GCSE geography results

Showing 1 to 25 of 177

Hi, how did everyone do on their gcse geography exams, I got A* overall. A* for unit 1 A for unit 2 and A* for coursework. I'm taking it for A level so I was really pleased, and I'm looking forward to A level geography.

What exam board did you do? I had A* in first exam, A in the second one, and A* in coursework, and ended up one mark off an A*. I did WJEC spec A :)

well done, I did AQA spec A, what topics did you study, I did tectonics, rivers, coasts, population, urbanisation and development, I did best in unit 1 which was the physical paper, I do enjoy physical geography more than human.

In my first exam in year 10 I did rivers, climate change, active zone (hurricanes earthquakes and volcanoes, population, globalisation and development.

In the second one this year, i did 3 units on coasts, weather and climate, and tourism. (we had a choice of 3 out of 6 units, had to do at least 1 physical and one human) 

I did better in the first one, but I think my favourite ones are weather, population and globalisation.

We did coursework on rivers in year 10, and on tourism in year 11. :)

We had a trip too :) it was fun :) 

I wanted do do A level, but it clashed with chemistry in the option columns in my school, so i chose biology instead. They told me they might fit it in in September, but I don't really believe that.. I was so annoyed because of that actually...

that's annoying, I love geography, but I hated it in yr 7 and 8, but then we always seemed to do the same thing, maybe thats why.

Yeah, same I love it :) well, I wasn't here in year 7- I was in Poland :) But i think i've always liked it.

It was proberly down to me having an awful teacher in yr 7 and 8, but then she retired and i got a new one he taught me in yr 9 then in yr 10 and 11., so are you from poland?

Posted: 27-08-12 15:07 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

yeah, i moved her 2 years ago :) I loved my geography teacher in Poland :) 

Posted: 27-08-12 15:09 by Natalia

cool, does it snow a lot in poland, ilove it when it snows, but the last 2 times it snowed here i had flu so i couldn't go out, which was annoying.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:10 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

yeah, it does :) but we have hot summers too :) I love snow! i really miss the 'real winter' here... It almost never snows here.. 

Posted: 27-08-12 15:12 by Natalia

I think the last time i played in proper snow, was about 4 or 5 years ago it started snowing at the end of school and by the time i got home had covered the roads, and i only live about 3 mins walk away from school. my cat liked it he goes crazy in the snow but he doesn't like the cold:)

aw, i wish i snowed more :) my dog hasn't seen snow yet xD where do you live? I live in south Wales, in Swansea :) 

Posted: 27-08-12 15:20 by Natalia

cornwall, so we are the least likely to have snow in the whole country.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:29 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

yeah... I think i actually like winter more that summer... :) 

Posted: 27-08-12 15:34 by Natalia

same, I like the dark evenings and mornings and it just feels all cosy inside at that time, my birthday is in november so i always enjoy it then although sometimes i do wish it was in the summer so i could have a barbeque. I do stargazing so winter is always easier for me.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:38 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

yeah, same :) I just love the atmosphere of winter :) 

oh, i see :) stargazing sounds interesting :)

it is, i've got a telescope and i've seen some amazing things, but i haven't done any since early august because the weathers been rubbish, but last time i did i saw the milky way which was amazing.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:45 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

wow, i'd love to see something like that :) but i don't have the equipment.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:46 by Natalia

you don't need any equipment for seeing the milky way, I didn't use any as i was camping at the time and a telescope weighs a ton! You do need a dark sky somewhere away from city lights, I was in a feild 2 miles outside a town and i saw it so it doesn't have to be miles away although it's best if your not on a hill otherwise you will get lights  from other towns.

Posted: 27-08-12 15:58 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

oh, i see :) i should try it then :) most of the time i'm in the city, but i'll try :) 

Posted: 27-08-12 15:59 by Natalia

It is great, 4th time seeing it now, the first time was actually in my backgarden, it was a clear night in december and it was faint but i saw it. i wanted to see a meteor shower that happened a few weeks ago but it was cloudy, saw that one 2 years ago, another thing you don't need a telescope for, thats best naked eye, but binoculars are good for still objects. i wonder what stargazing in the snow is like?

Posted: 27-08-12 16:08 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

wow, that sounds amazing :) i've never seen one... it sounds magical to be honest :) 

Posted: 27-08-12 16:10 by Natalia

I've seen about 5, their one that happens in Janurary around the 3rd and one in december on the 28th, and several others, theres a list of them all here, the big ones are best:

the hourly rate is usually half of what it says if you are looking in a town or city.
