Same with you , I didn’t like the 9 marker on transport , I added on lots of crap but it wasn’t a good question. Overall the paper was decent , I found paper 1 a lot more fun and easier to do

When I first saw it I was a little confused based on the first 6 marker but as I went along I found it decent. The 9 markers were okay but one of the 2 markers got me confused , the one where you had to look at those bicycles and find impacts , bc it seemed obvious which exam boards don’t usually do ?¿ .

yh i also found that too simple.. and the four marker on tourism was puzzling too since it gave you all the answers in a diagram so was wondering if perhaps there was more to it? i wrote about tourism in jamaica

if you did correct links to the question and correct reasoning just no specific facts you could hopefully get 7/9 im thinking.. the transport one i said HS2 reduces commuting time so can bring southern wages to manchester, hence more income, hence more tax, hence more to spend on improving economy by education etc

I wrote hospitals too small=long waiting lists=health conditions worsten

And only way to get to hospital is transport, due to long distances, which is inaccessible to most due to price

i just said countries with 15-24.5% of the population undernourished are generally located in the South of Asia near the coast except Mongolia which is the anomaly

I wrote similar things for the 9 mark transport question! For the NEE traffic was it about traffic congestion and air pollution? I did Nigeria and talked about oil (same for TNC one) which links to pollution but for traffic I was unsure so I wrote how they must not have sufficient public transport. I’m not sure that’s right but I had to write something

Questions weren’t that hard for me, but trying to finish everything in time really was. I missed out a few low mark questions
