    They changed the style of the exam paper for 2014 and beyond (increasing the overall number of marks) from 50 to 78 in Dynamic Planet and People and the Planet. Previously there were only two 6 mark questions in each paper but now there's 4 in addition to an 8 mark question for each of the optional topics. They increased the time allowed for the papers because of this.

    Climate change always seems to come up and I think coasts might this year as well.... Also coral reefs seems to pop up everywhere so I'm revising those!

    I feel reasonably prepared for this paper just a few case studies I'm not sure on and practically the whole volcano topic hoping that doesn't come up! Literally am in so much trouble for P&P paper ... know absolutely nothing...so half term will be fun... What about you?

    Same.
    I feel that volcanoes might come up as a six marker in restless earth. It hasn't come up in so long.
