- The distribution of marks is always 4 for question a and 8 for question b for both questions 3 and 4.
Section C: 25 marks
- The first question is usually on one topic – either Food or Plate Tectonics.
The other question is a mixed question on both topics. But bear in mind that the last question for both sections which is 8 marks each will not be on the same topic, so if 5d is on food, then 6d would be on plate tectonics.

For Section B, there will be 2 questions. You only choose ONE. One question will be purely on either weather & climate or purely on tourism. The other question will be a Mix of Both.
