Charachteristics of settlement on Polders
by Dok101 Junior Cert Geography — 30/05/17 10

In Q3 Aiii) of the Geography exam I wrote about 2 characteristics of settlement on Polders. I wrote about planned farms and how they are close to the sea. I realise now that I should've talked about the settlement being in a planned, radial pattern. Will I get any marks for my answer? How many marks will I lose for my answer? Thanks

You will get some marks as you mentioned a planned pattern but in my opinion I say you will lose marks as you didn't mention they were in a radial pattern which is the main characteristic of settlement on polders

Ok thanks How many marks do you think that specific question was worth

Id say 6 marks as 2 characteristics at 3 marks each (1 mark for statement and 2 for development )

Would you get much marks if you explained that it was radial by saying main town in the centre and all major roads lead to that town but didn't actually state that it has a radial pattern

Id say you would get most of your marks because your answer implied a radial pattern

I said that settlements on polders tended to have more modern buildings. Do you think I'd get the marks.
