Did you guys do all 6 main challenges in megacities?

I only did 4 but evaluated in depth.... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
i did 3 lolllll, don't think it matters

yeah same i did 4 in depth, sanitation/access to clean water, traffic congestion and infrastructure, housing challenges and lack of employment
Noice.

I did housing, employment, pollution, & water/sanitation/waste

ok good

I had practically the same question in my half yearly, except it said "AT LEAST 2 RESPONSES".

I fell into the trap of doing every challenge & responses but didnt evaluate enough

its definitely 1:27.7
I can guarantee you all now that the gradient cannot be negative, despite whether or not you are going from a higher point to a lower point because in geography, order does not matter it's always the height of the highest point minus the height of the lower point. My teacher also told us to figure it out as run/rise as opposed to rise/run because then you get a whole number instead of a fraction (in this case i got 27.777 as the whole number) so then you just write it as 1:27.7777

I thought the rise between the 2 points was 185-100

i got 100 for the vertical exagerattion and 27.7777 for the gradient
yay exactly what i got...except i wrote the gradient as a fraction to get rid of the recurring decimal....is that bad?

Dash i think it has to be a ratio but you could still be fine

I wrote it like 1:27 7/9 (twenty seven and seven ninths) if that makes sense...

Pretty straight forward test. Im looking at 19/20 for mc going by what people are saying on here
i thought section 2 was really simple, straight from the syllabus and reckon i nailed it
i also had pre-prepared essays for essentially the same essay questions (25 & 26) + had them marked by my teacher who gave them 20/20 (she was a hsc marker is 2011)

over all feeling a high band 6, will be disappointed with any different
sounds like you're #winning

I was so happy with this exam, except for one or two multiple choices, and the cross section.
I predicted the mega cities and ecosystems, with worked out great too

so it was like 1:27

I'm pretty sure it can't be negative lol
YES!!! I got this too. And im sure it isn't negative.
