I found it quite difficult too! Which sections did you? I did Coasts and Plate tectonics. I found the case study questions ok(ish) but I felt like they were trying to throw me off and catch me out on all the other questions. Definitely harder than usual. I reckon the A* grade boundary will be 38/39.

No, paper 1 and 2 are both out of 50, not 75. So 38/50 for that paper. I don't know what the overall grade boundary will be though as we haven't even done paper 2 or 3.

i did ecosystems and restless earth, which was so annoying with the case studies because i ran out of time for the 8 marker on deserts. I feel like the grade boundaries will be around 35/36 mainly judging from what everyone has said now and also looking back at past papers as it was a lot more challenging than last years?

Wasn't sure I put more large rocks and more tiny rocks as they collide more during a storm

Was that the 8 marker on the effects of coastal erosion? I used holderness coast in Yorkshire but was quite close for time so didn't check any of the questions

I used Holbeck Hall but my friends are saying that they used Holderness so I'm a bit anxious
