    Did anyone else think the population 4 marker (comment on...) and the one after on economic impacts of ageing populations (both in reference to the Figure) were essentially the same question?
    I thought this, I wrote the first answer and turned the page and wrote basically the same, but more developed. I looked back at the 4 marker after I seen the 7 marker and realised it was more to do with how it impacts age structure. So, im thinking writing something along the lines of a top heavy population pyramid and potential ageing population would have been more in line with what they wanted

    what case study did people use for the population 15 marker?
    Anti-natalist Thailand- knew it more than pro-natalist France. Said it was theoretically quite sustainable and used aspects of casestudy to back up (govt thought about and accounted for religion with monks blessing contacetion, they considered future generations with educating kids, micro credit schemes support local communities as well) then in the conclusion i mentioned that the fertility rate was now below retainment level (2.1) meaning it might not be sustainable as could end up with ageing population

    missed a 15 marker and answered all the 4/5 markers in a hurry without time to think

    other than that I think the questions that i did answer were good answers which is more important

    Idek tbh

    Rivers was absolutely horrible, missed the water balance question and 15 marker (hydraulic radius really??????)
    Coasts was brillianr, nice 15 marker and I even drew a diagram for the headlands and bays question :thumbsup:
    Population was ok, got confused on 15 marker but then realised I could use Chinas one chid policy
    Energy wasn't great, did 15 marker wrong and crossed it out, had to do bullet points

    Not sure if I've done better than last time, would really like a C, hopefully I'm just being pesimisstic and I actually did decent

    How did you all find the exam? Wtf was that rivers 15marker?
    I know right! I didn't like the rivers 15 marker, I couldn't think of that many things to say, as well as for the population one
    i liked the energy one though

    Anyone else think the grade boundaries could possibly be quite low? Was 65 last year for an A, which is pretty typical looking at what it was in the years before. I think the fact only people resitting could sit this paper might lower it down to around 60. This is what has happened in my other subjects, history for example, where an A dropped by 6/7 marks last year because the only people sitting were resitters. On top of this, I thought some of the questions were pretty hard, which could lower it further. Fingers crossed.

    It's possible, but that would mean that quite a few people will have had to have done really badly. And I don't think it was as hard as the 2016 paper, so I'm not sure. But I get where you're coming from.

    I just used the UK - pensions schemes, pro-natal, immigration etc. Though lots of my friends used one child policy. Both of which should be allowed.

    Not always the case... Economics Unit 1/2 both went up despite only being sat by candidates always resitting.
