    How did you do in geo hl? In my school the highest grade was 6 and only one person got it. There must have been something wrong with my geo teacher..

    I don't immediately know of anyone here who did HL - I did SL a year ago (first year of the new syllabus) and got a 7. I was a bit lucky though as I screwed up the coursework.

    The thing is that there were a lot of 7s on SL in my school this year.. There were also some 7s predicted on HL and so I was quite suprised when I saw the results.

    I got a 7! Geography HL this year- people that got lower grades I think its a result of the length of the papers...

    I got 5 in geo hl but i wasn't hoping to get any better. Did you chose the question with map? (it was the last part i guess) I did and now i guess i was wrong.

    I always do the map question- easy marks you should almost always get 18-9/20 for it!

    strange.. the only person who got 6 (the only one) in my class never got a 7 on the mock exam while those who often got 7s on mocks got 5 or even less on their final exam..
