Who else sat AQA's geography paper today?
I did and it was the first time I've ever run out of time to answer every question. I missed out a 4-marker, and a 9-marker. I knew the answers, just ran out of time. Anyone else feel like we didn't have enough time?

I found it long but pretty easy - I managed to answer all of the questions in about 1 hour 20 (1 hour 30 min exam) and usually i finish a 1hr 45 min exam in around 1hr 10.... so Im a quick writer but nearly ran out of time with this.

I do coasts and rivers, and for the 9 marker i wrote about Svalbard - tourism, mining, fishing etc.


If anyone can remind me other questions then ill let you know how i answered, but i cannot remember any x

I was able to complete the whole paper but my answers definitely weren't as good as they could have been. Lots of people at my school felt the same way though, so I think the grade boundaries will most likely be lower than usual.

I agree, only just finished. What did everyone put for the Multiple choice with the biomes?

Look at Figure X. Which of these statements is TRUE.

I literally didn't know if the true one was "Most of the world's area of hot desert is in the southern hemisphere" or "the largest single area of tropical rainforest is in South America"

There was definitely more desert area in the south, but also I'm sure the rainforest was true, unless the S.E Asian islands count as a "single area".

I put the deserts in the end. it's true based on the figure. If AQA want a scrap over it I'm ready

Shorter version but said building with impermeable materials as well as the steepness of the hills and the impermeable rock could increase run off. This would increase the peak discharge and decrease lag time.
