Lol, my land-use map looked so funny. I jsut absolutely talked about information that i didnt knoiw about, and used very technical Geography jargon :rofl: I talked about my issue (land and water), my link (aid) and how our population is causing pressure on demand and on our economy (ageing pop.)

Very good, extended response was similar to the trial geo exam, pretty easy questions... I sorta didnt undersatnd the land use map... especially how we needed to add a title n direction??? i new the direction (north) but the title was already something we needed to put.. did we have to add another titile?? i did, just under my 'north' sign just to b sure

I was thrown a bit by the extended response. it said discuss the population trends, which was fine, but then it went on to say talk about urban planning and ecological sustainability?? I knew how to answer it, but there was a whole bit i had planned about the ageing population which i wasnt sure if i should include. All up a pretty good exam tho. :)

The final question was based entirely on something we had to write an essay for in class just recently. Was happy about that. :D

It was easier than I thought.

For the 15 mark question, I used lots and lots of jargon that I didn't know half the meaning of :)

We were meant to draw out a map of hobart and pick out the residential (just the places with houses) areas and the recreational (places without houses: had the massive ovals and the building on it) areas.

Also to put an arrow with N (for north) on it

Um, for the aspect of the slope, I put down "west" because aspect refers to which direction the slope is facing, i.e. west.

LOL I know. What is a land-use map?
