It was a very odd paper. I did questions 1, 3 and 7 and it really was strange. First of all, where were all the case studies? That needs to be answered. Anyway, the paper was definitely different to past papers but it was doable and I think I've done okay.

Did 1, 5 and 7. Quite a strange paper - very few case studies. Luckily a lot of the exam was to my strengths (monitoring volcanoes, 3 and 4 marker on hydrographs). Let's hope for low boundaries!

I did questions 1, 4 and 5. Same for me, there were practically no case studies, apart from a 3 marker "tsunami" question.

I found it pretty weird, i did water on the land, what do you guys put for the 8 marker on sustainable water usage, I put about deficit and surplus but most people in my school talked about Three Gorges Dam? Not really sure.

Ok can someone go through the 8 markers for the test for Restless Earth, Ice and Water On Land? I failed them completely and feel like THE SKETCH MAP FOR THE ICE GLACIER WAS HORRENDOUS

I did 1, 5 and 7. 5 was definitely the worst of the three for me.

Pretty easy tbh. I did restless earth, ice on land and coastal erosion. Most of the case studies came up so it was good. Restless earth is the easiest imo.
