What is likely to be the A* boundary? I've estimated my mark to be between 65 and 72.

What did everyone out for the poor and rich flooding case study. I only listed the effects and didn't say why they were worse in the poor. How many marks could I get ??

I did exactly the same 3 sections as you. I was so relieved as I looked through this paper, honestly. I was so nervous before going in. I finished all my 6&8 markers to a good 6-7mark standard I believe much easier than I thought. Let's see paper 2

I put about limited communications, terracing (steep relief), farming animals on steep parts of the mountains as they're used to it and poor soils.

Does anybody know why the grade boundaries for this paper are so low(between 45 and 55) for an A* as it really isn't that difficult?

The grade boundaries are moveable. They vary each year depending on how well the questions have been answered. So with an easy, straight-forward paper that people do well on, the boundaries go up. In a tough paper where people do less well the boundaries go down. I would expect them to be higher this year than they have been for a long time.

I know that however for the most part the A* boundary is no higher than 70% where as in other subjects it usually sits at around 85% seems strange is all

@pastelmittens the 8 mark question for the fold mountain was asking for how people have adapted to the mountain. So shouldn't answer be about how they have improved farming and tourist attraction

YES.How they improved the steep slopes for farming in the Andes by building terraces and using llamas for transport.
Also, I talked about how only 4% of rural communities have access to electricity.
People have adapted by building micro-hydro plants to provide them with electricity.
