"I think as long as they understand climatic conditions then they might be ok. But I was concerned about the amount of drought questions! Where were the nice tectonic hazards one (testing through the case study alone I guess!)"
"My initial thoughts were that I thought the paper was more difficult than previous years. Waste of time photocopying all those maps for assessments! As we all do, we teach the content and we have revised some aspects more than others. But I thought…"
"Yes case studies are 12 marks each. I was under the impression that in order to get Level 2 students have to answer both aspects of the question. 3 developed ideas on both aspects of the question = 6 marks i.e. full marks at level 2. Then at level 3…"

"Great- thank you :)
