    I did restless earth, water on the land and ice on the land. Don't worry about it - the grade boundaries are actually surprisingly low for an A*. Last year's physical paper grade boundary for an A* was 45/75 which is only 60%!

    I thought that went well?? Restless Earth was a godsend and i also do Coasts and Ice on the land which were both okay. The only thing i found weird was the annotated sketch map on ice on the land... oh and the 8 markers were worded weirdly- where were the case studies What did you guys find difficult xx

    I did restless earth and ice on land too !! (And living world) and I absolutely hated the 8 mark questions especially the one with figure 2a and 2b and the car ?? Also I hated the drawing question and the one about Chamonix' tourism impact

    the volcano eruption one i found easy? wasn't it just effects of a volcano, linking to like cats and buildings destroyed?
    yeah, the drawing was crap 😅 and the one about glacial retreat? but other than that it wasn't too bad x

    I thought it was really easy. I did Restless Earth, Water on the Land, and the Coastal Zone.

    The question I got confused on was the 3 mark one about mass movement in the Coastal Zone - the one where you have to give 'evidence' in Figure 20 or whatever it was.

    I did
    Restless Earth,
    The Coastal Zone,
    and Water on the Land,

    And not even one case study question came up so all that time was wasted!
    I found restless earth pretty easy but water on the land was okay and I found coasts okay except for labelling the spit's features.

    I used a reservoir case study for that to support my answer and included social, economic and environmental effects of its construction. Not sure if that was the right thing to do though :/

    Case study of a scheme which manages water. My case study is Kielder Reservoir. It was a 'discuss' question so both positives and negatives had to be discussed.
