I Don't think it'll be too bad, the grade boundaries are bound to be low too as its first year of the new spec

I found it okay-ish? Liked the 25 marker but wasn't a fan of that question on tidal with the equation. Wbu

I think it went ok, could’ve been much worse. 25 marker was a godsend🤩 surprised ozone depletion didn’t come up, hope the grade boundaries are low though, my maths isn’t great😬
That tidal power one was disgusting, didn’t sign up for physics

Literally, like I think we had to convert J to MW in that equation which I have no clue how to do :s-smilie:

does anyone remember how the carbon cycle 9 mark question was phrased?
Was it to protect the cycle or how humans are affecting the cycle?
Was that the one about using the carbon cycle in the circular economy to make human activities more sustainable?

whats everyone predicting/hoping to come up in the exam?
A 25 marker on the environmental impacts of fishing and how they can be reduced would be alright

I would love a 25 marker on environmental impacts of aquaculture compared to agriculture
Reply 19
Maybe one on how abiotic factors affect agriculture and how it can be influenced by humans
