Definition questions on subduction and conservative plate boundaries? Or the question on the role of water in mass movements on slopes? Did u draw any diagrams for the definitions to help you get your point across?

yayy finally ppl who do this board! Yh my whole class did rocks and I was the only one who did rivers, apparently the rocks was good cuz you could smash the 15 marker. I am sure you did fine. I couldnt remember the examples for rocks

didn't do arid sorry, I do coasts and hazardous environments! :smile: Hard to talk to anyone about it because I barely know anyone outside my school that does this exam board haha
I feel you. I spent ages looking on student room that’s why I created one
How’d you find coasts? In my opinion it wasn’t that bad. I answered the management question for the 20 marker wby

What topics do you do?

I do Environmental management and Global interdependence. It was tough but I think it went quite well. Was expecting a 20 marker on tourism for G.I. but there wasn’t one but did debt yesterday so was alright! How about you?
I did the q on energy and climate and also the free trade one
