Um i dont think so
What should we be doing to prepare for the booklet section of the exam?
Do we need to memorise any data from our fieldwork?

Is it bad that we haven't been on any fieldwork trip and our teacher is lying to AQA telling them we have? We also haven't learnt any describing/analysis of data...

Surely we can make it up, it’s not like they’re gonna find us and ask if we lied or not

Yeah I’m pretty sure your school had to sign some document for Aqa saying that you’ve been on an urban and a physical fieldwork trip, so it is slightly bad. But I’ve heard that you can make up data, as long as it is not too wild and can’t pass as believable. Good luck for tmrw

im doing coastal protection as my fieldwork. if longshore drift is from left to right and there's smaller rocks in sites to the right compared to sites to the left, does that mean the coastal protection is working because the big rocks aren't getting moved down the coast?
i would recommend revising a 12 mark answer about if you agree or disagree with the construction of the port
