For me it was ok but for others it was difficult definitely
Are sandbars the feature that join 2 headlands together and form a lagoon behind them? I thought that the question about falling death rates was an interesting choice because some people would have already explained that in the previous question with the population pyramids! How did you all find the matching glaciated features? Wasn't the factors affecting temperature question in UK worth an additional mark this year?

Factors affecting temperature was surprising as they asked it quite recently and it was a five marker but it's usually 4

matching was easy because before u have to give random grid references but this year they didn't

l hope l get A1

I sat the physics exam a few days ago and it was horrible. The questions where very difficult and harder than past papers. How did you find the exam?

do u think the grade boundary will be lower for most of the subjects because there was some disruption at the start of the year and lower than 2022

There was a lot of covid in 2022 so I think the grade boundaries will likely go up for most papers except some may stay the same or fall if the paper was difficult. Don't the grade boundries depend on people's results? I am sorry to hear you had disruptions in your school. Was it because of covid cases or teacher strikes?
