Good but I completely ran out of time in the 15 mark Changing Places essay. Did you do glaciated landscapes or coastal landscapes?

Good actually! Really happy with the coasts questions, but the 15 markers for places were not nice to choose😅

Anyone who did coasts what did you put for the first questions? I guessed that one was a rockslide and one was a slump but I couldn’t really tell! I thought the coasts 15 markers were nice, also did anyone else find the stats test insignificant!

I found it 99% significant I think. Doesn’t seem like anyone else does glaciation....

I said there might be more dominant issues e.g transport, varying dependence on online advertising for tourism and dormitory villages where there are few businesses in the rural area. I kinda botched it tbh, I should’ve mentioned age of residents.

So for the next exam I think there will be something on feedback loops
But for the last Q the synoptic one I’m struggling to know how to revise. What type of Q counsel come up???

I feel like maybe the 20 marker will include feedback loops since there hasn't been any questions focusing on that specifically.

For the synoptic question it is hard to revise for, but with the knowledge you have from across the course you don't need a huge amount of detail in order to get the high marks. The structure I tend to use, which has got me nearly top marks (28/30) in class recently is to first analyse the source, then include a couple of sentences of your own knowledge to explain the source, using key terminology of the specialist concepts (resilience, mitigation, causality, thresholds etc.) and repeat this for each source. Then to round off the essay, either a paragraph or two, purely on your own knowledge to give an answer to the question.

Hopefully that's clear😅

But for the last Q the synoptic one I’m struggling to know how to revise. What type of Q counsel come up???
For the sample paper, the synoptic question choice was between:
Assess the severity of the different risks that cities increasingly face
To what extent could the management of different risks lead to changes in the characteristics of urban places?

However for last year's paper (2018) had these two questions:
To what extent can change be prevented in rural areas?
‘In rural areas, physical geography is a more important cause of change than human geography.’ Discuss this statement

So I think if a good way to revise this section is to have a go at some of these (if you haven't already attempted any of them in class!) and then just use the mark scheme to see how you did/work through the question if you're unsure of how to approach it :)

Thanks that’s really helpful.
Just to check something- when you say your structure starts with analysing the source - you mean the material they give u in the question?
Our school ran out if teaching time so we haven’t done practice Qs and had to do one topic ourselves!

I think that I am most nervous for the component 2 paper. I hate Water & Carbon and the 21st Century Challenges question can literally be on anything so its meh...... Does anyone have any ideas what could potentially come up for Water & Carbon?

My guess is one of these :
Consequences of change within and between the water and carbon cycles including cryosphere feedbacks, marine carbon feedbacks, terrestrial carbon feedbacks and methane feedbacks

 The implications of feedback within and between the two systems for life on Earth, including Arctic permafrost thawing

I know that AQA (I think it was them) had a beautiful question on there water & carbon paper. Let's hope that Eduqas are just as nice....

In Paper 1 for the spearmans rank ( glaciation) I put 3.25 for the difference but it should have been -3.25. Do you think id get the mark?
