Maeve Richardson – St. Annes Secondary School Tipperary Town
Geography as per usual involved a lot of writing and very little time to think. It was a generally alright paper though.
I was jumped straight to question one, well the second part, I had to wait on graph paper to do my sketch map! So I wrote about intrusive and extrusive volcanos. And then picked human activities with flood defences and wrote about the river Rhine.
Moving on to regional I had hoped for a map of Ireland but did India instead there was no difficult features here. Followed by tertiary activities in Paris (Tourism in my case) and then primary activities in Ireland for which I picked Dublin’s agricultural sector.
I then did my short questions when I felt more confident about the exam. I didn’t analyse these really I moved quickly but did notice there was no question on glaciers on its own.
Moving to human I found this alright. It wouldn’t be my strongest section. It was quite similar to both the mock papers going around. Ethnic and religion differences made an appearance to keep up with current events. I honestly shot through this section and I can’t remember what question I did.
Finally, I did Geoecology. I chose the human interaction question with the three headings. I was delighted to see this as if that question wasn’t there I probably would’ve walked out of the exam! So with five minutes to spare I finished feeling as if someone had tried to hammer my hand to pieces.
