    Most obvious prediction is plate tectonics theory but it's not guaranteed..people last year probably thought it would come up!

    Hi, how would you answer a Plate Theory 40 marker for the Tectonics section? I have no idea how to answer them and it looks like one may possibly come up this year!!
    Hi there
    It may be good to start with a basic description of what exactly the 'theory of plate tectonics is' to set the basis for the question.
    I would then start from the beginning with evidence from Wegener (continental drift) which LED to plate tectonic theory, do not get these mixed up. I would then go onto the following evidence e.g. sea-floor spreading, palaeomagnetism etc. Convection currents,etc.
    Then you could go onto the distribution of earthquakes/volcanoes and the plate boundaries they occur upon, which is fully relevant to the question as the distribution of these supports plate tectonic theory.
    It is also valuable to point out hotspots and how this doesn't necessarily support plate tectonic theory as they are just random plumes rising from depths that we do not know much about. However, the way we can see island chains develop is evidence for, as the plate moves over the hotspot creating various volcanoes (hawaii), showing evidence of convection currents and therefore plate tectonics.

    It may be useful to look at past mark schemes of these type of questions as they have bullet pointed areas that one may include.

    Hope this helps!

    I kind of hope it's plate tectonics theory like how many seismic and volanic activity questions can they do there's been like 8 :/

    Exactly! But who knows, it's possible they'll spring another one on us :/

    Hi, any predictions for conflict 40 marker? Any short answers predictions for tectonics and development would be appreciated too! Thanks
    Multiculturalism seems to be a strong contender for the conflicts 40 marker.

    Hi!

    I was thinking for world cities, the 40 marker could possibly be specific to transport management, as the examiner has recently published a report to do with Dhaka's transport system and stuff and apparently he loves to ask questions around his writing!

    What does everyone else think?

    For plate tectonics, I reckon it will be more seismic activity based. Measuring seismicity and the different waves hasn't featured for a while!

    Yes, but it might be specific to transport and transport management is mentioned as a point on the specification

    Yeah we predicted sustainability as a 40 marker! What other topics you doing?

    Ecosystems
    7 marker - unplanned / planned species
    8 marker - animal adaptations
    10 marker - tropical biome characteristics

    What grade does everyone need in geography? How did you all do last year?

    It's either theory question or a earthquake question for the 40. Or AQA may be dirty and give another volcano question

    Would they really do characteristics for a 10 marker tho? Also isn't the 7 marker generally linked to the other questions?

    Yes, but I think they'll link planned and unplanned species to a figure. Why wouldn't they do characteristics as a 10 marker? There's lots to talk about and lots of case study info. I could write 3 pages on it
