    I'm genuinely so jealous that you get to do the health one, hahaa.
    We're doing the rural landscapes one, and to be fair, the question is sooo boring!
    I'd rather be doing the one you're doing seen as the culture and environment didn't come up. I'm not too keen on this cultural one at all. At least it isn't focused on globalisation, that I find boring.

    Hmm true, I wouldn't want this exam being on globalisation and then it possibly being on the summer exam.
    Still, I find rural conflicts really boring :| so any alternative would be preferable! But heyyy.

    Not looking forward to the timing of the report though,I can't write fast! How'r you finding it all?

    I think that timing is going to be the hardest bit, but I am dreading it anyway.
    Being dyslexic, it isn't exactly easy to do long written exams, for example unit 2 at AS I got a D and the Unit 1 I got a B nearly a A in.
    I much prefer the shorter question papers.

    My timing is terrible. I struggled with it at GCSE and then in the build up to last years exams. I have written an answer to a question that could come up and its way too long...took me hours to do . I have no idea how we are meant to write this in an hour and a half and that introduction in 10...there seems to be loads to put in it.

    I'm might find the whole rural stuff more interesting than what I have to do. I'm quite interested in the countryside as I want to work there. But at least I've managed to sort out some interesting case studies compared to what other ones people are doing in my class for the same question.

    Anyone else out there doing cold environments?
    Just wondering how you're tackling our lovely topic . . .
    So far just memorising as many climatic processes as possible e.g the babe that milankovitch, and grabbing case studies of polar, temperate and relict glacial environments (and throwing in a bit of periglacial too) then anthropological global warming to finish
    Is there anything else people are doing? I honestly can't think how to extend it or what proportion of my revision to focus things on (more distribution, processes or past cold environments?)
    Basically anyone else feeling a little baffled and under prepared?

    Same here :| I can easily spend half an hour on just one section of the report.
    Yeah, we've written one in lessons, but there's the same problem - way too long, so hopefully I can cut it down this weekend somehow :confused:

    Ah ok, I wanted to do the health question for the same reason as you wanting to do rural!
    That's good though. We got given loads of case studies, so everyone at my school has the same ones, but I've done about four others because I don't want an examiner to think - "Oh, another cloned report." Haha

    what diseases are you doing? are you doing your report by each factor?
    sounds good to me!

    also, how many and what models is everyone doing health gonna use?


    i'm doing it by the stages of the Epidemiological Model.
    e.g
    Stage 1 (and 2) - socioeconomic - poor income/healthcare/poor education - HIV/AIDs endemic. environmental - climate change - increase in malaria, then also going to mention about cholera in Pakistan 2010.. due to water pollution

    then, stage 3 and stage 4

    going to try and put the kuznets curve in too!!!

    :eek: I had forgotten Kuznet (what is it again, I forget ) but that was pretty much my plan I hope all goes well and we can use it.

    Here is some of the revision I am doing for human health, if people want to look at it.

    Sorry for the abysmal spelling, the program doesn't have a spell-checker.

    KEY

    • House /SES is an Socio economic status case study
    • Arrows mean globalization related
    • Flower is environmental
    • Bomb is all of the above
    • Smile is a good source
    • GW is Global warming

    Both of the above :L Yeah I'm just going through my case studies and typing out the important bits, like a few key facts for each one I can expand on. I'd focus on Cold Environments as a product of Climatic Processes and Global warming, basically, what is it and how did it get there. Rather than doing generic things, do specific locations and how they got there. Show how your theory links into the case studies, and how the thoretical work is shown in either relict of present day case studies (best to have a variety).

    I'm brickin it about the exam on tuesday, so you're not the only one, haha :albertein:

    In general is about 90% for an A*
    80% for an A
    70% for a B and so on.. but it varies slightly every year

    Hopefully they will lower it a bit as this is only the second time they have run this exam.

    Ahh cheers, I thought it'd be about that but I was wondering if it'd be like last year's biology aqa A2 unit 4 exam, in which in was so hard you only needed like 50% for an A

    Ah that sounds like what I'm doing, so hey we can't both be wrong I really do wish there were less climatic processes though . . .there's always one I've forgotten in an practice exam eurgh ah well best of luck on Tuesday, lets panic through this geographers

    Now that would be nice, but doubtful on a pre release

    I am going to be adding OMRAN's Model as a quick sketch in my introduction as well as a graph showing GDP vs Health service performance. those are the only onse i could think of using as we arn't going to need to talk about transmition we carn't draw any of those models.
