    Ahh man, thats the same here, looked up at the clock and want expecting there to be only 15 mins left.. :'( Well done though

    our group wasnt keen on the lack of metamorphic/igneous questions as thats what we had all prepared for.. it seemed to be all sedimentary!

    Google image search 'Greywacke texture' and the exact image used is one of the first results.

    I thought overall it was an ok paper, Was not terrible but was not easy either. I thought the questions on p and s waves and the fossil questions were probably the nicest section out of it all. I thought some of the first questions were quite difficult and one of the questions on the last page about the beds etc. The structure did not have the best picture in my peronal opinion however i came to the conclusion that it was a flute cast (not sure if correct), it just seemed like the most logical answer. How did you find the paper??

    I put life, but in the mark schemes it usually lets you have either as long as you back it up with the right reasons
