I thought the questions were harder than previous years but the case studies were ok (at least the population one was)

I thought theme 3 questions were difficult

So do i. Population was easy, weather and climate just the same (because I revised it). I had to invent some stuff for theme 3 on agriculture and energy, but I hope it goes unnoticed. I am praying for an a star.

Haha, I just felt that they merged different sections of the syllabus into each section which they didn't do in previous years. So with the weather and climate one I missed it out cause I couldn't remember the weather instruments

Geography wasn't too bad imo.

What questions did everyone do?

I struggled with theme 3 - specifically the 5 marker on question 6 about why conservation is important (paraphrasing). I know its common sense but I just went so blank

I hope Friday's paper is easy. Anyone know how to revise for the skills paper?

I go blank on all the questions and then regain my 'lost knowledge' right after the exam -__- it's really annoying.
I've found some good tips about how to answer the questions on Friday's paper but otherwise it's just analysing and using maps

I found the case studies okay. I did question 1 and Tanzania; question 3 and Felixstowe; question 5 and Nike. The coastal erosion one I had absolutely no idea on it at all, so I made one up.

They also divide your score for paper 1 by 1.77 to give it's weighting

yeh i found that pretty hard, then i found out someone from our school did 1,3 and 4, and i bet he's not the only one, I swear you were meant to answer 1 question from 1 and 2, 1 question from 3 and 4, and 1 question from 5 and 6.
