    It was actually a pretty good paper. I sort of messed up the river and coasts case study but the rest of it was really good. That meanders questions was a
    Dream. What did you circle for the question about whether California was prepared?

    I'm not too sure how I feel about it to be honest! It wasn't the worst paper but it wasn't the best either. The question on the natural climatic cycle threw me off because I joined my class 3 weeks late because I dropped art so I don't remember revising it at all and ended up writing about how the sun sends out short wave radiation to heat up the atmosphere So I know I've already lost 3 marks aha

    I thought it was okay and I think i got a B in it but I'm predicted to get an A so I'm going to have to really work hard for the human paper! A few questions threw me off but the case studies were really good. I was really expecting the case study on a flood within the British Isles to come up though because it hasn't came up as a 6 marker in a few years so I learnt it really well agh and I circled that the people of California weren't prepared, what did you choose?

    For the natural climatic question, I wrote that the earths orbit may have changed and it moved towards the sun making it hotter. I also wrote about volcanic activity and how it decreased temperatures

    I didn't write anything about volcanic activity because there was a separate bullet point on that on the spec! I wrote about how the sun sends down radiation to the earths surface and how it's trapped in pollution so it can't escape and heats up the atmosphere but I know it's completely wrong!

    Volcanic activity is right because i spoke about it with my teacher afterwards! And yeah I circled that the people of California weren't prepared too, it's only an opinion question so as long as you used 2 pieces of evidence from the text they can't really mark you wrong
