We were not given advance information. The board gave us the option to not do one of the topics in Paper 2. This means instead of the usual 94 marks, we can only get up to 64 marks because we don't need to answer a whole section. What section we don't do is decided by each school but the exam board itself gave schools the 2 options. I hope that makes sense.
They didn't do anything else for the other 2 papers :/

do you happen to remember the 8-marker for weather and climate? was it "evaluate the statement: human activities are the main cause of global climate change"?

i'm overthinking everything i did because i put volcanism and the cooling effect of ashes as like a counterpoint, so if its "global warming" instead of "global climate change" i'm kinda ****ed lol

Hi,
Yes that was the question, not global warming.

I mean, at least you answered it!!! I only probably wrote a full answer for the waterfall 8 marker and the rest are umm let's say incomplete lol.

I hate Physical Geography, I do so much better in Human Geography, it's a shame it isn't worth 94 marks but in fact 64 for us.

You'll be fine. I do hope you achieve a grade you'll be happy with, and best of luck in your other exams :smile:
Did you guys remember to do a conclusion for every 8 marker? I even did one for the waterfalls and gorges question.
The only question i was confused on was the 2 mark map question with that weird graph (i think one was a tick box and the other part to the question was name a location).
I reckon i got an 8-9 overall on the paper.
