been the past however many years. I read something about geography is a legacy subject and i'm not sure what that means as I just thought all subjects were on this new basis but after reading some of the comments i'm not so sure.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I also talked about researching the characteristics of the area so that we could see if it would be a reliable river etc

    The geog exams you have just done (AS) count towards next years A2 final grade, i think its something like 40%

    and if you are unhappy with either unit 1 or 2 marks you can resit them next year for a higher grade without re-sitting both... Which is a good thing.

    High for both papers i think, probably 68-70 for paper 1 and 39 for paper 2 for A
    Really? Personally I don't think they'll be that high for paper 1 - the highest its been is 63 for a paper which I found much easier than that one. Paper two was relatively straight forward - it tends to stay within 30-38 max but i agree that that one will be quite high this year.

    I'm pretty sure the highest it's been is 75 or 77 for an A
