I didn't like the water and carbon cycle essay.
was it relevant to talk about deforestation (and its impact on carbon budget) for when trees are cleared for farming practices. My other point was on capital-intensive farming

I hope so because I wrote about deforestation too. The question really threw me.

I really don't know. When I read through it at the end I thought I'd done okay but now I'm only thinking about the stuff I did wrong. What about you?

Not great but not terrible. My 6/9 markers were decent but my 20 markers were too basic i think. Grade boundaires are around 65% (worked out excluding NEA) for an A so im hoping thats gonna save me

all my responses for that paper were so messy and unstructured tbh. And with the hazard 20 marker i basically only spoke about the australian wildfires in 2019 and nothing else oops
