speaking on my experience of the paper, I think it went quite well probably 75-80 marks. the first 9 (12) marker was annoying due to how specific it was but I did retain enough own knowledge for it. the six markers were all blessings and i cooked on that transportation nine marker.
the only question that really confused me this time was the one marker on the direction of the photographer idk i put east
put south fr what was that qs, i checked all directions bro

n+1/2 is the formal way of finding the midpoint (add the total number of elements in the list, which was 9, to 1 and halve it so it's the fifth highest value)
but dw 6030 was right lol

Thx mate!

hi there for the median q, i ordered the numbers in increasing values then i canceled them out equally until i found the middle value. if im right, was there no need to do n+1/2? pls let me know, my asnwer was i think 6030 something?

there was no need to do that formula, you did the question correctly

Just a general q to everyone, I always try to estimate at the last few minutes of my paper to think what possible mark i wouldve got in today's paper. As of my best estimates, i believe I got somewhere around 60-65/88 marks.
What have you guys got according to you? Dw all its just an estimate! im sure everybody will be fine!

I do this aswell and think I got around the same! A bit lower than paper 1 (I think i got 75-80) but still enough for a 9 I hope!

I did the London one, what did you put down for that as evidence? I primarily talked about how the population is high (requiring 60,000 houses a year) and therefore a lot of water is wasted through washing machines etc
Well for the water one I had no idea, so started talking about Rajasthan in India since it was briefly mentioned in section C of my revision guide (ik im so cooked in both 9 markers), but my P1 was about how houses in London are built with double glazed window and loft/attic insulation to reduce heat loss/save energt
that paper was alr but the 9 markers were horrible. i literally messed rlly badly on so many questions like thats probably the worst geo paper ive ever done 😭 for the water and energy 9 marker i screwed up soo bad i accidentally wrote abt stuff from section c and methods to conserve water and energy and stuff bcs i had like 10 minutes left... im gonna drop so many marks bro😭😭

the one abt energy and water was abt cities in lics/nees so your London paragraph doesn't answer the question and Rajasthan is a region but could count. There was never any mention of a case study in the question so there wasnt actually a need to put one in, just talk abt methods eg for water you can say water metres, recycling, turning off taps. For energy stuff like public transport, turning off lights, renewables. I mentioned Curitiba too

I think I remember that question. I forgot what I wrote but I do remember writing 2 paragraphs for that.
Hey what did you say for the 4 marker on manufacturing in your country? It was the one after shading in your country. I spoke about the TNCs and all that. Is that fine?
