    How could you get 25 marks on the coast questions they were far to specific 😩

    Asses how human activities effect the coastal environment

    Examine how depositional coastal landforms are created

    Something along them lines I think

    i did the second one, and i wrote about spits and salt marshes, and i wrote about traction for spits and hydraulic action for salt marshes (my mind went blank and i couldnt think of any other depostional processes) and as it said examine in the question, i concluded that traction moves and deposits the most sediment so it's more important

    how did you find it overall? it was the longest exam ive ever done so my hand is killing me

    Yeah I did the one on deposition too. I talked about spits,bars,tombolos,cuspate forelands and a little bit about salt marshes. I talked about longshore drift,suspension etc but I ran out of time tbh.
    I thought it was ok overall,the development question was quite nice, I needed more time though tbh😏

    i did lots of detail on two aspects and an entire page drawing of the holderness coastline, i did china for the second question and i finished just in time, all in all wasnt too bad of an exam, they could have and have done worse in the past
    on average you need 50 or low 50s out of 75 for an A so i think i got that, or at least a B

    I did a fair bit of detail on holderness and drew spurnhead as well. I didn't realise it was 50 for an A😱 That's not too bad, aslong as I get a B I'll be happy though

    It was 50 out of 75 raw marks for an A last year. I reckon grade boundaries might be slightly higher this year.

    Completely agree, it felt like such a long exam. Must have wrote about 25 pages, my hand was in bits at the end! I went for deposition as well, I thought the other question looked too risky.

    I filled in the whole of the first answer booklet and about 30% of the second. It seems strange how grade boundaries have remained constant for G3, despite percentages getting top grades falling year on year.
