Did anyone attempt the essay question on global economic activity?

Yep I did! It was my favourite of all 3 :)

Good to hear. I found it quite challenging but I suppose it depends on which economic activity you have studied.

Guys you do realise there was already one set up at https://atarnotes.com/forum/index.php?board=2617.0
But oh well.

I thought it was alright but didn't really give much opportunity to show off my skills. I did urban places and ecosystems but think I completely went off my plan and went on a tangent or 2 argh. Oh well it wasn't too hard, wasn't too easy, and regardless of what NESA thinks of my performance in this one exam I do know my geo stuff hehe

If you did ecosystems at risk for the essay can you get marked down if you chose the same ecosystem for the essay and and 6-mark short answer because I ended up doing GBR for both even though we studied another ecosystem

Also I thought that there was barely anything (if any at all) that you could incorporate from the stimulus booklet into your essays

Yeah I did the same thing with the Great Barrier Reef too. I don't think you'll get marked down cause all the parts are marked by seperate criteria. In terms of the stimulus it doesn't help that the ecosystems essay asked for one ecosystem so you can't even use the waterfall.
