prediction for weather question?
I have a feeling there may be a question on how cities affect local climates or the UK weather (its unpredictability)

For me (physical pathway)
I think that for tectonics it could be something to do with volcanic activity (last year was earthquakes)
Ecosystems could be something on conserving biodiversity
Weather and Climate: UK weather and it’s unpredictability or urban microclimates

I’m sorry I can’t help with the other themes!

Does anyone else do "Energy Challenges and Dilemmas"? It seems that this is one that fewer people do....

I thought the paper was Ok. I did Energy and then Weather & Climate and suppose they were decent. It’s just timing that was kinda an issue.... I finished all questions but could’ve written a whole load more to be honest...

I was happy with the paper, I thought the questions were very forgiving which was nice!

I agree with the timing, I could’ve written so much more but I did manage to finish with decent conclusions so I’m happy!

Hope everyone else found it okay?

I was expecting the questions to be really tricky... but they were actually alright.

That went a whole lot better than component 2!!

Which tectonic question did everyone choose?

I chose the second tectonics one about volcanic hazards predictability and the losses caused by human mismanagement
